Super Easy 4-ingredient Stuffed Chicken

Sometimes you need an easy, go-to meal that doesn't have a zillion ingredients. A super tasty, simple, recipe that can be served to important guests or to your family...or even just you! Here's one that I have tweaked to be super healthy and delicious (I've made it three times in two weeks!)

4-Ingredient Simple Stuffed Chicken


+ Four boneless, skinless chicken breasts

+ 1 sprig worth of fresh rosemary finely chopped

+ 4 tbsp goat cheese or feta crumbles

+ 4 tbsp finely chopped Canadian bacon


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Combined rosemary, cheese and Canadian bacon in a small bowl. use a sharp knife to cut a pocket in the thickest part of each chicken breast. Stuff the chicken breasts with 2 tablespoons cheese, Canadian bacon and rosemary mixture. Secure the "pocket" closed with a couple of toothpicks. Heat a skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium high heat and place the chicken in it on both sides for 2 minutes. Transfer the chicken onto a sprayed cookie sheet (or foil on a cookie sheet for easy clean up) and cook in the 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle. Each chicken breast is approximately 285 calories...and super delicious!

Serve with a favorite asparagus!
