Ingredients

How to make it

  • Clean the chicken and butterfly the breast
  • pound with a mallet lightly
  • cut the cheese into 6- 2oz bars
  • dip the chicken breast into the milk
  • dredge in the flour
  • repeat again but this time in the bread crumbs
  • put the cheese into the pocket of the butterflied chicken
  • close tightly
  • wrap the bacon slices around the entire chicken breast
  • leave about a half inch of space between the bacon spirals
  • so it looks like a candy cane
  • pin the ends of the bacon with toothpicks
  • deep fry in your favorite oil- i use canola
  • just deep enough to cover the breast
  • cook until it starts turning golden brown (about five minutes or so)
  • dont worry about the chicken being fully cooked
  • if you see cheese coming out remove faster.
  • remove breast and toothpicks (they will stay together now without them)
  • now in a large casserole baking dish combine all three cans of tomatos
  • season slightly with italian spices and add garlic
  • slowly add in the chicken breast
  • the sauce shouldnt be more than half way up the chicken
  • sprinkle the dish with fresh romano cheese and parsley
  • bake at about 275-285 degrees for up to 60 minutes (covered)
  • five minutes un-covered to bring out more flavor in the cheese
  • check chicken for doneness-
  • serve with an italian veg- i like italian green beans
  • take a bow and enjoy the ticker tape parade!,,
  • ciao pauly!
