Cheesy Garlic Butter Mushroom Stuffed Chicken



4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons butter

8 ounces mushrooms, sliced

4 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

Using a sharp knife, cut a pocket into each chicken breast, being careful not to cut all the way through.

Season the inside and outside of each chicken breast with salt and pepper.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.

Add butter to the skillet and let it melt.

Add mushrooms to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are golden brown and tender, about 5-7 minutes.

Add minced garlic to the skillet and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.

Remove skillet from heat and let cool slightly.

In a bowl, mix together shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese.

Stuff each chicken breast with the mushroom mixture and cheese mixture.

Place stuffed chicken breasts in a baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted and bubbly.

Garnish with chopped parsley before serving.
