Baked Stuffed Boneless Chicken Breasts

Recipe by Hag chef




  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Rinse and pat dry the chicken breasts.
  • Trim any fat around the edges.
  • If you wish, remove the white tendon running through the tenderloins.
  • Place the chicken breasts 1 at a time between sheets of wax paper and gently pound with a mallet until about 3/8 inch thick.
  • Season with salt and ground black pepper.
  • Heat unsalted butter in a small skillet over medium high heat until the foam begins to subside.
  • Add onions and cook, stirring, until tender but not brown, about 5 minutes: Stir in minced garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Remove the mixture to a bowl and stir in bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, rosemary, sage, salt and pepper.
  • Stir in the chicken stock.
  • The stuffing should be just moist enough to hold together in a crumbly ball when squeezed firmly in the hand.
  • Do not over moisten.
  • Taste and adjust the seasonings.
  • Lightly oil a 13 x 9-inch baking pan.
  • Place 1/4 cup stuffing on the center of the underside of each breast and press lightly to compact it.
  • Bring the top and bottom flaps of the chicken up over the stuffing, slightly overlapping the ends, then fold up the sides to enclose the stuffing completely.
  • Lay the packets seam side down in the pan and brush with olive oil.
  • Season with Salt and ground black pepper to taste.
  • Bake until the chicken is lightly browned and feels firm when pressed, 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
