I grew up on my mother’s chicken cutlets. They are delicious, and warm, and go with just about anything as a side. Let’s be honest though, plain chicken cutlets can get boring if you have them too often. My husband loves buffalo chicken wings with blue cheese dressing. And I thought, why not combine the two? This recipe is simple enough to make on a week night and will easily spice up dinner. The spicy and crispy breading, warm and juicy chicken, cool and creamy blue cheese are a winning combination. I served this with a tomatoes baked with cheese. My husband liked this meal so much he made me promise I would make it again.
Blue Cheese Stuffed Buffalo Chicken
2 egg whites, beaten
Crumbled blue cheese
Franks Red Hot (or your preferred buffalo sauce)
Bread crumbs (plain or seasoned work)
Melt about two tablespoons of butter in a small pot. Stir in about one cup of buffalo sauce. (usually I do this part by sight) Mix the buffalo sauce and breadcrumbs. Take the chicken breasts and slit a pocket into each breast, careful not to cut all the way through the breast, and stuff the pocket with blue cheese crumbles. Heat some vegetable oil in a non-stick skillet on medium. Dip the chicken breasts in the egg whites and then dredge though the breadcrumb mixture making sure to get a nice coat of breadcrumbs on the chicken breasts. Fry the breasts on medium heat until they are cooked through. Some cheese might spill out, but don’t worry… There will be plenty of flavor left.
