Mozzarella Chicken

This one is yummy. Takes a little bit of prep but definitely worth it.

4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup butter, divided
Salt & Pepper to taste
4 slices of mozzarella cheese
1 egg beaten
2 cups all purpose flour for coating
1 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs (I like four cheese bread crumbs)
2 tsp minced garlic
1 cup dry white wine
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and greasea 13 x 9 pan.
  2. Place chicken between two pieces of plastic wrap and flatten with a meat pallet.
  3. Spread 1/4 cup butter over the inside of the chicken, then add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Place a slice of cheese on chicken, roll and close with toothpicks.
  5. Repeat with each breast.
  6. Dip rolled breast in flour, then egg, and then bread crumbs.
  7. Place coated breast in greased pan.
  8. To made sauce, melt 1/4 cup butter and add garlic. Add wine and simmer all together - about 5 minutes.
  9. Pour sauce over chicken and bake in preheated oven for 30-45 minutes.

Serve with noodles & butter and a side salad.
