Impressed Chicken and Fruited CousCous

So here is another one that I don't have pictures of. I need to make it again before I can do that. However, this was VERY tasty and the kids gobbled it right up! I couldn't think of anything to call it other then "impressed chicken". I served it with something else new, "fruited couscous" again, very tasty! So here you go! This fed all 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 kids.

3 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
4oz (1/2 a block) cream cheese
2tsp garlic powder
tsp paprika
2tsp CRUSHED dried basil
2tsp CRUSHED dried oregano
2tsp CRUSHED dried parsley
1/2tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp minced dried onion
1/2 C seasoned flour (mix in some salt paprika garlic powder and pepper)
2 eggs mixed with about 1/2 C water
1C seasoned bread crumbs mixed with
1/4C crushed cheeze-its (left overs from the kids snacking)

pound the chicken thin
mix the cream cheese, paprika, garlic, onion, pepper, basil, oregano, and parsley together
divide the cheese into 1/3s and place each portion into the center of the chicken, fold the sides of the chicken OVER the cheese and then roll up.
Wrap in plastic wrap, and put into the freezer for about 30 mins or in the fridge for a few hours.
Mix up the seasoned flour, and bread crumbs.
Beat the eggs and water together.
roll the chicken in the flour, then egg then breadcrumbs.
preheat the oven to 400*
I would have liked to put the chicken in the fridge for another half hour at least, but didn't have time
Bake in oven for 30 mins uncovered (check temp at least 160* please!!)
Remove from oven and let set for about 10 mins.

YUM!!! This came out so good I was SO impressed with myself!! I served it with fruited couscous.

1 1/2 C water
1/2 tsp chicken base
1/8 C dried apples
1/8 C crasins
1 C pearl couscous
1Tblsp butter

heat water to boiling
add everything but couscous
simmer for 3 mins, add couscous
cook stirring occasionally for 5 mins
add butter and stir cooking for another 3-4 mins
let set for 5 mins
Try it, impress everyone!!
