Steps to make Sweet and Spicy Stuffed Chicken Breasts


Preheat oven

Preheat the oven to 390 °F.


Cook onion, garlic, ginger


In a medium pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil and add 1 thinly sliced onion, 2 cloves of chopped garlic and 1 knob of fresh ginger root. Season to taste, then cook for about 8 minutes until softened.


Add spices


Add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of garam masala and cook for another 2 minutes.


Cook bulgur wheat and sultanas


In a pot, cover 100 grams of bulgur wheat and 25 grams of sultanas with boiling water and boil for about 5 minutes until softened. Drain excess water and add to the pan of cooked onions.


Add parsley and almonds


Add 20 grams of freshly chopped parsley and 50 grams of toasted almonds flakes and mix to combine.


Prepare chicken breasts


Slice through 4 chicken breasts, lengthwise, taking care not to cut through. Divide the prepared stuffing between the 4 sliced chicken breasts then fold to close and rub some cinnamon into the skins. Tightly pack the 4 stuffed breasts into a small baking dish.




Bake stuffed chicken breasts in the preheated oven for 25 minutes until cooked.

Good but not on its own it really does require some sort of side dish.

Lilyana Klitzing

This is the BOMB sooo freaking tasty with mashed potatos too.

Angelique Lien

Easily one of my favorite stuffed chicken meals I've ever had.

Kenia Nathans

It wasn't that great I feel like the jalapeno chicken was a lot more spicy which is what I was hopeing for.

Alayah Porada

WOW this is totally delicious never had anything like this in my life!!

Noa Einerson

I put some marina sauce as dip on the side and that seemed to be the thing that really made everyone gobbled this up.

Mercedes Sachs

Sadly I have a small family so I didn't make as much as listed and had to cut down on everything by half but it was brilliant.

Ivory Gupte

So I added everything that was listed but not garam masala..what is that?

Emerie Pirruccello

Ditched the almonds since I hate anything with nuts, thankfully it didn't change the flavor of anything.

Lainey Masangcay

Not sure why I even added the cinnamon, felt random and pointless since there was not even a hint of cinnamon taste in this.

Jurnee Domnitz

Parsley tends to ruin the flavor of all good things so I made sure to skip it in this dish.

Cara Plescia

The flavor wasn't half bad but the chicken was flat out dry as sand, what should I do?

Lillie Mangabat

Was kinda hard to make this turn out just like the photos but so worth it.

Kadence Meher

Another perfect dish from the number one chief on here, Lilly. Can't wait to see what else you come up with.

Greta Lannie

Really easy to make so I'm glad I found this website.

Mabel Brekken

I'd recommend having this with cheesy garlic bread and white wine, everything blends well together.

Anne Rolader

Great and tasty spicy sweet stuffed chicken almost reminds me of the sweet and spicy chicken from the Chinese resturants haha.

Antonella Renstrom

Accidently used sunflower oil instead of olive but thankfully the taste wasn't too bad not sure if it even changes anything honestly.

Maren Lepre

Huge crowd pleaser my entire family was drooling at the smell of it lmao.

Wren Soscia
