Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Broccoli and Goat Cheese

If you have followed me for any length of time, you know that I love to stuff and roll things!  I also love to cook these rolled-up bundles in my large cupcake here we go again, except the ingredients have changed.  I have to say this one came out delicious!  Chicken always seems to go well with broccoli, and well...goat cheese?  Who doesn't love goat cheese?  

Read and do as I do:

6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 large handfuls of broccoli, finely chopped
1 shallot, chopped
fresh basil....maybe 10 leaves, cut up
salt and pepper
about 1 cup of goat cheese
12 slices of Prosciutto
Seasoned breadcrumbs

This dinner is a little labor-intensive, but when you love to cook, you simply don't mind!  Begin by chopping up your broccoli and shallot and add to a fry pan with a little olive oil.  Saute until the broccoli begins to become tender.  Remove from the heat and let cool slightly and add your chopped basil, salt and pepper.

Once cool, mix in the goat cheese.  Taste to make sure there is enough salt and pepper.

Take the chicken breast and butterfly the thick end so that it lies flat on your counter.  Using your meat mallet, pound out as thin as you can.

Begin by laying 1 ½ slices of prosciutto on the chicken, followed by a scoop of broccoli stuffing.

Roll everything up and place in your cupcake tin that has been sprayed with a little vegetable oil spray.

When you have them all done, spray the tops with the oil spray and sprinkle with a little seasoned breadcrumbs.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until juices run clear.

Another masterpiece for you to enjoy!
