- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped mushrooms and garlic, and sauté until the mushrooms are tender and any liquid has evaporated.
- Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, thyme, salt, and pepper. This will be your flavorful stuffing.
- With a sharp knife, carefully cut a pocket into each chicken breast.
- Spoon the mushroom stuffing generously into each pocket.
- Season the outside of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
- In the same skillet, heat a bit more olive oil. Sear the stuffed chicken breasts until they are golden brown on the outside.
- Transfer the chicken to a baking dish and place it in the preheated oven. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
- Once done, remove from the oven and let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving.
