Hey everyone, I’m here today to talk about my favorite dinner recipe – Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast. This dish is delicious, easy to make, and full of flavor.
I was first introduced to this dish by a friend who was making it for dinner. The moment I saw it, I knew I had to try it. I love how the combination of the cheesy and creamy filling with the juicy chicken breast was a match made in heaven.
The first thing I do to make this dish is to prepare the chicken breasts. I remove any fat from the chicken and season it with a little salt and pepper. I then prepare the stuffing by combining steamed broccoli, cheese, and mayonnaise.
Next, I place the chicken breasts in an oven-safe dish and spread the stuffing on top. I then bake the dish at 350°F for about 25 minutes. After that, I remove the dish from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before uncovering it.
The final product is a golden, cheesy and delicious stuffed chicken breast. The flavors are so amazing and the texture is just perfect. The cheese and mayo create a creamy and flavorful filling inside the juicy chicken. And the broccoli adds a nice crunch to the dish.
I love to serve this dish with a side of roasted potatoes or a simple salad. It’s such a great dinner meal that is both healthy and incredibly delicious.
