Vegetable-stuffed chicken


  • Peel the carrot and grate it on the large holes of a box grater.
  • Clean and finely chop the pepper and the broccoli.
  • Place a frying pan over medium-high heat. 
  • Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and then, add the veggies inside. Sauté for 2-3 minutes by mixing with a wooden spoon. 
  • Remove from the heat, let the temperature drop for 5 minutes, and add the cream cheese, the grated cheddar, the basil finely chopped, and the salt. 
  • Mix well with a spoon, and set the stuffing aside until needed.
  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan.
  • Cut the chicken fillets in half, lengthwise; do not cut it all the way through as you need to create a pocket for the stuffing.
  • With a spoon, add the stuffing into the fillets and seal each one with two toothpicks. Alternatively, you can tie them with kitchen twine.
  • Place a frying pan over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil, and sauté the fillets for 2-3 minutes on each side.  
  • Transfer them into a baking pan lined with parchment paper and roast them in the oven for 30-35 minutes.
  • Serve with some green salad, cherry tomatoes, drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt.
