Lasagna Stuffed Chicken smothered in cheese sauce 

A chicken breast smothered in cheesy, saucy goodness. It is absolutely delicious and another dilemma sorted on what to make with chicken breasts.

I served it with microwaved baked potatoes with copious amounts of butter and the sauce used to make the chicken and some simple fried rice.

2 chicken breasts (I used 4, as they were rather small)
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 egg
3 teaspoons Italian seasoning, divided
½ tsp parsley (my addition)
2 cloves crushed garlic
½ teaspoon salt
2 turns of pepper grinder (my addition)
2 cups shredded mozzarella, divided
1 cup marinara sauce (I used tomato and basil pasta sauce)
2 tbsp parmesan cheese (the packet kind – my addition)
Additional Salt and Pepper, to taste

Butterfly chicken breasts and place into a lightly greased baking dish.
I seasoned both sides first with chicken spice.
In a small mixing bowl, stir together ricotta cheese, egg, 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, parmesan and 1 cup mozzarella cheese.
Spoon about ¼ cup of sauce onto one half of each chicken breast.
Spread ricotta mixture on top of the sauce and fold chicken breasts over to close.
Drizzle remaining sauce over chicken.
Top with remaining mozzarella cheese.
Sprinkle with remaining Italian seasoning and season with salt and pepper.
Bake in a 200-degree oven for 25-30 minutes, until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165F.
