Stuffed chicken recipes that are easy to prepare include chicken stuffed with cheddar cheese, chicken stuffed with pepperoni and cheese, Mediterranean stuffed chicken, garlic pesto stuffed chicken and chicken with spinach stuffing. Easy stuffed chicken recipes typically use skinless boneless chicken breasts, which are partially sliced to form a pocket.
Cheddar cheese makes a quick and easy stuffing ingredient, and all that is required is cutting a block of cheese into four thick slices to place in the middle of each chicken breast. Roll the chicken breast up to enclose the cheese, and place the breasts in a pan with the seam side down. Brush the chicken with butter before baking for 30 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Another simple recipe combines 12 slices of turkey pepperoni with 1/2 cup part-skim Mozzarella cheese, which melts inside the chicken. Stuff the turkey pepperoni and cheese into chicken breast pockets, and spray them with cooking oil. Sprinkle Italian bread crumbs over the chicken pieces, and bake them for 20 to 25 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mediterranean stuffed chicken uses five simple ingredients, including feta cheese, red bell pepper and kalamata olives. Alternatively, create a healthy Mediterranean filling using a package of thawed frozen spinach combined with leek and seasonings such as red pepper flakes. Make simple Italian-inspired stuffed chicken by combining goat cheese with roasted garlic pesto and a little pepper.
