I love Cheesy Broccoli Stuffed Chicken, well I love most stuffed chickens (like this one). There is just something so decadent and almost fancy about it. The thing I love most is that it is really so easy to make, and you can stuff chicken with really almost anything. Yes…really almost anything.
Lets start with the Veggies… Broccoli & Peppers
For this stuffed chicken recipe I went with lower carb veggies. To keep it simple I chose broccoli and bell peppers. I love these 2 veggies together and they just look so pretty… I love pretty food.
If you wanted you could use asparagus, cauliflower, onions, spinach … really any veggie combo you wanted. I do recommend roasting them though, there is just something so good when veggies are roasted.
Now onto the filling
Once the veggies are roasted I combined them with cream cheese, shredded cheese (I used mexican blend) and some minced garlic to make this the cheesy broccoli filling. Then I stuffed it into the pockets I created int he chicken breasts. And yes, I stuffed them FULL.
If you wanted you could probably use 5 or 6 breasts and you would have plenty of filling, I just like them really stuffed full. In my opinion it adds to the decadence of the dish. One more thing I love about this broccoli filling is the color… it is just so pretty!!
PS… The filling is SOOOOO good you could use it as a low carb dip… it would be SOOOOO good!
