This double stuffed chicken recipe uses chicken breasts which are stuffed with both Cheddar and cream cheeses, then drenched with a garlic-lemon-butter sauce. It will add class to any dinner party and is still easy enough for a busy week night.. It is one of my husband’s favorite chicken recipes.
This easy recipe is ready in just over 30 minutes and is a delight to behold on the plate when you cut into the chicken breast parcels.
I love the combination of lemon and garlic in a recipe. It adds a nice bit of tartness that is offset by the bright citrus flavor. (For another great recipe with this combination, check out this recipe for garlic lemon chicken with a mustard herb sauce.)
Double Stuffed Chicken with Lemon and Garlic.
This recipe might seem complicated but is actually quite easy to prepare. The chicken breasts are just butterflied to create a pocket in them and then both slices of cheddar cheese and thin slices from a block of cream cheese gets added to the pocket.
Once you have the cavity filled, the parcels are coated with a combination of Romano cheese and bread crumbs.
The sauce is made in just a few minutes by melting the butter and adding some lemon juice, lemon zest and garlic salt and paprika and drizzled over the chicken breasts.
Into the oven for 30 minutes and that is all there is to the recipe.
