Broccoli Cheddar Stuffed Chicken Breasts!
By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!
Oh boy, having such a hard time deciding what to make tonight. I am trying to eat a little healthier, knock out the white bread, rice, potatoes, pasta¼ all the good stuff. I love stuffed chicken breasts, but most of the time I see them they are breaded. I am going to make these with no breading. I think they will be really good!
2 large Chicken Breasts
1 cup broccoli florets (cut small)
¼ cup diced onion
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (I use 2%), divided
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp. olive oil
Preheat oven to 425°F
Lightly steam broccoli for approximately 3 minutes.
Butterfly the chicken.
Pound to 1/4 inch thick. Season with salt and pepper inside.
Place ½ of the broccoli on each breast, sprinkle with a little of the onion. Using ½ of a cup of the cheese, divide evenly over the broccoli.
Roll up and secure with butcher string or a toothpick. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and place in oven for about 30 minutes or until cooked through.
Remove from oven, remove the string.
Sprinkle with the rest of the cheese.
Place back in oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
Remove from oven, let cool about 5 minutes, the cut the breasts in half and serve.
