One Pot Italian Creamy Stuffed Chicken

Melissa Jo

Ingredients
  

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 6 thick slices of mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup of sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • 1 cup of chopped spinach
  • 6 leaves of basil
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of butter

For the Creamy Garlic Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup of chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup of pecorino romano cheese
  • 4 cloves of garlic chopped

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).
  • Slice each chicken breast horizontally at the thickest part, but not all the way through. Open up the chicken breasts like a book.
  • Stuff each chicken breast with 2 basil leaves, mozzarella slices, chopped spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes.
  • Season the chicken breasts with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Carefully seal the chicken breasts closed using three toothpicks, ensuring the filling is secure.
  • Heat an oven-safe skillet on the stovetop over medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon of oil from the sun-dried tomato jar, and one tablespoon of butter.
  • Sear the stuffed chicken breasts in the skillet until they are browned on each side, approximately 2-3 minutes per side.
  • Once browned, remove the chicken breasts from the skillet and set them aside on a plate.
  • Wipe out most of the oil from the skillet, leaving about a tablespoon.
  • In a bowl, prepare the creamy garlic sauce. Add the heavy cream, chicken broth, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, chopped garlic, and pecorino romano cheese. Whisk the ingredients together until well combined.
  • Return the seared chicken breasts, and the creamy garlic sauce to the skillet, pouring the creamy garlic sauce over them.
  • Place the skillet in the preheated oven and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is bubbling.
  • Once done, remove the skillet from the oven (careful, it will be hot!). Allow the chicken to rest for a few minutes before serving.
  • Serve the One Pot Creamy Italian Stuffed Chicken with a side of pasta, rice, or broccoli. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Be cautious when slicing the chicken breasts to avoid cutting all the way through. This ensures the filling stays intact during cooking.
  • Use an oven-safe skillet or a skillet with a removable handle
