Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast Recipe

Elevate your dinner with this delicious and easy-to-make broccoli and cheese stuffed chicken breast recipe. Tender chicken breasts are filled with a flavorful mixture of broccoli and melted cheese, creating a satisfying meal that’s perfect for any occasion.

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Toothpicks (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a bowl, combine the chopped broccoli florets and shredded cheddar cheese. Mix well.
  3. Lay the chicken breasts flat on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to make a pocket in each chicken breast by slicing horizontally through the thickest part, being careful not to cut all the way through.
  4. Stuff each chicken breast with the broccoli and cheese mixture, dividing it evenly among them. Secure the openings with toothpicks if necessary.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  6. Brush the seasoned olive oil mixture over the stuffed chicken breasts, coating them evenly.
  7. Place the stuffed chicken breasts in a baking dish, and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the center.
  8. Once cooked, remove the toothpicks (if used) and serve the broccoli and cheese stuffed chicken breasts hot, alongside your favorite sides. Enjoy!
