An easy stuffed chicken breast that is quick to prepare and doesn’t dirty many dishes either! This simple cheesy chicken bake is one for the whole family to enjoy.

?Serves: 4
? Prep:  mins    Cook : 30 mins

Ingredients

  • 4 medium sized chicken breasts (about 150-200g each)
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1/2 red capsicum
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 tablespoon Bolognese 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 (we used a blend of mozzarella, parmesan and tasty but any will do)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C
  2. Line one tray with baking paper
  3. Cut zucchini in 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 slits every 2cm across in the top of the chicken, be careful to not slice right through
  8. Into each chicken slice, place one slice of onion, one slice of zucchini and 2 strips of red capsicum
  9. Sprinkle chicken with herbs
  10. Pour passata on top of chicken
  11. Sprinkle with cheese
  12. Bake for 30 minutes (cut through one piece of chicken to check it is cooked through)
  13. Serve with a lovely salad

Notes

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 easy stuffed chicken.
