Baked Chicken Breast with Cheese and Tomato

I want you to pay attention on one more variant of meat in French, beloved by many. In this recipe we will bake chicken fillet under a hat of processed cheese mixed with egg yolks and mayonnaise. As a result, the meat turns tender and juicy, and the cheese hat remains soft even after cooling. Onions and fresh tomatoes make chicken fillets especially juicy and flavorful, in addition you can add slices of Bulgarian pepper or mushrooms. The recipe is fast enough, budgetary and low-calorie. Bake such a delicious chicken fillet on weekdays or on holidays.

  • 1. Thoroughly wash chicken fillet, dry with paper towels and clean from foams and fat. Cut each fillet along into two elongated pieces of the same thickness. Sprinkle each piece of meat from both sides with a mixture of salt, black pepper and seasoning for chicken.
  • 2. Cover the chicken with food film, cut the meat from both sides with a culinary hammer, so that it becomes more tender and juicy.
  • 3. Cover the refractory baking tray with food foil. Lubricate it with vegetable oil, so that the chicken fillet does not stick during baking. Lay out the pieces of the chicken fillet in the prepared mold in one layer. Clear the onion from the husk and cut it into semi-rings. To remove excess bitterness, scald the vegetables with boiling water. Lay the half rings of the onion over the meat.

  • 4. Wash fresh tomatoes and cut into thin half-rings. Put them on top of the onion.
  • 5. Grind processed cheese on a grater with a large cloth.
  • 6. Add 2 chicken yolks and a little mayonnaise to the grated cheese. Mix the mixture thoroughly to make it homogeneous.

  • 7. Evenly distribute the cheese mass for each piece of chicken meat.
  • 8. Now put our blanks to a preheated oven to 180 degrees. Bake the meat at an average level of about 40 minutes, so that the fillet is completely baked, and the cheese hat is browned. Transfer the ready meat to plates and serve in portions with vegetable salad or potato garnish.
