Mamacita's Salsa Fresca Cheesy Stuffed Chicken
Prep: 15 min
Cook: 30 min
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup Mamacita's Salsa Fresca, well drained
4 oz of cream cheese, room temperature
4 oz of shredded provolone cheese
2 tablespoons of olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
First preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix cheeses, Salsa Fresca, salt, and pepper in a bowl and set aside. Cut a pocket into the side each chicken breast, cutting deep but not all the way through—make it large enough to stuff with the cheese. Stuff the chicken and, if necessary, keep held together with a toothpick, remembering to remove after cooking. Season outside of chicken with more salt and pepper.
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and once hot, sear the chicken breasts on both sides until golden brown, approximately five minutes. Then place on a baking sheet and finish in the oven for another 25 or so minutes—check the internal temperature to make sure it is cooked thoroughly. Let it stand a few minutes before serving and garnish with chopped parsley or cilantro. Enjoy!
