Grilled Chicken with Herbed Stuffing

Grilled chicken breasts tend to be a bit boring so I like to stuff them with a bunch of herbs, breadcrumbs and garlic. I think they taste infinitely better this way and the stuffing helps keep the chicken moist. —Joy McMillan, The Woodlands, Texas

    4 servings


  • 5 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs

    I usually pick Taste of Home recipes based on the reviews. This one seemed like it had the ingredients for a tasty dinner, so despite no other reviews, I went ahead and tried it. Very simple, the flavors were good, and I would make it again. The reason for four stars was simply that the flavor was tasty- not over the top delicious. I encourage you to try it- it at least changes up the chicken routine. I baked mine at 350 for about 35-40 mins. The lemon also adds a nice touch.
