Cheryl's Recipe Corner:
  • Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken 
  • Oil, for greasing pan 
  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves 
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cut into 1/2 inch slices 
  • 1 (8 ounce) package Cheddar cheese, cut into 1/2 inch slices 
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 1 1/2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs 
  • 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese 
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic 
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted 
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice 
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt, or to taste 
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly coat a large, shallow baking dish with oil. 
  2. Butterfly each breast by slicing in half horizontally through the center, cutting almost but not completely through. Place one slice each of Cheddar and cream cheese in the center of each breast. Close again as if placing between the pages of a book. Set aside.
  3. Pour milk into a shallow bowl. In a separate bowl, combine breadcrumbs and Romano cheese. Carefully dip each breast first in milk, then in breadcrumb mixture, patting lightly to firmly coat. Place breasts side by side in a single layer in pre-oiled baking dish, tucking edges under to seal.
  4. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in lemon juice and garlic, and drizzle evenly over chicken. Season breasts with garlic salt and paprika, if using.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until no longer pink in center and juices run clear.

  • Egg Mock-Muffins! 
  • This is a GREAT recipe for those that have very little time for breakfast. Make these ahead (they can be frozen!) and pop one in the microwave for about a minute to have a little handheld omelet of sorts for breakfast in the car!
  • 1 Dozen Eggs 
  • Milk
  • Meat of choice (ham, bacon, sausage, etc.), optional 
  • Shredded cheese of choice, optional 
  • Vegetables of choice (spinach, onions, tomatoes, peppers, etc), optional 
  • Seasoning (hot sauce, salt, pepper, garlic powder, etc.), optional 
  • Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Break all eggs into a bowl (actually a measuring cup or pitcher is perfect for this, as you will be "pouring" the eggs into the muffin pan), add a little milk and mix this together WELL.  Spray each of the cups of a muffin pan with cooking spray.  Fill each muffin cup about 1/2 full with egg, and then add a little bit of meat, cheese, vegetables, and seasonings you want (you don't want the muffin cup more than 3/4 full!).  Gently stir the mixture in each muffin cup to distribute the items you added. 
  • Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes.  Cool completely, then place the egg muffins into a freezer bag and freeze until ready to use.  I suggest that you place a few muffins (or however many you think you will eat for breakfast) in a smaller freezer bag so you can just move it from fridge to freezer the night before, then the next morning you can pop them in the microwave for about a minute - and they're ready to go out the door and you can eat them on the way to work or school.
