Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Servings:
Makes 20 skewers.

Ingredients

4 mozzarella cheese sticks, cut into fifths
1/4 pound boneless chicken breast (slightly more is okay)
3/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 1/2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg
1 tbsp. milk
1/8 tsp. salt
a pinch of pepper
20 skewers

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Beat egg and milk to make an egg wash. Set aside. Place flour in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Spread Panko crumbs evenly on a cookie sheet. Bake until crumbs are golden brown, about 3 minutes. Stir halfway if Panko begins to brown unevenly. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Place in a small bowl and stir in Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese.
  4. Working in batches of 4 or 5 pieces at a time, roll mozzarella in flour, shake off excess, dip into egg wash, and roll in Panko mixture. Place on a plate. Continue to coat all of the cheese. Freeze for 1 hour to prevent oozing during baking.
  5. Meanwhile, cut chicken into 20 small bite size pieces (about 1 inch thick each). Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Use the same dredging process as for the mozzarella, dipping in flour, then egg, then Panko. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Can be chilled while waiting for the cheese. Do not freeze.
  6. Remove mozzarella from freezer after one hour. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Spray top of cheese with cooking spray. Spray top of chicken with cooking spray. Bake both in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for about 8 minutes. The chicken is done when it becomes white inside; do not over bake.
  7. To serve, work quickly to place one chicken and one mozzarella bite on each skewer. Serve with marinara sauce. Makes 20 skewers.
  8. To double the recipe, use these measurements: 8 mozzarella cheese sticks, cut into fifths 1/2 pound boneless chicken breast (slightly more is okay) 1 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs 1/2 cup flour 1 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning 3 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese 2 eggs 2 tbsp. milk 1/4 tsp. salt 1/8 tsp. pepper 40 skewers
