Ingredients

  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup broccoli chopped, cooked (we use defrosted frozen broccoli)
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 cup bread crumbs

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix together the cream cheese, garlic, pepper, broccoli, and mozzarella.
  • Spread the cheese mixture onto the chicken thighs.
  • Roll the chicken up and spray with a little oil and then roll into the bread crumbs. You could also use eggs if you don't want to use oil, but since it's a spray you're not using much.
  • If needed you can secure the chicken thighs close with a toothpick to prevent the mixture from oozing out while baking.
  • Place the chicken onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Spray with a little more oil and bake for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
