I love stuffing chicken with yummy ingredients!!
I have bought those chicken stuffed with broccoli and cheese in the freezer isle. They can be pretty expensive. So I decided to just make them myself. When things are homemade they always taste better and you can make the recipe the way you would want to eat it!
I like mine with Swiss cheese and broccoli. They could always be made ham, asparagus, stuffing or Swiss chard! Any one of those ingredients with cheese would make a great dinner.
Another awesome thing about making these at home is that they don't take too much time. The prep time took me about 30 mins! That means a yummy dinner in under an hour!
I made these while on vacation at my Mom's. Everyone really loved them. The melted Swiss cheese worked very well with the broccoli and the chicken was juicy. My family is very picky eaters and if this can satisfied them, then it can satisfied anyone.
The next time I make these I will try to use chicken cutlets, instead of chicken breast. That will cut my prep time in half. My husband loves asparagus. An asparagus and Gruyere cheese combination will be on our dinner table in the near future. I did make one mistake when making these though. I didn't cut my broccoli up enough. If my broccoli was smaller I could of stuffed the chicken a little easier and added more cheese. There can always be more cheese!! I can't wait to see where this recipe takes me!! The combinations are endless!
