Broccoli-Stuffed Chicken

I was born in 1936 to a family of eight. Much of our food came from our garden and the henhouse. Mother served fried chicken every Sunday, but sometimes she surprised us with this broccoli-stuffed chicken. No arguments then as to who got what piece of chicken! —Donald Laugherty, Connellsville, Pennsylvania

Prep: 15 min.
Bake: 40 min.
Makes: 2 servings


2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup finely chopped fresh broccoli
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chicken broth


Preheat oven to 350°. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Combine poultry seasoning, pepper, curry powder, garlic powder and salt; sprinkle over chicken. Combine broccoli and cheese; place half the mixture in the center of each chicken breast. Fold long sides over filling; fold ends up and secure with toothpicks.

Place, seam side down, in an 8-in. square baking pan; add broth. Cover pan loosely with foil. Bake 30 minutes. Remove foil; baste the chicken with pan juices. Bake, uncovered, until chicken is no longer pink, about 10 minutes longer. Remove toothpicks before serving. If desired, thicken pan juices for gravy.
