Laughing Cow Chicken

I learned of this recipe from a What's Cooking nestie blog, Macaroni and Cheesecake (original recipe from Elizabeth's Cooking Experiments, here). I've always loved Laughing Cow cheese and have wanted to try recipes with it, but my husband is like a kid when it comes to trying new things. He tasted some of the cheese at a New Year's get together and liked it, so I knew when we came back I would have the okay to start seeking out recipes that use this yummy product! This turned out really good. We already like breaded & baked chicken, and this was a nice twist. I made it with baked potatoes & steamed green beans to keep the dishes simple for Lost night!

Laughing Cow Chicken
2 5 oz chicken breasts pounded thin
2 laughing cow garlic herb flavor cheese wedges
1/2 cup italian bread crumbs
2 Tbs Parmesan Cheese, grated
1 egg
Cooking Spray

Roll one cheese wedge into pounded out chicken and secure tightly with toothpicks. Roll through beaten egg and mixture of breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees on a shallow baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spray top of chicken with cooking spray and cook for 5-10 minutes more or until tops are golden and crisp.
