This cheesy broccoli chicken is the perfect comfort food on a cold day. By buying thin-sliced chicken cutlets, you save yourself the work of slicing them yourself, however feel free to cut regular-sized chicken breasts if you prefer. Slice in half horizontally, then pound thin to about a 1/4-inch thickness. Feel free to change up the flavor of The Laughing Cow® cheese for variety.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Pound chicken cutlets to 1/4-inch thickness between two pieces of plastic wrap. Sprinkle both sides of cutlets with salt and pepper. Set aside.

  • Mash cheese wedges with a fork in a small bowl and stir to a creamy consistency. Add broccoli and shredded Cheddar cheese and stir to combine.

  • Spread broccoli filling evenly over the middle of each cutlet. Start from one end, roll cutlets up and secure edges with toothpicks.

  • Combine flour and paprika in a shallow bowl. Dredge chicken rolls in the mixture.

  • Heat olive oil in a oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken rolls into skillet and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn over and brown the other side for an additional 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Place skillet into the preheated oven and bake until chicken is no longer pink in the center and 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 and serve.

It was delicious... I had to use Alouette Garlic and herb cheese, after it was finished baking I placed on a bed of rice... Next time I make this recipe I think I will just slice the chicken breast and stuffed with mixture instead of rolled it... thank you for the recipe! Read More

I adjusted the recipe for 2 ppl...and I didn't have the butter with garlic and herbs so I melted butter with a little garlic powder and minced garlic.... ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! I had left over filling so I made white rice and mixed the filling in with the white rice Read More

It’s simple and tastes good. I think the seasoning could be improved on but the time and instructions were spot on. Read More

This is a really good recipe. I prepared it as written, and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, I found it a little salty for my taste. Next time I will not salt the breasts prior to browning. The cheeses have enough salt. Definitely a keeper! Read More
