What do you eat with stuffed chicken?

Wondering what you can have with your broccoli stuffed chicken breast? Try some grains like couscous or quinoa. Also, they will go well with some brown rice, noodles, or zucchini noodles. I love having chicken with more roasted veggies, rice or pasta. Other great options you can try would be some mashed sweet potatoes or top over salad.

How do you tell if a stuffed chicken is done?

The best way to avoid eating undercooked chicken would be to test it with a digital food thermometer. The internal temperature of the stuffed chicken breast should be 165*F in order to be sure that the chicken is cooked thoroughly and ready.

    I cooked this recipe exactly as written and it was amazing!! I did have to cook it at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes to get the chicken to 165 degrees. It was probably the best chicken I have ever cooked.

    5 stars. Just made this for my girlfriend and she loved it. I’m glad she suggested stuffed chicken breast and I’m glad I chose this dish. The cream cheese is the secret ingredient. Great recipe will def be adding to my repertoire.
