Stuffed Chicken Breasts


* Optional Substitution Note

Ingredients for 5 stuffed breasts:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 cup (red) onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeds removed, chopped into slices
  • sea salt & pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeds removed, chopped into slices
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped portobello mushroom caps (optional)
  • 30oz raw chicken breasts (five ~6oz chicken breasts)
  • Seasonings for each breast
    • pinch of sea salt & pepper
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 10 tablespoons reduced fat mozzarella, shredded (optional, but recommended)


Step 1

Fire up grill to 350F or set oven to 400F.

Step 2

Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat and add olive oil, garlic, onion and bell pepper. Saute for 1 minute, then toss in mushroom caps and squeeze in lemon. Cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes until the onions are caramelized and the edges of the pepper are seared. Season to taste with sea salt & pepper.

Step 3

Season chicken breasts. Slice the chicken down it’s side to create a “pocket.” Do NOT butterfly the chicken, cutting it from top to bottom; slice it more so in the middle in order to create a deep pocket.

Step 4

Stuff each chicken with grilled veggies and 2 tablespoons of cheese.

Step 5

Place the chicken on the hot grill and cook for 20 minutes (flipping halfway), or until the juices of the chicken run clear and it is completely white.

Step 6

Serve immediately while hot; but, you can also eat these while cold, like chicken pizza! These are hearty pieces of protein so chop if them up for more than 1 serving.

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
