Cheesy Buffalo Stuffed Chicken

Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time45 mins
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 3 people

Equipment

  • cast-iron baking dish
  • small mixing bowl
  • small sauce pot

Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs. chicken breast about 3 breasts
  • ¾ cup cream cheese
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese extra for the top
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Cracked black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup Frank’s red hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1-2 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Gently spray a cast-iron skillet with cooking spray. Set it aside.
  • Trim any excess fat off of your chicken breast and cut a thin slit down the side of the breast. I used scissors to cut the chicken. Repeat this step for all three chicken breasts.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and cracked black pepper. Stir until well combined.
  • Using a spoon, gently scoop some of the cheese mixture and tuck it into the opening on the chicken.
  • Place the stuffed chicken in the prepared cast-iron pan. (A baking dish will work fine too.)
  • I like to arrange my chicken, so the cheese side / opening faces upwards. This way the cheese doesn’t all melt out when cooking. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
  • While the chicken is baking, prepare the buffalo sauce.
  • In a small sauce pot add the butter and Frank’s red-hot sauce. Stir over low heat until well combined.
  • After 20 minutes, remove the chicken from the oven and pour the buffalo sauce over the chicken. Top with a little extra shredded mozzarella and bake for an additional 5 minutes uncovered.
  • You can also broil for 1-2 minutes so the cheese gets extra crispy and bubbly on top.
  • Remove from the oven, top with some fresh chopped parsley and enjoy!
