This delicious stuffed chicken breast recipe is really easy to make and always gets rave reviews!  Tender and juicy on the inside with 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!

  1. So I made this last night and just saw I forgot to add the moz cheese!! Darn! lol. But even with out it this was delicious! Thank you! We will be making this again and again. Wouldn’t change a thing.

  2. How do you get the top of the chicken breast nice and brown with crisp skin? Do you baste it with something?

    Thanks,
    Jenine

    1. I just put salt and pepper, nothing else. Because it cooks at a high temperature, it will brown and crisp nicely.
