4 chicken breasts




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. Remove any excess fat.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut a large pocket into the chicken breasts, cutting horizontally and lengthwise into the chicken, but not cutting through the back or sides.
  • Place the vegetables into a small bowl, add 1/2 cup of cheese and toss to mix. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions and put into the chicken pockets.
  • Use seasoned salt to sprinkle evenly over both sides of the chicken pieces.
  • In a small bowl, mix the Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns with 1 cup cheese. Use half of the mix to cover the bottom of a baking dish large enough to accommodate the 4 chicken breasts with no excess space between or around them. Lay the chicken breasts on top of the hash browns, then, using the remaining hash brown mixture, patting equal amounts onto the tops of each piece of chicken.
  • Bake 45 minutes, covering loosely with foil tent during the last 10-12 minutes, or when nicely browned. Turn oven to broil, remove foil, sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese over the top and broil until cheese is melted, about 3-4 minutes. Serve either 1 piece each to 4 people, or cut in half and serve to 8.

  1. Turned out great! Baked it for 1 hour and 10 minutes on 375F ... 40minutes was way too short a time for a whole stuffed chicken breast to cook. Added garlic, spinach, red pepper and a combination of cheddar and parmesan for my stuffing. Would make this again as it was delicious and easy peasy!!
  2. Wow!!! Awesome recipe!! Great use of only 5 ingredients!
