This is a simple and easy stuffed chicken breast recipe. Chicken breasts are usually dry. I have used stuffed mushroom cooked with butter for stuffing to keep the breasts moist. Mixed herbs with paprika, cumin and vinegar adds extra flavour to the chicken breast. You can serve it with risotto, mashed potato or salads. Hope you will enjoy. Feel free to share your thoughts.
