Tomato-Cream Stuffed Chicken Recipe

Tomato-Cream Stuffed Chicken

½ cup Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened

½ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

½ cup chopped fresh spinach

½ cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

4 bone-in chicken breast halves (8 oz. each)

¼ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. pepper

3 Tbsp. butter

1 Tbsp. olive oil

Sauce:   ¾ cup white wine or chicken broth

¼ cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

3 tsp. chopped, minced

6 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced

¾ cup heavy whipping cream

¼ cup butter, cubed


Preheat oven to 400 F.  In a small bowl, combine first five ingredients.  Carefully loosen the skin on one side of each chicken breast to form a pocket; spread cheese mixture under the skin.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  In a large skillet, brown chicken on both sides in butter and oil.

Transfer to an ungreased 13×9 baking dish.  Bake, Uncovered uncovered, 20-25 minutes or until a thermometer reads 170 F.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine wine, tomatoes, shallot, garlic and basil.  Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; cook until reduced by half.  Add cream and butter.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until thickened, stirring occasionally.  Serve with chicken.              4 servings
