Cheese and Herb Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Ingredients :

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Préparations :

  1. Prepare the Chicken Breasts:
    • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • Using a sharp knife, carefully cut a pocket into the side of each chicken breast, making sure not to cut all the way through.
  2. Prepare the Cheese Filling:
    • In a medium bowl, mix together the mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, cream cheese, parsley, basil, minced garlic, oregano, salt, and black pepper until well combined.
  3. Stuff the Chicken Breasts:
    • Spoon the cheese mixture into each chicken breast pocket, filling them generously.
    • Use toothpicks to secure the openings if necessary.
  4. Cook the Chicken Breasts:
    • Heat the olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
    • Sear the stuffed chicken breasts for about 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
    • Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
  5. Prepare the Sauce:
    • Remove the chicken breasts from the skillet and set them aside, covering them with foil to keep warm.
    • In the same skillet, add the chicken broth and heavy cream, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
    • Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly.
  6. Serve:
    • Return the chicken breasts to the skillet and spoon the sauce over the top.
    • Garnish with additional chopped parsley if desired.
    • Serve the stuffed chicken breasts warm, with the creamy sauce drizzled over them.
