    MONTEREY CHICKEN BREAST MELTS

    (Chicken Breasts, bread crumb dusted, filled and topped with melted Monterey Jack Cheese).

    2 Chicken Breasts
    Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
    Cup Italian Bread Crumbs
    1 Tbsp. Parsley
    1 Tsp. EACH Oregano, Basil and Garlic Powder
    Tsp. Pepper and Salt
    4 Tbsps. Softened Butter
    1 Block (5 oz.) Monterey Jack Pepper Cheese

    4 Toothpicks

    Preparation:

    POUND breasts with a mallet to flatten.

    COMBINE parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, oregano, basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

    SPRINKLE flattened breasts each with a tablespoon of the bread crumb mixture (2 tablespoons used here total). Remaining crumbs used later.

    NEXT place a small amount of butter along with a 1/4" slice of Monterey Jack Pepper cheese on to each breast.

    ROLL up or fold best you can and secure with a toothpick.

    BRUSH each breast with softened butter and sprinkle the tops and sides with the remaining bread crumb mixture.

    PLACE on a glass baking (pie) dish and bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes.

    When time is reached, place another 1/4" slice of Monterey Jack Pepper cheese over each breast top and return to oven for another 2 - 3 minutes longer, just enough to melt the cheese on top.
