Food: Stuffed Chicken Breasts

This recipe is seriously easier than you would think and definitely doable to have dinner ready for 6:00 when you get home at 5:00! It is loosely based on a Kraft recipe I saw years ago and can no longer find the link to online!

You will need:

4 Chicken Breasts

Salt & Pepper

75 g of Goat Cheese (room temp)

1 jar of Roasted Red Peppers (sliced into strips)

Kraft Italian Dressing

1 container of Cherry Tomatoes

Optional: 1/4 lb thinly sliced Prosciutto

DIRECTIONS

1) Preheat the Oven to 400 degrees F

2) Mix the goat cheese & sliced roasted red peppers in a bowl

3) Slice the cherry tomatoes in half and keep aside.

4) Lightly season the chicken breasts with some salt & pepper. Then slice the breast through the middle but do not go all the way through. You simply want to make a pocket

5) Stuff those chicken breasts with your goat cheese/red pepper mix

6) Lightly coat them with the Kraft Italian Dressing

7) Stick them in a pan with the cherry tomatoes surrounding them and bake for 30 mins. I am always paranoid about chicken and usually cut through the breast at this point to make sure they are cooked!

ALTERNATIVELY:

After lightly coating the breast in Kraft dressing, wrap each one in prosciutto and bake the same. Your family will think you’re a professional chef!

In the summer we barbecue these and they are extra delicious (as only a barbecue can make food)

*We must have been starving when I started doing the prep for the post – I don’t have any pictures of the finished product!

Enjoy with a glass of your favourite wine! (Pinot noir for me)
