Every recipe has a story! Kristine told us hers: “I love to cook healthy and break the stereotype that eating “healthy” only consist of rabbit food. It’s all about a variety of flavors, healthy alternatives, creativity, fresh organic ingredients, love, and soul while cooking that will bring out the most amazing taste while feeling guilt free! Healthy food can be delicious without the cholesterol fat!” -Kristine
What you need:
8 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
8 Ounces fresh Dungeness crabmeat
8 Ounces fat free cream cheese
3 Cups fresh bread crumbs
1 Cup whole-wheat flour
2 Eggs, beaten
2 Tbsp. minced onion
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh green onion
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tsp. minced garlic
1/8 Tsp. lemon pepper
Directions: (Approximate cook time: 25 minutes; Serves 8 adults.)
In a medium bowl combine the cream cheese, onion, garlic and lemon pepper. Add crabmeat and mix thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Using a small sharp knife, cut in half horizontally through the center of each chicken breast half, creating a pocket. Fill each pocket with 1/4 of the crab stuffing. Then dip each chicken piece into flour, eggs and finally bread crumbs to coat. Make sure to cover completely.)
In a large skillet melt butter or margarine with oil over medium heat. Add filled, breaded chicken breast halves to skillet and saute until golden brown and cooked through (juices run clear), about 10 minutes each side. Remove from skillet, drain on paper towels and serve.
Remove from skillet, drain on paper towels. Serve immediately. (Goes well with a light side salad!)
Eat & enjoy!
