Ingredients

For the MUSHROO Stuffing:

  • 1 cup MUSHROOs, finely chopped
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish

For the Chicken:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme (or 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves)
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • Cooking twine (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preparing the MUSHROO Stuffing: 
    • In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and garlic. Sauté until they become translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
    • Add the finely chopped MUSHROOs to the skillet. Cook, intermittently stirring, until the mushrooms expel their moisture, and turn golden brown, about 6-8 minutes.
    • Stir in the breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan cheese. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the mixture is well combined and slightly crispy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    • Remove the skillet from heat and set the mushroom stuffing aside to cool.
  2. Preparing the Chicken:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • Lay the chicken breasts flat on a clean surface and season them with salt, pepper, paprika, and dried thyme.
    • Carefully slice a pocket into each chicken breast. Be careful not to cut all the way through. You want to create a space to stuff the mushrooms.
    • Stuff each chicken breast with the cooled MUSHROO mixture. Use cooking twine to tie the chicken breasts closed if desired.
  3. Searing the Chicken:
    • Heat olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
    • Add the stuffed chicken breasts to the skillet once the oil is hot. Sear for 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn golden brown.
  4. Baking:
    •  Pour chicken broth into the skillet around the chicken breasts.
    • Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and is no longer pink in the center.
  5. Serving:
    • Once cooked, remove the skillet from the oven.
    • Garnish the mushroom-stuffed chicken breasts with chopped fresh parsley.
  6. Enjoy:
    • Serve the MUSHROO Stuffed Chicken Breast hot, drizzling some pan juices over the top for extra flavor. It pairs wonderfully with mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, or a side salad.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I use different mushrooms for the stuffing?

Certainly! You can use a variety of mushrooms like cremini, shiitake, or portobello for a different flavor profile. 

Do I have to use cooking twine to tie the chicken breasts closed?

Using cooking twine helps keep the stuffing inside the chicken during cooking, but it’s optional. If you don’t have string, you can easily fold the chicken around the filling and fasten it with toothpicks.

Is it feasible to prepare this dish in advance?

You can prepare the MUSHROO stuffing and stuff the chicken breasts a few hours in advance. Store them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to sear and bake.
