How to Make Cheesy Garlic Stuffed Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Butterfly fillet the chicken breasts and lay flat in order to stuff them. (youtube.com/watch?v=PBSAEHnFaO4)
  2. Stuff inside with cheeses, garlic and sprinkle with sweet basil before closing up and securing with toothpicks or short skewers. (make sure you have secured the opening because the next step is to roll in butter and breadcrumbs)
  3. Melt the butter in a flat dish with sides so you can still roll the chicken in it, then roll in breadcrumbs.
  4. Place them in a baking dish and pour remaining butter, or melt a little more, over the chicken and bake at 350 degrees for about an hour.
  5. Make sure to pull out all the toothpicks or skewers before serving. (I like to use the short skewers because they dont get in the way and they are easier to take out once the ckicken is ready)
