Donna - FFW of Tasty Treasures, a blog I love, posted this recipe for Chicken Mutz on Sunday. It looked so good and simple to make that I was immediately inspired to make it, and I did so tonight. (I also had some left over mozza to use up, though I had to scrape the mold off...) I cut the recipe down to a single serving, and as I had no bread crumbs, Italian or otherwise, I used a few crushed triscuits - a tip I picked up from my roommate. The result: excellent!
Chicken Mutz (a la Coyote)
1 chicken breast
2 - 3 strips of mozzarella cheese
3 Triscuits, crushed
1 tbsp low fat mayo
1/8 tsp each paprika, basil, and garlic powder
salt & pepper
Season chicken with salt & pepper. Cut a pocket in the chicken breast and insert the mozza strips. Place chicken in a baking dish and close the pocket as best you can. Spread mayo all over the chicken and then sprinkle the crushed Triscuits over the top. Sprinkle with spices. Bake at 400F for 20 25 minutes or until done.
I served mine with some roasted nugget potatoes and some stirfried bok choy that my roommate had offered me. It was a great dinner. Thanks Donna - FFW!
