Stuffed Grilled Chicken Recipe

Stuffed Grilled Chicken Recipe

“As a single working mom with two kids, I look for recipes that are fast and simple,“ writes Candi VanMeveren from Lamberton, Minnesota. “My family loves this one and it gets me out of the kitchen fast.“ TIP: This recipe is just as delicious broiled, Candi adds. Place chicken on foil-lined pan (for easy cleanup) about 4 inches from heat for 12 minutes on each side.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

Directions

  • 1. In a small skillet, saute onion and garlic in 3 tablespoons butter for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Remove from the heat; stir in bread crumbs. Carefully cut a pocket in each chicken breast half. Fill with bread crumb mixture; secure with metal or soaked wooden skewers.
  • 2. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt remaining butter; stir in lemon peel. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until juices run clear, basting frequently with lemon butter. Yield: 4 servings.
