▢1.5 lbs Boneless skinless chicken breasts or 4 large breasts
▢Salt and pepper, to taste
▢1 Tbsp Olive Oil
▢1 Tsp Garlic Powder divided
▢½ Tsp Paprika
▢1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
▢1 Cup Small chopped broccoli florets
▢1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
▢¼ Cup Cream Cheese

Preheat your oven to 375F.
Place the chicken on a chopping board and using a sharp knife, slice through the middle to create a pocket for the stuffing.
Repeat with all the chicken breasts, then season with salt, pepper, paprika and Italian seasoning on all sides.
In a mixing bowl, combine broccoli with shredded cheese, garlic powder, and cream cheese. season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture into the chicken breasts, and secure the pocket using toothpicks.
Heat oil in a large, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sear for 2-3 minutes on each side, then transfer to the oven and bake for additional 15-17 minutes.
A meat thermometer inserted in the middle of the chicken should read 165F. Enjoy!
