Chicken can be stretched a very long way to make any  meal be a bit more flavorful and filling. And, if you have been shopping lately it also takes less affect on your wallet. Here are just a few of our chicken recipes. Hope you can get creative and enjoy creating some of your own too!

mediterrenean stuffed chicken (2)

Mediterranean Stuffed chicken

You will need 4 Chicken breasts, 1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes, 3 tsp garlic, 1 tsp. orange zest, 1/2 cup fresh basil, and a block of mozzarella cheese


Grate your orange into zest and set aside. Slice your cheese into slices (I used 2 slices per piece of chicken) and set aside. Put all other ingredients on a cutting board and chop fine. Add the orange zest and mix together.

IMG_4511Slice your Chicken breasts in order to fully stuff. Do not cut all the way through. Place on a covered cookie sheet.

IMG_4512After your chicken is opened stuff your filling evenly into each breast.

IMG_4513Place your cheese on top of fillings and close each piece of chicken.

IMG_4514Use toothpicks to secure edges. Drizzle olive oil over each piece and salt and pepper. Bake at 450 for 30-35 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.


I served this with Crockpot mashed potatoes, homemade Crescent rolls, and sautéed green beans with red onions.


Another easy stuffed chicken recipe is simply the amount of chicken breasts you need and prepared stuffing. Simply stuff the breasts with stuffing and sprinkle salt, pepper, garlic, and a touch of olive oil on the tops before baking at 350 til done!
