Who doesn’t love a nice comforting weeknight or Sunday night dinner. It’s no secret chicken breast can be versatile, but to be honest it isn’t my favorite cut (I’m a fan of boneless chicken thighs).

But alas I found a recipe that our household digs into! Heart, cheesy -stuffed with veggies – baked chicken breast. The yummiest and pretty easy recipe to toss in the oven. Stuffed with fresh broccoli and seasoned with paprika, fresh pepper and garlic – topped with cheese and more cheese.
