Stuffed Italian Style Chicken Recipe



There are so many ways to make a great stuffing for chicken this is one of my favorites. Creamy, spicy and a great way to impress your guests! Biggest bonus is how easy it is to make and it taste great plus so impressive. The filling is a fabulous combination of flavors and then a little added heat to give it character. 




Stuffed Italian Style Chicken Recipe

4 Chicken breasts boneless sliced with pocket
3 Garlic cloves minced or use granulated garlic
1/2 cup whipped any kind of Cream cheese (mascarpone, regular or any spreadable kind)
4 Pepperoncini
2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
salt, pepper to taste
pinch of red pepper flakes
1 cup Arugula
Italian flavored bread crumbs
olive oil
Prosciutto thinly sliced for each piece of chicken

Optional idea:  add grated cheese and or shredded mozzarella cheese on top or mix pesto in with the cream cheese before stuffing chicken



Split open the chicken breasts to make a pocket.  In a bowl mix 3 cloves of minced garlic into cream cheese. Add parsley, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and (pesto around 3 teaspoons) if using. Spread in the center of the chicken. Add prosciutto then arugula on top. Place each one with a pepperoncini. Place each one in a greased pan.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with bread crumbs. I sprinkle with grating cheese or shredded mozzarella. Bake on 350 degree preheated oven until the juices run clear around 35 to 40 minutes.
