Ingredients

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 oz. low-fat mozzarella
  • 1 artichoke heart (from a can)
  • 1 tsp. sundried tomato, chopped
  • 5 large basil leaves
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ¼ tsp. curry powder
  • ¼ tsp. paprika
  • Pinch of pepper
  • Toothpicks

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 365 F (185 C).
  • Cut the chicken breast almost halfway through with a sharp knife.
  • Chop up the mozzarella, artichoke, basil, tomato, and garlic. Mix to combine and stuff it into the cut chicken breast.
  • Use a few toothpicks to close the chicken breast around the stuffing (you can see how in the video above).
  • Place the chicken breast on a baking sheet or aluminum foil, and season it with pepper, curry powder, and paprika.
  • Bake for around 20 minutes (depending on the size of the chicken breast).
  • Remember to remove the toothpicks before serving, and you're done!
  • Optional: To make the chicken breast even more tender, start by brining it in salt water as described in my post “How To Cook The Perfect Chicken Breast”.
