Nacho-rific Stuffed Chicken

contributed by Marcia Bailey

Ingredients:
1/2 cup fat-free refried beans
4 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
1/4 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
16 low-fat baked tortilla chips (like the kind by Guiltless Gourmet)
1 tsp. dry taco seasoning mix
Four 5-oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast cutlets, pounded to 1/3-inch thickness
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/4 cup taco sauce, divided
Optional toppings: fat-free sour cream, salsa
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray and set aside.
To make the filling, combine beans, cheese wedges, and shredded cheese in a bowl. Mix thoroughly and
set aside.
Put chips in a sealable plastic bag and crush with your hands or a rolling pin. Add taco seasoning and
give it a good shake to mix. Set aside.
Place cutlets flat on a clean, dry surface, and season with salt and black pepper. Spoon filling onto the
centers of the cutlets, evenly dividing it among them (about 2 tbsp. each). Carefully roll each cutlet up
over the filling (which may ooze a little, but don’t worry!) and secure with toothpicks, if needed. Transfer to
the baking sheet.
Cover each stuffed cutlet with 1 tbsp. taco sauce, using the back of the spoon or your fingers to coat.
Coat cutlets with crumb mixture. Cover the baking sheet with foil, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
Carefully remove foil. Bake until chicken is cooked through and outsides are crispy, about 15 additional
minutes.
Let cool slightly and remove toothpicks (if using). If you like, top with sour cream and salsa. Enjoy!
