Cheesy Herb Stuffed Chicken is stuffed with mushrooms and cheese and coated with a delicious herb blend. This will amaze you!
Has anyone else gotten into the chicken breast rut lately? We love the versatility of chicken breasts, but let’s be honest, they’re not the tastiest cut of meat. In order to really cook them, they need a lot of added fat and flavor. Now let’s be honest, this recipe will totally do it. Between the gooey cheese, mushrooms, and amazing herb medley, this is one recipe you’ll come back to again and again.
How to Serve Cheesy Herb Stuffed Chicken Stuffed Chicken:
There are a few different ways to stuff chicken. The first, used in this recipe, involves cutting a pocket on the side of a chicken breast with a sharp knife. For this you will need a fairly thick chicken breast. With the knife parallel to the cutting board, insert the tip into the thickest part of the breast and continue cutting lengthwise. In some stores, you can have your butcher do this for you at the meat counter.
The second way is to butterfly your chickens. In some stores, you can buy chicken pre-cut, or you can have the butcher do it for you at the meat counter. To do it yourself, use a sharp knife to cut the chicken in half so that it spreads out like a butterfly’s wings. You will need to be careful not to cut all the way through to keep the parts intact.
If you want to keep as much of the filling as possible inside the chicken breast and are concerned that some of the filling will fall out, use a toothpick to hold the opening together and keep more of the filling inside. Remember to remove the toothpick before serving.
You can use your favorite shredded plant-based cheese and sticks of plant-based butter for a dairy-free recipe.
Storage and Reheating Instructions:
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat in oven preheated to 350°F until heated through.
