Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken recipe pictures Growing up my Mom used to make chicken kiev every once and awhile. As we got older, everybody grew to not like this dinner all that much and she hasn’t made it in years. I actually liked chicken kiev…but I think it had more to do with the full layer of breading than anything else.

 I don’t think this can technically be considered chicken kiev…but it’s similar to what I remember growing up so this is what I’m comparing it to. Chicken kiev police stay away!

Chicken is by far the meat I eat most often. I’m not into red meat and pork is good…but only once every couple of months. Chicken is good several times a week in my books so I always welcome new ways to cook chicken.

This one is super easy to prepare and I love that there’s a cheesy broccoli filling. The panko crust is very light so it doesn’t leave you feeling heavy when you’re done. We served our Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken with yesterday’s glazed carrots (oh em gee) and it was a perfect meal.

    Oh this is a neat way to serve chicken! I always sort of shied away from chicken cordon bleu (the closest I’ve ever had to chicken kiev I think) because it was so heavy, but this looks delicious without being overwhelming :)
