{Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Chicken}

Tonight I was looking for a "simple" recipe, but ended up opted for a stuffed chicken recipe, as I've never tried this before and I had most of the ingredients on hand. I substituted the cheese for what I had (mozzarella & pepper jack) and it only totaled up to one more point than the original recipe! I'm really loving She has some easy, fabulous recipes and you can tweak them to your liking. You should really check Gina out!

Tomorrow is weigh in day & I'm kind of excited because I'm 99% certain I'll hit the 5 pound mark. Wish me luck :D

Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken
Makes: 9 pieces • Size: 1 piece Points+: 4 pts


  • 3 (24 oz total) large chicken breast halves
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp water
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 cups broccoli floret, cooked, chopped small
  • 1oz pepper jack cheese, sliced into nine pieces
  • 1/2c (1oz) shredded part-skim mozzarella
  • salt
  • spray oil
  • toothpicks
Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, combine egg, water and a little salt. Beat with a fork to make an egg wash. Set aside. Fill a second bowl with breadcrumbs.

Slice chicken breast halves into thin cutlets. I usually get 3 thin cutlets out of one breast half. Pound them to make them thinner if you wish. This helps when you wrap the cutlets.

the ounce of pepper jack cheese into nine equal pieces. Place a 1 slice pepper jack cheese and 1/9th of the mozzarella in the center of the chicken and top with a little broccoli. Wrap chicken around to completely cover cheese, using toothpicks to secure. Season with a little salt.

Dip chicken into egg wash, then breadcrumbs. Spray cookie sheet with oil and place chicken on cookie sheet. Lightly spray chicken with oil and bake about 25 minutes, until cooked.
