This is a really simple and cheap last minute meal. I am a chicken lover and lately a broccoli lover too. My children and husband all love cheese. How could this meal fail right? This Broccoli cheese stuffed chicken will be a family hit. And a big plus for me, the oven was on and heating up our very cold kitchen. This will be happening a lot this winter.
My chicken breasts weren’t very big, not too thick. I butterflied them. You can also pound them… I do not do this. I cannot do this. I make a mess. I destroy chicken doing this. But please, all the power to you if you can.
After butterflying my chicken breasts, I slice some cheddar cheese and chop broccoli into small pieces. Sprinkle some garlic power inside the chicken. Add a small amount of broccoli and piece of cheese, then another small amount of broccoli. Close your butterfly and use a toothpick or a raw piece of spaghetti to keep it closed.
Sprinkle a little paprika over the top.
For easy clean up I line a baking sheet with tin foil. Line your chicken breast up as you make them.
Bake at 400 for 25 minutes or until fully cooked.
Cheese will pour out. I haven’t figured out a way to stop this, and I have made this many, many times. There is nothing that taste a good as this! Or, at least, nothing chicken and broccoli related. This broccoli cheese combination is to die for…
