Healthy Stuffed Chicken Breast
I could eat this stuffed chicken breast every single day. It’s super tender, tastes fantastic, and is a healthy meal all by itself – no sides required!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
- 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
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!
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
