This was wonderful! I made a slight variation on stuffing the breasts. They were thick, so I cut them in half vertically and laid one half in the pan. Then a layer of the stuffing, then another layer of chicken breasts, then more stuffing. Same idea, but a bit easier for me than cutting and filling a pocket. The aroma that filled the house while they were baking was incredible! There were some left so we reheated them another day and they were excellent. This is what I'm serving at my next dinner party, which will be soon - can't wait to have it again. Thanks for a superb recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Make a pocket in the chicken breasts the lightly salt and pepper. Saute mushrooms, onion, and red pepper in olive oil for 5 minutes. Mix this into a bowl with ricotta cheese and garlic powder. Mix well. Spoon mixture into chicken breasts. Try to have some remaining stuffing to place on top 5 minutes before chicken is done. I usually set it to high broil for the last 5 minutes to get a nice brown color.
