Broccoli Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

2 cups chopped cooked broccoli florets

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 minced red or green bell pepper

2 minced garlic cloves

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Prepare the Chicken:

Cut a pocket in each chicken breast without cutting all the way through.

Season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and paprika.

Make the Filling:

In a bowl, mix together the chopped cooked broccoli, minced bell pepper, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, minced garlic, and additional salt and pepper to taste.

Stuff the Chicken:

Stuff each chicken breast with the broccoli cheese mixture.

Cook the Chicken:

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Sear both sides of the stuffed chicken breasts until golden brown.


Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

Transfer the seared chicken breasts to a baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked through.


If needed, use toothpicks to hold the filling inside the chicken breasts. Remember to discard them before serving.
