Food Friday - Parmesan Chicken

Today's post is later than most. I have been SUPER busy getting ready for this long break from work. (A WHOLE WEEK OFF!) Today's Food Friday is one that we just LOVE! I tried it about 2 weeks ago and was nervous when I saw the recipe but love it (almost) more than any other Food Friday recipe.

For Parmesan Chicken (from the amazing Betty Crocker website), you will need:

2    cups Original Bisquick® mix

1/2    teaspoon garlic powder

1/2    cup boiling water

4    slices (3/4 oz each) provolone cheese

4    thin slices (about 1 oz each) cooked ham

4    large (about 1/2 lb) uncooked chicken breast tenders (not breaded)

1    tablespoon butter or margarine, melted

4    teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese

1    cup tomato pasta sauce, heated

1 Heat oven to 375°F (if using dark or nonstick pan, heat oven to 350°F).

2 In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, garlic powder and boiling water with fork until dough forms. Divide dough into fourths. Place dough pieces on surface dusted with Bisquick mix; roll in Bisquick mix to coat. Press each piece into 7x5-inch rectangle, 1/4 inch thick.

3 Center 1 provolone cheese slice and 1 ham slice on each rectangle, folding to fit if needed. Top each with 1 chicken tender. Starting at 7-inch side, roll up each bundle. Press ends and seam to seal. Tuck ends under. On ungreased cookie sheet, place seam side down. Brush with butter; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
4 Bake 25 to 33 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted in center of chicken reads 170°F and bundles are golden brown. Serve topped with pasta sauce.

 Because of THIS recipe and a Drop Biscuit recipe, I discovered I LOVE Bisquick. A lot. Like I want to try every recipe possible with it. It is amazing.

I am keeping this short and sweet because it is now CHRISTMAS VACATION! Have a safe, delicious, happy, wonderful holiday weekend and Merry Christmas to you all. If I don't post this weekend, I promise to be back by Monday! I will miss you blogger friends!
