I don't like eating soup seating the summer months, so I created this stuffed chicken breast to satisfy a craving for broccoli and cheese soup.

Instructions Checklist

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

  • 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.

  • 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).

This recipe came out very tasty. For those wondering why there is not soup, it has no soup because it was created as a substitute for soup, as is clearly written in the description. It says 6 servings because there is a combined total of 24 ounces of chicken, and a serving of chicken is approximately 3-4 oz. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Very bland. Definitely needs more flavor for the stuffing. My family says “thumbs down” and asked I not make it again. Read More

To the reviewer that is looking for the "soup " there is no soup. It's just supposed to remind you of broccoli cheddar soup. It's a broccoli cheddar stuffing but no soup people. Read her statement at the top. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

I didn't cube the cheese. I used grated cheese cuz that's what I had and FINELY chopped broccoli . Instead of rice I used frozen riced cauliflower . Next time I will add some salt, pepper and any kind of garlic to the inside of the chicken breast. It came out sooo moist. This is a recipe you can play with and change to your tastes. Read More

The recipe is Very good..i was confused when I saw reviews that said they saw six chicken breast. The recipe calls for 4- 6 oz chicken breast. I added one more chicken breasts just because we are major Chicken Lovers. Very very good recipe. thank you. I only changed one thing and that was the cheese and we used a white sharp cheddar cheese Read More
