Baked Chipotle Mozzarella Cheese Bites

Ingredients

  • 12 count package Weight Watchers Light Mozzerella String Cheese
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 tbsp chipotle chile pepper seasoning {use half if you want less spicy}
  • Your favorite dip for serving

Instructions

  • Unwrap the string cheese and cut each stick into 1 inch cubes.
  • Make a breading station by setting out three plates or large bowls.
  • Add beaten eggs to one, flour to one, and mix together panko and chipotle seasoning for the third plate.
  • First, dip the cheese cubes in flour, shake off excess, then dip in egg and then coat with the seasoned panko.
  • Place on a plate and repeat with all remaining cheese cubes.
  • Place the coated cheese in the freezer for 30 minutes {this helps them not ooze out in the oven}.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Remove cheese from the freezer and place them on a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 8 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and place on a serving platter along with your favorite dip. I like Chipotle Ranch or Marinara.
