Broccoli Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast is filled with a simple broccoli cheese mixture, seared in a skillet, then baked to perfection.

But seriously, this chicken is so easy to make!

Tips for making this Broccoli Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast:

  • Chop your broccoli florets nice and small so they can all fit inside the chicken
  • Pick large chicken breasts
  • Don’t cut your chicken breast all the way through, just enough to create a pocket
  • If you don’t have an oven safe skillet, you can sear the chicken in a skillet first, then transfer to an oven safe dish

Broccoli Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast

Broccoli Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast is filled with a simple broccoli cheese mixture, seared in a skillet, then baked to perfection.

Prep Time – 5 min
Cook Time – 20 min
Total Time – 25 min

Ingredients

  • 3 large chicken breasts
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder, divided
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 cup finely chopped broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup mild cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp mayo
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, paprika and 1/2 tsp of the garlic powder. Use a sharp knife to cut a slice through the middle of the chicken breasts, but not all the way through, creating a pocket for the filling.
  3. For the filling, place the broccoli in a microwaveable dish and add about 2 tablespoons of water. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 1 minute. Drain any excess water. To the dish add the bell pepper, cheese, mayo, remaining garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste. Mix until combined, then divide the mixture between the chicken breasts, using a toothpick to secure if necessary.
  4. Heat a large, oven safe skillet (I prefer to use a cast iron skillet), over medium heat and add the olive oil. Sear the chicken for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Cover skillet with foil and bake in preheated oven for 15- 17 minutes, or until chicken reads 165 degrees. Let rest, covered for 5 minutes before enjoying.
