Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Breast


I’m always trying different ways to liven up my chicken dishes. This stuffed chicken is so juicy and delicious. I used a little bit of my Piri Piri sauce (takes 7 days to make). I think you’re going to love it.

Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Breast
 
Here are the Ingredients:
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup fresh mozzarella, shredded
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • piri piri sauce, optional (see recipe)
Preheat oven at 350 degrees
 
Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat and saute mushrooms and onions for 10 minutes. Add garlic and thyme and cook for another minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Add cheese, salt and pepper and mix together. Cut a slit through the thickest portion of the breast and stuff each with equal amounts of mixture. Season with the remaining salt and pepper. Take eggs and mix them in a shallow dish, put flour in a shallow dish and bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Coat chicken with egg, then dip in flour. Re-dip in egg and dip in bread crumbs. Heat remaining olive oil in a large skillet and carefully brown chicken on both sides for 2 minutes. If available top each with one tablespoon of piri piri and put skillet in oven and bake for 20 minutes. Serve with your favorite vegetable.
