Chicken Breast Stuffed in Cottage Cheese and Basil

IMG_0507


INGREDIENTS

chicken breasts, sliced in the middle
onions, minced
garlic, minced
chives, chopped
fresh basil
cottage cheese
salt and pepper

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

1. Prepare the stuffing by combining, chopped onions, garlic, chives, basil and cottage cheese. 
2. Slice the chicken breasts in half, to give room for the stuffing
3. Get a dollop of the stuffing into the chicken. If it folds easily, leave it or you can hold it close by using a toothpick
4. Grill the stuffed-chicken, until the chicken is properly cooked. The stuffing will juice, collect it and pour it on the cooked pieces, to give it more flavor

When I found this recipe, it was meant for a cream cheese stuffing but I made it “healthier” by using cottage cheese instead. Of course, cream cheese is definitely tastier than cottage cheese but  trust me, the onions and basil gives every bite a juicy taste that you will love. This was supposed to be a battered and fried dish, but I grilled it, instead.

Chicken breasts cook fast so you do not have to grill it for long. Try your best not to dry the chicken too much so that it will remain juicy and soft.
