Ingredients for Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast
You don't need a lot of ingredients to get this meal on your dinner table. First, you need some Boneless skinless chicken breast, then a little cream cheese, some broccoli, and finally some shredded cheddar. Some of my absolute favorites all mixed into one recipe!
First, you have to slice the chicken breast but make sure not to cut it out all the way through...just enough so you're able to get the filling in there. Season it with some salt and pepper and you're off and running.
Next, let's put the broccoli in the microwave for about 2 minutes to get it nice and soft. Then start chopping it into small pieces.
Once you chop the broccoli, throw both the cream cheese and cheddar in a large bowl and start mixing together. Hit it with some salt and pepper as needed.
Now start stuffing!!! Put as much of the filling in as you want. I like to make them overflow...but to each is own!

Now it’s time to sear my cheese stuffed chicken breast
Let's first put a little olive oil in a pan and brown them up for a few minutes on each side. I love using my cast iron pan here because it's so versatile and gives the chicken a really nice flavor.
Once I finish searing the chicken, I can throw this pan right in the oven and save myself from having to use another pan. Love it!
After a few minutes in the frying pan, we’re gonna bake it for about 15 to 20 minutes...make sure we cook the chicken through and get that cheese stuffed chicken breast oozing nicely!
To spice this up a bit, I made a little butter and wine sauce using some Pinot Grigio and some leftover chicken broth I had laying around.
Who says you can't have a little wine on a Monday?
Served it all over some brown rice and there you have it!
