Stuffed Herb Chicken

Jazz up chicken breast with these flavorful ingredients.

We love to serve dishes that not only look good, but taste amazing. And a meal like this is a winner because it’s quick and easy to put together. Our delicious and savory stuffed herb chicken definitely fits the bill. They’re perfect for a weeknight family meal, for a small dinner party, or it’s easy to half the recipe for a lovely and romantic dinner for two. Regardless of the occasion, this is a meal that is too good to pass up.

What makes these extra indulgent is that they’re stuffed with Provolone cheese and salty pancetta. We keep everything secure with a toothpick, and the final touch is a generous sprinkle of herbs. These fillings take plain ol’ chicken breast to a new level. Herby, salty and cheesy are a great combination, and help to jazz up the usual chicken routine. When the family tasted it, everyone agreed that it’s a keeper! Best of all, it’s on the table and ready to enjoy without too much fuss or muss!
