Cheesy Broccoli-Stuffed Chicken Breasts


I don't like eating soup during the summer months, so I created these stuffed chicken breasts with broccoli, cheese, and rice to satisfy a craving for broccoli and cheese soup!

Prep Time:
25 mins
Cook Time:
35 mins
Total Time:
1 hrs


  • nonstick cooking spray

  • 1 ½ cups finely chopped broccoli

  • 4 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, cubed

  • ½ cup cooked white rice

  • ¼ cup chopped onion

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon garlic granules

  • 4 (6 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • 1 tablespoon tropical poultry rub (such as Savory Spice® Gold Coast Poultry Rub)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Coat an 8-inch square casserole dish with cooking spray.

  2. Combine broccoli, Cheddar cheese, rice, and onion in a medium bowl. Add salt and garlic granules; mix well.

  3. Cut a deep pocket into each chicken breast with a sharp knife. Stuff each breast with broccoli-cheese mixture, place in the prepared casserole, and sprinkle with poultry rub. Cover casserole with aluminum foil.

  4. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
