Ingredients

To prepare chicken

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter divided
  • ½ cup shallots sliced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic finely chopped
  • 8 oz brown mushrooms sliced
  • 4 whole chicken breasts boneless skinless
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 8 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
  • ½ tsp salt more or less to taste
  • ½ tsp black pepper more or less to taste

To prepare sauce

  • 1 tbsp. garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese shredded
  • 2 tbsps. parsley chopped
  • ½ teaspoon red chili flakes more or less to taste

Instructions

  • Heat a medium skillet over medium heat, add a tablespoon of butter and add shallots. Cook for 2 minutes and then add the minced garlic and mushrooms and cook further for 5 minutes. Keep it aside.
  • Season the chicken breasts with Italian seasonings, salt and pepper. Cut the chicken breast lengthwise to create a small pocket. Stuff the chicken pocket with mozzarella slices and a spoonful of sauteed mushroom mixture and seal the chicken with a toothpick.
  • Heat a large skillet with remaining butter. Add the chicken gently and sear the chicken to golden on both sides for about 8-10 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.
  • To the same skillet add garlic and flour and cook for a minute. Pour the chicken broth and heavy cream and let it simmer for 3-5 minutes.
  • Add the remaining mushroom mixtures if there is any and add parmesan cheese along with the chicken breasts.
  • Cover and cook the chicken along with the sauce for 10-12 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted.
  • Garnish the chicken with chopped parsley and serve while it is still warm.

Notes

  • When cutting a pocket into the chicken be careful not to cut through the other side.
  • You can use provolone or even swiss cheese in place of the mozzarella cheese.  
  • Not a fan of mushrooms? Substitute with your favorite vegetable. 
  • Add spinach to the filling for even more goodness. 
  • After stuffing the chicken, use a toothpick to seal it shut. 
  • Replace the flour in the sauce with gluten free flour to make this meal gluten free.
  • Freshly grated parmesan will melt better.
  • Add a tablespoon of dijon mustard to the sauce for a fun twist. 
  • Omit the red pepper flakes if no heat is desired. 
  • Always check for doneness using a meat thermometer. The temperature should read 165 degrees F. 
  • Remove the toothpicks before serving.
