This broccoli and cheese stuffed chicken is a hit every time. I took my broccoli casserole and changed things up slightly to make it work as a filling for chicken breasts. Seriously good and oh so cheesy.
4 chicken breasts
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt divided
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon onion powder
1 ¼ cup chopped broccoli
4 ounces cream cheese softened
¼ cup grated Parmesan
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 clove garlic minced
4 slices bacon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut a pocket into the side of each chicken breast. Drizzle chicken with olive oil.
Add the paprika, 1/2 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, and onion powder to a small bowl and stir to combine. Sprinkle evenly over both sides of the chicken.
Add cream cheese, Parmesan, mayonnaise, garlic, and remaining ½ teaspoon of salt to a small mixing bowl and stir well to combine. Stir in the broccoli.
Spoon the cheese mixture into each chicken breast evenly.
Slice each piece of bacon in half and wrap each piece of chicken with 2 pieces of bacon.
Place the chicken breasts in a 9x13 baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
Place pan under the broiler to crisp the bacon more, if desired.
