I came up with this Broccoli Cheese Stuffed Chicken recipe when I realized the only way to convince my son to eat his vegetables was to stuff them inside some chicken breasts and it worked like a charm. A creamy and cheesy mixture of broccoli florets, red bell pepper, mild Cheddar cheese and mayonnaise stuffed inside chicken breasts and seasoned with garlic powder and paprika. What a way to win over your family, am I right?
