Chicken breasts stuffed with mozzarella, spinach, and sun dried tomatoes – baked to absolute crisp-tender cheesy perfection!

Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken - Chicken breasts stuffed with mozzarella, spinach, and sun dried tomatoes - baked to absolute crisp-tender cheesy perfection!

I realized that I have a ton of chicken thigh recipes, a few chicken breast recipes, and a couple of one pan chicken recipes but none that are stuffed!

The craziness, right?

So to bring that madness to an end, I have the cheesiest stuffed chicken recipe for you today (along with a fabulous giveaway below), packed with fresh baby spinach and sun-dried tomatoes, and then coated with breadcrumbs for that extra crunch.

Now I did use Panko for the first time around, but after testing this out, Italian breadcrumbs definitely takes the win for a baked chicken recipe.

Yes, this is completely baked from start to finish, and it’s just so stinking easy to whip up.

Simply butterfly your chicken, stuff, coat and place in the oven. Prep time is in less than 15 minutes!

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 2 cups baby spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup sun dried tomatoes halves
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 cup Italian style bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves, chiffonade

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9×13 baking dish or coat with nonstick spray.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper, to taste. Cut each breast horizontally to, but not through, the other side to create a pocket.
  3. Lift top flap of chicken pocket, arranging cheese, spinach and tomatoes.
  4. Working one at a time, dip chicken into the eggs, then dredge in bread crumbs, pressing to coat.
  5. Place chicken onto the prepared baking dish and bake until the chicken is completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, about 25-30 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately, garnished with basil, if desired.
