Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts

2- 12oz Chicken Breasts, pounded to 1/2" thickness
2 cups steamed broccoli (you may have extra but you can eat it with your meal
1 T. Thinly Sliced Fresh Basil
2 oz shredded cheddar cheese (or any type of cheese you prefer)
No salt seasoning of your choice to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Butterfly the chicken breast and lay it flat.  Cut it in half and do one side at a time.  
  3. Sprinkle seasoning according to what you like on it.  
  4. Sprinkle the cheese in the center.  Then add the chopped broccoli on top.  
  5. Make sure you don't put too much or else you won't be able to roll it and keep the ingredients in.  Then I started on one side, rolling it towards the center and tucking the sides in.  
  6. Secure it with twine or a toothpick down the center.  Brush it with olive oil and add a little bit more seasoning on top.
  7. Cook chicken for 25-35 minutes, turning the chicken every 10 minutes to cook evenly on all sides. 
  8. You can add a little more cheese on top the last 10 minutes it cookes if you'd like too.
  9. Remove from oven, transfer to a plate, remove the toothpick or twine and enjoy.
  10. We eat it with steamed veggies, spinach salad, baked sweet potato, quinoa or sweet potato fries.
