How to Make the Perfect Stuffed Chicken Breast

Anything stuffed is a plus in my home. Anything cheesy is a plus in my home. Anything crispy is a plus in my home…you get the point. Chicken breasts stuffed with ham & cheese and baked to crisp perfection, well, it is delicious. I like to use this dish when I have a lot of leftovers. The ham was thick slices from a honey ham I recently baked. There is always some sort of cheese in the fridge and chicken in the freezer. This was perfect served with a side of rice and spinach but anything you have on hand will do.

Delicious Rating: I remember the first time I stuffed & rolled a flank steak it felt so intimidating to me to do such a large feat! It turned out great and there wasn’t really anything to it. Likewise, don’t be intimidated when cooking up a recipe that is not in your usual cooking repertoire. You will find that this is a delicious easy recipe where you can combine different meats or cheeses to stuff your chicken with creating a new dinner dish! Let me know what you try!

Tips for cooking stuffed chicken breasts

Stuffed chicken breasts are a delicious and easy way to impress your guests. Here are a few tips to ensure that your dish is a success:

– Choose chicken breasts that are of similar size so that they cook evenly.
– If you are using a recipe that calls for raw chicken, be sure to cook the stuffing separately before adding it to the chicken. This will ensure that the chicken is cooked through and the stuffing is not raw.
– When stuffing the chicken breasts, be careful not to overstuff them. The stuffing should be loose and not packed tightly into the chicken.
– Bake the chicken in a preheated oven until the chicken is cooked through and the stuffing is golden brown.
– Let the chicken rest for a few minutes before cutting into it. This will allow the juices to redistribute and make for a juicier and more flavorful dish.
