Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. 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.
  3. Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, thyme, salt, and pepper. This will be your flavorful stuffing.
  4. With a sharp knife, carefully cut a pocket into each chicken breast.
  5. Spoon the mushroom stuffing generously into each pocket.
  6. Season the outside of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  7. In the same skillet, heat a bit more olive oil. Sear the stuffed chicken breasts until they are golden brown on the outside.
  8. 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).
  9. Once done, remove from the oven and let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving.
