Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • 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.

    My family really enjoyed this chicken dish. I did morph it a bit though. I omitted the mushrooms (not fond of fungus lol), and used frsh garlic. Instead of chicken breasts, I used chicken tenders. I put a layer of the tenders, followed by a layer of the ricotta mixture, a layer of tenders . . .when it was almost done, I toasted up some seasoned breadcrumbs in butter and topped the ricotta mixture with it. Baked it for another five or six minutes until the crumb topping got nice and brown.

    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.

    I omited the mushrooms and used fresh garlic and some minced ham. The filling had terrific flavor, even my toddler loved it.

    Another great chicken idea! I left out the mushrooms, but I loved the filling anyway. The onions, peppers and cheese were a great combo and I'm sure the mushrooms woudl have been great too...I just don't like them! :) Thanks for sharing an easy delicious dinner! Made fore PAC fall 09.

I found a love of cooking after I moved to Orlando to get married, everynight I like to make something new, I was never a big fan of leftovers. I know when we have children I will love leftovers but for now I will take advantage of the time to develop my kitchen skills. It is such a great feeling to finally grasp the concept of cooking, what goes with what and then being able to alter recipes to what you like. RecipeZaar is the best. This is my favorite hobby now, I get such pleasure out of taking the time to make a great meal and I have all of you to thank.
