Jan. 21, 2010

By Donald Laugherty at

2 six-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup finely chopped fresh broccoli
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chicken broth


1. Seal chicken in plastic bag and flatten to 1/4-in. thickness. Combine poultry seasoning, pepper, curry powder, garlic powder and salt; sprinkle over chicken. Combine broccoli and cheese; place half in the center of each chicken breast. Fold long sides over filling; fold ends up and secure with a toothpick.

2. Place, seam side down, in an 8-in. square baking pan. Add broth. Cover pan loosely with foil. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Remove foil; baste the chicken with pan juices. Bake, uncovered, 10 minutes longer or until meat juices run clear. Remove toothpicks before serving. Thicken pan juices for gravy if desired.
