Sometimes I just can't come up with a new way to prepare chicken. But today was different!
I butterflied two chicken breasts to create a pocket in each:
In a small bowl I mixed 1/2 teaspoon of 2 spices,
2 T cheese, 1 T chopped green pepper, 1 T chopped tomato, 1 T chopped onion, 1 crushed garlic, 4 fresh basil leaves cut into ribbons and some fresh parsley. I drizzled a bit of olive oil over all of it….
..and gave it a stir:
I stuffed each breast with 1/2 of the mixture:
I added a few more spices on the top of the breasts:
And then I threw them in the oven hoping for the best :-)
I served it with roasted asparagus and stuffing. I like to use an ice cream scoop to serve stuffing - today I used a mini scoop:
I have to say it certainly was tasty!
I will make this again, for sure!
