Cranberry and Brie Stuffed Chicken Breast

While it may look complicated, this Cranberry and Brie Stuffed Chicken Breast is surprisingly simple to make for a holiday table, date night in or an easy dinner recipe that’s not boring.

What You Need

Preheat oven to 375°F. Cut chicken breasts lengthwise into 6 smaller pieces that you can butterfly. Then slice each piece lengthwise in the middle but not through. Open flat and tenderize a bit. Set aside.


Preheat large non-stick skillet on low-medium heat and swirl half of oil to coat. Add garlic and onion, saute until translucent, stirring occasionally. Add spinach, cranberries, thyme, salt and pepper; saute for another minute. Remove from heat.


In the middle of a flat open chicken tender, place a slice of brie and 1/6th of spinach stuffing next to it. Fold in half, tuck in the ends, and wrap tightly with kitchen twine.


Repeat with remaining chicken, place it on a large plate and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Return skillet to medium heat and swirl remaining oil. Add stuffed chicken and sear for about 3 minutes per side.


If your skillet is oven proof, cover it or transfer chicken to a baking dish (and cover), and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, let chicken stand 5 minutes and remove the twine.


Serve hot with a side of choice spooning juices on top.



Keep refrigerated in a glass airtight container for up to 3 days.
