Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup low-moisture mozzarella shredded
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1/3 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. paprika divided
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Freshly chopped parsley to garnish

Instructions

  • Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board and cut horizontally through the breasts. Put the breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound them with the flat side of a meat tenderizer, until they appear to be of even thickness.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the mozzarella, Parmesan, ricotta, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over medium-high heat. Arrange the chicken on the skillet and season it with salt and 1 teaspoon of paprika. Cook the chicken for about 5 minutes, until a golden crust appears, and then flip.
  • Divide the cheese mixture into four equal parts and spread it evenly on top of the chicken. Sprinkle it with the remaining paprika.
  • Cover with a lid and cook for another 5-7 minutes, until the cheese melts and the chicken is cooked through. Garnish with parsley and serve.
