Parmesan and Herb Stuffed Chicken

How about a nice, easy and light dinner tonight? We won’t stop there, we need to add deeelicious!

Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite easy dinners, Parmesan and Herb Stuffed Chicken! It’s a grilled chicken breast that’s stuffed with a mixture of fresh grated Parmesan cheese and herbs.

 Well, my school started this week. You remember the first day of class when you get the syllabus and listen to the teacher go over all the assignments that are due through the semester…as your eyes widen and you realize you have a hard time breathing. Thinking “holy cow, how am I ever going to get it all done?”

Yeap, that was my Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday! Now, I’m sorting through due dates and getting them on all my calendars. I have several calendars just in case. (I’m not crazy, really!)

So, you will be seeing a lot of easy and delicious recipe from me this fall because I don’t have as much time to spend in the kitchen during school. But please, don’t worry, I have time on weekends, so you WILL still be seeing what you are used to seeing on Will Cook For Smiles.

This wonderful and easy Italian chicken dinner is one of my go-to recipes for a busy week night. Parmesan and Herb Stuffed Chicken is  full of flavor and can me made in a flash.

You may have noticed that I don’t use a lot of spices and spice mixes in my cooking. I’ve, somewhat, adopted a French cooking philosophy of using herbs instead of extra spices to give food its flavor.

Parmesan and Herb Stuffed Chicken

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbs of minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tbs of minced fresh basil
  • 1/2 tbs of minced fresh dill weed
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbs of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine minced herbs, grated garlic clove and some salt and pepper. Mix well. Set aside a little bit of herb mixture for rubbing the chicken.
  2. Add 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese and mix until evenly distributed. Set aside.
  3. Butterfly the chicken breasts: lay the chicken breast flat on the cutting board, slice the breast in half widthwise right in the center, (DO NOT cut all the way though,) cut almost to the other edge.
  4. Pack the chicken breasts with the herb mixture, half the mixture in each chicken breast. Press the chicken together, tight. (Repeat with the other chicken breast.)
  5. Preheat some oil in the skillet on medium heat. Rub the remaining herb mixture over the stuffed chicken breasts. Cook on medium heat until completely done. (about 7-10 minutes of each side, depending on the size of the chicken breast.)
  6. Top off with remaining Parmesan cheese and serve.

    • Thank you so much, Teresa!
      I actually grow my own herbs in a little garden on my balcony. They are easy to grow inside too but my cat eats them in I bring them in :)

  14. I love chicken and your stuffed chicken sounds amazing!

  15. This looks delicious Lyuba, and I’m definitely going to try your way of “stuffing” chicken. My way always comes out messy and not looking pretty. Great healthy meal option, pinning. :)

  19. I think this would be such a fabulous weeknight dinner! Thanks for linking up with What’s Cookin’ Wednesday!

    This was a very easy recipe to make and delicious. I tried this recipe for the first time tonight while having company over and it was very very good. My guess actually asked if they could take the leftovers home! I didn’t have chicken breast so I used boneless skinless chicken thighs. They turned out fabulous! Just baked in the oven for 35 minutes at 375. Yummy.

  21. I prepared this dish for dinner tonight. Not only was it easy, it tasted fabulous. The fresh herbs made it taste light and flavorful. My husband really liked it, so this is definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

  22. I made this tonight, was easy and among the best chicken I’ve had! Thanks!
