Kittencal's Cream Cheese-Stuffed Chicken Breast

"If you are a garlic-lover such as myself you may want to mix in 1 tablespoon fresh finely minced garlic or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder when melting the butter --- plan ahead the rolled breasts need to be refrigerated for a minimum of 3 hours or up to 24 hours before breading, this will allow for easier handling while breading and firm up the cream cheese mixture --- these are very good!"

directions

  • Pound the chicken breasts to slightly flat between two pieces of waxed paper or plastic wrap.
  • In a bowl combine all filling ingredients until very well combined.
  • Spread the filling mixture onto each of the chicken breasts; starting at the short end roll up each breast, don't worry about covering the whole breast with the filling (if desired you may secure each breast with a long toothpick but it is not necessary as after the breasts are chilled they will hold together).
  • Place the breasts on a large plate or platter; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for minimum 3 hours or up to 24 hours (the longer the better).
  • Place the melted butter in bowl.
  • In a shallow bowl combine the breadcrumbs with Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and seasoned salt (if using).
  • Gently dip each rolled breast firstly into melted butter then coat in the breadcrumb mixture.
  • Place the coated breasts seam-side down into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish spacing slightly apart.
  • Set oven to 375°F (set oven rack to bottom position).
  • Bake for about 30 minutes (some of the cream cheese mixture might spill out while cooking, just scoop it onto the plate when serving).
  • If using sprinkle finely grated mozzarella or cheddar cheese onto and around the breasts and return to oven for about 3 minutes to melt.

  1. I absolutely loved this chicken! If you're in a pinch and want a similar flavor FASTER, spread a soft garlic and herb cheese such as aloute or rondole in the chicken rather than making the filling.
     
  2. WOW!!!!! This is an awesome recipe. Made it tonight and I wouldn't change a thing. My husband and my daughter were fighting for the leftovers! This will definitely go into my own personal favorites recipe book.
