How to stuff chicken breasts?

The trick for how to stuff a chicken breast is to use thin chicken. If you try using a thick chicken breast, it will take forever to cook through. I prefer to use a thin chicken breast and to put the filling in the middle and roll the chicken piece up to encase the filling. A little filling will ooze out, but that part tastes great too!

I love serving this dinner with pasta or you could d0 just big slices of garlic bread and a salad. You definitely want some bread to sop up the delicious cheesy goodness that seeps out of your chicken!

This is my favorite type of dinner, a one pot dinner recipe! I use my cast iron enamel pans for everything and if you have Christmas money burning a hole in your pocket, than you definitely want to pick up one of these pans! I honestly use it nearly every single day and love how it can go from stove top to oven to table. Less dishes is always a plus!

For the chicken

  • 4 thin chicken breasts no thicker than 1/4 inch
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce

For the lasagna filling

  • 1/2 cup shredded provolone or mozzarella cheese or a mixture of the two
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped basil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pour sauce into the bottom of an oven proof skillet or casserole dish.
  2. Set up a chicken dredging station, with one shallow bowl of egg and one of the parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Dredge chicken through egg, shaking off excess, then through the breadcrumb mixture, making sure to coat both sides equally. Set chicken aside.
  3. Mix together lasagna filling ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Split filling evenly between the four chicken pieces. Place filling in the center of each chicken breast. Roll chicken over, tucking in one end under the other.
  4. Place seam side down in the sauce. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. If cheese runs out, push back in before it cools. It will set up as it cools. Let sit 5-10 minutes to allow ricotta mixture to set up.
