Notes

  1. If you don't own a meat mallet to mash these out, a good old rolling pin will work just fine.
  2. You can use already trimmed chicken breasts if you'd like, they will come in smaller portions and weight, so adjust baking time accordingly.
  3. This recipe can easily be doubled or one and a halved to serve a larger family.
  4. We regularly switch out our cheese types from Monterey Jack, Swiss, Mozzarella and even Cheddar.
  5. Make sure that the internal temperature of your chicken is at least 165 degrees F before consuming.
