Stuffed Chicken Breast

Chicken can get boring, sometimes doing something completely different can add some variety.

You can stuff chicken breasts with any of your favorite ingredients.

Fresh roasted red peppers offer a great flavor to this particular dish.

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breast, about 5 oz each
  • 8 large slices of roasted red peppers (From recipe posted March 30, 2013.)
  • 2 tbsp garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 10 Basil leaves chiffonade
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs, seasoned

Steps:

  • Take the chicken breast and butterfly it. To do that, cut it in half horizontally. Do not cut all the way through. Leave at least on end attached.

  • Season the chicken breast with salt and pepper.
  • Add the garlic to the chicken breasts.
  • Layer in the roasted red peppers, basil and mozzarella.

  • Fold the chicken back together, like a sandwich.
  • Carefully coat both sides of the chicken with the seasoned breadcrumbs.

  • Preheat a heavy bottom pan on medium low heat with oil. I used a Mediterranean oil, which was a mixture of olive oil and canola oil.
  • Cook the chicken on medium low heat until golden brown.
    • Because the chicken was thinly cut, each side should only take 4-6 minutes.

  • Flip the chicken over and cook the other side to a golden brown.

  • Serve with some of your favorite pasta. Here I tossed the pasta with garlic, Parmesan cheese, cream and black pepper.
