Philadelphia Stuffed Chicken

Philadelphia Stuffed Chicken (Philly -shortened) is the perfect go to recipe! You know those evenings when you think, oh what should I do for dinner (?) Well this is it! Chicken is my go to, is it yours? You’ll see so many recipes on Easy Peasy that are chicken based, it’s just so versatile! This is a cracker of a recipe, trust me.

So easy, so simple, please just have a go! I’m hoping you’ve probably got most of the ingredients in the fridge, freezer and cupboard. In this house it’s such a favourite – and you simply just bang it in the oven! It’s sort of self saucing. The creaminess of the philly and the crunch of the breadcrumbs is yummy! It also has a sweetness to it from the cherry tomatoes and garlicky yumminess, plus the chicken stays super moist…. Philly Chicken a firm crowd pleaser and so simple

We all love Philadelphia Cheese recipes don’t we, and it doesn’t have to be Philadelphia any soft mild cheese spread don’t we? I love to use it in pasta dishes too. I fine that using the light or the extra light versions help me keep the calories lower and also the fast, but never

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

As they say Winner Winner Chicken Dinner. I have loads of great chicken recipes on here, just use the search box. One I really love is my Lime Chicken with avocado salsa  go and have a look! The recipe is so tasty and so fresh! I make this Philly Chicken and my Lime chicken all the time! So easy, chicken is so flipping versatile…

I’ve already said this but chicken is hands down my go to supper. I eat so much of it! 🙂

The good thing is that Chicken is an excellent source of niacin and very good source of protein and selenium. It is also a good source of protein, selenium, vitamin B6, and phosphorus. And low in fat!

It is also a good source of choline, pantothenic acid and vitamin B12.

So I’m sold!

Philadelphia Stuffed Chicken

Ingredients

You know those evenings when you think, oh what should I do for dinner? Well this is it! Hopefully you’ll have most of the stuff in the fridge / freezer and cupboard – Its super tasty and easy….

Serves 2

  • 2 Chicken Breasts, boneless, skinless
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & Freshly ground Black pepper
  • Philadelphia Cream Cheese – 1 Tablespoon per chicken breast – any sort but I use the light  herb and garlic one (if you do not use the garlic one, you will need to add a bit of garlic to cream cheese)
  • Cherry Tomatoes – box or however many you have
  • Handful Spinach
  • Breadcrumbs – old bread just crumbled (for 2 breasts I use 3 slices bread)
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan (or any cheese)
  • 2 Slices Bacon, cut into small pieces

Preparation Method

Pre-heat oven 200C/400F/Gas 6

  1. Cut open the chicken breasts and lay flat (do not cut THROUGH the breasts)
  2. Drizzle with Olive Oil and season well
  3. Add the tablespoon of Phili down the centre then fold over and place in an oven proof dish, fold side down
  4. Scatter the spinich around the chicken and chuck on the Cherry Tomatoes – drizzle in Olive oil
  5. Mix the breadcrumbs with the Parmesan and salt & pepper. Sprinkle over the chicken breasts, pressing the breadcrumbs down
  6. Finally scatter over bacon pieces
  7. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes
  8. It’s yum- the sweetness of the tomatoes with the garlic and cream cheese – self saucing – yummy!!!!

From Beth Made the 'Philly Chicken' today for lunch and it was delicious! ? Put it together with new potatoes and peas and it all got eaten up - five clean plates! The chicken was cooked to perfection, so succulent, and the tomatoes mixed with the Philly sauce gave it a real sweet taste. Definitely something I'll be doing again ? xxx

Good Lord: the double threat of autocorrect and accidentally hitting SUBMIT. Let’s try again. I always have PANKO breadcrumbs in my pantry, so I’m trying your recipe with those. This sounds really delicious and so easy! Thanks for sharing on #cookblogshare!
