Broccoli Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast is filled with a simple broccoli cheese mixture, seared in a skillet, then baked to perfection.
So here’s the deal. My kids are not your average children when it comes to food.
I always knew they were more willing to try foods, but when my 6 year old daughter came home from school, saw chopped broccoli on my cutting board and immediately asked if she could eat it… well, that’s just not normal… is it?
Then, when I was making this recipe, she was right by my side, super excited that I was not only stuffing this chicken with broccoli, but also red bell peppers.
She’s not the only one of my kids who gets excited about veggies. I guess I should chalk this one up to a parenting win.
So next time my kids do something completely embarrassing like farting in the middle of church, I’ll just remember that at least they eat their vegetables.
But seriously, this chicken is so easy to make!
Tips for making this Broccoli Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast:
- Chop your broccoli florets nice and small so they can all fit inside the chicken
- Pick large chicken breasts
- Don’t cut your chicken breast all the way through, just enough to create a pocket
- If you don’t have an oven safe skillet, you can sear the chicken in a skillet first, then transfer to an oven safe dish
