How to Prepare the Stuffed Chicken Breast
The process is quite simple. Butterfly the chicken breast horizontally but leave it connected at one side. Stuff it with layers of your selected ingredients. For example, we recommend slices of roasted red peppers, brazil leaves, and mozzarella, although this is just one of many flavor options! Close the chicken breast and season it well with salt and pepper on all sides. Bake the stuffed chicken for 30 to 40 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until it’s cooked through and the juices run clear.
Possible Flavor Variations
If you’re not into red peppers or if mozzarella isn’t your favorite type of cheese, don’t worry! This recipe lends itself to easy customization! What you need is any type of veggie, a creamy component such as cheese, and something exciting like a spice herb for an added zing. For example, you could try a cream cheese, artichoke hearts, and spinach combo. Some might enjoy sliced tomato, sliced zucchini, and feta cheese in their chicken breast. The possibilities are endless!
The Recipe Is Easy to Scale
Because this stuffed chicken recipe is so simple to make, you can scale it up or down however you like, making just one stuffed breast for yourself or as many as can fit in your oven for a family dinner. You don’t have to stand over a pan all evening, which means that the time requirements for cooking stay the same, no matter how many you’re making.
