Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Breasts with a title

This delicious stuffed chicken breast recipe is really easy to make and always gets rave reviews!  Tender and juicy on the inside with a deliciously crispy skin and an amazing mushroom filling.  This recipe is easy enough for a weeknight family dinner and fancy enough to serve to guests!

You can use any type of mushroom in this recipe, I prefer brown mushrooms for a richer flavor.  Bone-in, skin-on chicken definitely provides the best flavor and the most tender chicken!  When stuffing the chicken, if you have a little bit of filling leftover, just lift the skin and add it to the skin.  I always use an instant read thermometer for absolutely perfect chicken!

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Place butter in a pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until slightly softened. Add in mushrooms and cook until juices are released and reabsorbed. Add wine and thyme. Cook until evaporated but not dry. Cool completely.
  • Combine cooled mushrooms with cream cheese, mozzarella cheese and salt & pepper to taste.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut a 1 ½″ slit in the side of the chicken. Move the knife around creating a pocket. Fill the pocket with ¼ of the mushroom mixture. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts.
  • Place chicken breasts on a foil-lined pan, sprinkle with salt & pepper to taste, and bake 30-35 minutes (165°F).
