Artichoke & asiago stuffed chicken

I was enjoying some artichoke and asiago dip I had purchased in the grocery store and thought to myself…I really want to stuff this in my chicken breast I’m making for dinner 😉 so I did, although I decided to make the dip from scratch. This chicken was so tasty and reminded me of my popular garlic bacon & cheese stuffed chicken. Simple dinners that paired with a salad are nice and low in points. This artichoke and asiago stuffed chicken breast is just 3 smart points on WW freestyle.

Serves: 4
 

3 freestyle SP, 5SP/6PP
Ingredients
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast *for freestyle the weight does not matter but for old SP/PP I based it on 5oz chicken breast
  • 4oz artichoke, oil drained and chopped *My jar was 6oz but I only needed 4oz of it which was approx ⅓ cup
  • ½ cup non fat plain greek yogurt
  • ⅛ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • 4 heaping Tbsp shredded asiago cheese
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • FOR COATING
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375, cover a baking sheet with some parchment paper and lightly spray.
  2. In a small bowl mix together your chopped and drained artichoke, yogurt, pepper, onion & garlic powder.
  3. Whisk your egg in a bowl, sprinkle your flour on a flat surface (I used a flat plate) mix your breadcrumbs, italian seasoning and garlic powder together and also place on a flat plate.
  4. Heat your 2 tsp oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.
  5. Cut open 1 side of your chicken and spoon in ¼ of your artichoke/yogurt mixture, sprinkle 1 heaping Tbsp of asiago cheese on top then close chicken breast *feel free to use toothpicks, I did not use them. Repeat for remaining chicken breasts.
  6. Coat your stuffed chicken breast in the flour, then dip in egg and then roll both sides in breadcrumbs.
  7. Sear the chicken breasts in the heated pan for 1 minute on each side then place on baking sheet.
  8. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes.
