Broccoli Cheese-Stuffed Chicken


This cheesy broccoli-stuffed chicken is the perfect comfort food on a cold day. Thin, pre-sliced chicken cutlets save you time, but you can buy regular chicken breasts and slice them yourself if preferred.

Prep Time:

  • 1 ½ tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon paprika

  • 3 thin chicken breast cutlets

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 3 wedges spreadable garlic and herb cheese (such as The Laughing Cow®), softened

  • 1 cup frozen broccoli florets, thawed and finely chopped

  • ¼ cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

  • toothpicks

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Combine flour and paprika in a shallow bowl.

  2. Place chicken cutlets between two pieces of plastic wrap; pound with a mallet to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Season both sides with salt and pepper.

  3. Mash spreadable cheese with a fork in a bowl until creamy. Stir in broccoli and Cheddar until well combined. Spread mixture over the middle of each cutlet, then roll cutlets over filling and secure the edges with toothpicks. Dredge in flour mixture.

  4. Heat oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken into the skillet and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  5. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 14 to 16 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove toothpicks before serving.
