Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  • Combine broccoli and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave on high power for 2 minutes. Drain.

  • Combine cooked broccoli, pepperjack cheese, mayonnaise, mushrooms, and garlic powder in a large bowl.

  • Season both sides of each chicken breast with paprika, salt, and pepper. Use a sharp knife to cut a slice through the middle of each breast to create a deep pocket, making sure not to cut all the way through. Evenly stuff each breast with broccoli mixture and place on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, about 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Besides the fact that the flavor, or lack of, the recipe is bland and the cooking time is much to long...I would not even try to doctor this recipe... Read More

Make this dish 1st time as directed--and you'll know Nicole loves chicken as she does soup; basically simple on hand available ingredients to put together and a time-saver to cook ( earned 5 stars )---what's there not to love about this recipe? Going in to make this a second time I thought outside the box: I took the oven ready stuffed chicken breasts....and brush coated them with BBQ sauce wrapping each one with 2-3 strips of thick cut LEAN bacon ( again recipe earned 5 stars--everyone LOVED this! ). Oh and if you tend to have extra stuffing mixture in your bowl try combining it with coleslaw cut cabbage or salad-cut lettuce and crispy bacon bits from extra made bacon slices. Read More

Mine was a little dry but a very good recipe. I used a yogurt mixture from a previous recipe instead of mayo. Maybe lightly brush the chicken with the mayo or yogurt in addition to the salt & pepper& paprika. I had 3 breasts and didn't use all of it in the stuffing so I served the extra on the side with whole roasted red potatoes. Read More
