easy stuffed chicken bake

A simple stuffed chicken breast that is quick to prepare and doesn’t dirty many dishes either!


  • 4 medium sized chicken breasts (about 150-200g each)
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1/2 red capsicum
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 tablespoon Bolognse herbs (I get it from supermarket, if you can’t find it use Italian herb mix)
  • 1/4 cup passata (tomato purée that comes in a jar in the pasta section)
  • 3/4 cup grated cheese (I used a blend of motserella, Parmaseab and tasty but any would do)


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C
  2. Line one tray with baking paper
  3. Cut zucchini is half length ways and then cut into thin pieces (so you end up with semi circles)
  4. Cut red capsicum into strips
  5. Cut onion into thin slices
  6. Place chicken breasts onto baking paper
  7. Using a sharp knife, make slices in chicken but do not slice right through. Make slices about every 2cm
  8. Into each chicken slice, place one piece onion, one zucchini and a couple red capsicums
  9. Sprinkle chicken with herbs
  10. Pour passata on chicken
  11. Sprinkle with cheese
  12. Bake for 30 mins (cut through one piece of chicken to check it is cooked through)
  13. Serve with a lovely salad 


You can use any veggies you like as stuffing spinach and ricotta or tomato and zucchini would work well

Whilst the Oven is on, why not make some sweet potato chips, roast pumpkin, stuffed mushrooms and/or zucchini chips at the same time to accompany the chicken
