Instructions

  • Instructions
  • Use a meat tenderizer to pound out the chicken breasts until about 1/4-inch thick.
  • Heat olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Saute mushrooms, bell pepper, and onions for 5 minutes, until par-cooked.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 pan.
  • Place a pinch of cheese in the center of each chicken breast. Place a large spoonful of mushroom and bell pepper mixture on top. Finish off with another pinch of cheese.
  • Carefully roll up the chicken so stuffing is completely inside. Secure the chicken with toothpicks. Place in the prepared pan. Season generously with cajun seasoning. Place a tablespoon of butter on top of each chicken breast.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is cooked through, to an internal temperature of 165 degrees, about 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Remove toothpicks before serving. You can serve the chicken whole, or slice in half, or in 1-inch slices.
