Inside Out Chicken Parm

Inside Out Chicken Parm

What did I say, inside out chicken parm?  What a concept!  I wanted to make some really good chicken parm, but thought I could change it up.  We’ve stuffed chicken with cheese, bacon, and spinach.  So I thought, why not take the parm outside, and move it to the inside?  So that’s what we did.

We took the thick chicken breasts and carved out a little pocket on the side.  We didn’t just make a flap, we cut a deep slit so we could stuff the chicken.  We threw together some mozzarella cheese, sauce, spices, rolled them in bread crumbs, and pinned them shut.  Voila!
