Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 2 1x

  • 2 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

FILLING

  • ½ cup chopped broccoli
  • 2 oz cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup shredded cheese cheddar and mozzarella
  • ¾ teaspoon ranch seasoning

Instructions:

  1. Pat the chicken breast dry with a paper towel. Slightly flatten each breast with a mallet. Butterfly the chicken breast with a sharp knife.
  2. In a small bowl, mix paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt with oil and rub on the outside of the chicken breast.
  3. In another bowl, mix the chopped broccoli with softened cream cheese, shredded cheese and ranch seasoning.
  4. Stuff each chicken breast with the broccoli cheese filling. Seal the chicken breast with toothpicks so the filling won’t spill out. Some melted cheese will ooze out during cooking but it’s normal.
  5. Preheat Air fryer to 375˚F. Place the stuffed chicken breast in the Air fryer and air fry for 15 minutes. Check the doneness using a meat thermometer. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach 165˚F.
  6. Carefully remove the chicken from the Air fryer and serve with a side dish.
