Stuffed Chicken Breasts Recipe


  • 6 boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 4 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 rib celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons fine dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) condensed tomato soup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon leaf basil, crumbled


Place chicken pieces between sheets of plastic wax; gently pound with a meat mallet to flatten evenly. Be careful not to tear or break through.
In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil and butter; sauté onion slices, mushrooms, and celery until tender. Add egg, parsley, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Stir to blend well.
Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper; fill with even portions of the filling mixture. Roll up and secure with toothpicks. Arrange chicken breasts in a shallow 3-quart baking dish, spooning any extra filling around the chicken rolls. Mix soup with 1/2 cup water and the basil; pour over chicken.
Bake at 350°, basting occasionally with sauce in the baking dish, for 55 minutes to 1 hour. Remove toothpicks and serve with rice or potatoes. Serves 4 to 6.
