Grant Batchelder, temporary Treadaway Hall director, works part time at St. Mary’s and enjoys cooking for his wife in his spare time. However, being a vegetarian sometimes limits what he can taste while cooking a meal. Batchelder talks about his specialty mozzarella stuffed chicken dish and his love for cooking.

Ingredients:

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 cup panko and bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 1 ½ tablespoon garlic
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • parsley
  • 1 stick of mozzarella
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • olive oil
  • toothpicks

Directions:

First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. While the oven is heating up, take a bowl and mix flour, panko, salt, garlic, paprika and parsley. In another bowl, whisk eggs and milk till smooth.

Take defrosted chicken breasts, pound with hands till it’s flat (if the chicken breasts are already flattened, then disregard). Take half of mozzarella stick and put in the center of breast. Using toothpicks, pin the chicken breast together wrapping it around the cheese. Take wrapped chicken and roll it in the egg then batter it in the panko mixture.

Place the chicken breasts in a safe container and put it in the oven. Set the timer for three 10-minute increments, cooking it in the oven for a total of 30 minutes. After every 10 minutes, take the mozzarella stuffed chicken out of the oven, occasionally basting the chicken with olive oil to cook thoroughly. Finally, remove from the oven, let it cool and enjoy the dish!
