Stuffed chicken is easy to make, fun and tasty and there are so many ways to change up the flavor. Find a new favorite dinner with these 11 delicious recipes!
We had a rainy, low-key weekend at home, and it was pretty lovely.
I did some painting and crafting with my daughter, some building and games with my son, and we all cuddled up for some movie nights. My kind of way to recharge!
But let's get right into the food.
I love stuffing some chicken breasts and making that part of a fun family dinner.
They add so much flavor to regular chicken breasts (that, yes, can sometimes get a little boring) and there are endless ways to change them up.
And often times, they are baked and that makes for a really hands-off meal once you get it prepped.
That’s my kind of weeknight dinner plan. 👍
Also, because they seem a little fancy, stuffed chicken can be a great meal to make for friends and family.
Basically, there’s something for everyone here!
One quick tip to help you get started…
Of course, follow the recipe and see what it says, but many stuffed chicken recipes call for butterflying the chicken first, to prepare it for stuffing.
