Though we hate to admit it, there are times when chicken breast gets a bad wrap. Some people find it too dry, while others are left wanting a bit more flavor. Though a generous helping of seasoning salt or cooking spices can help, stuffing your chicken breasts with a handful of ingredients can take them from boring to mouthwatering in no-time. Keep reading below to choose your favorite stuffing combination and be sure to add it to your summer dining menu today!

How to Stuff and Grill Chicken Breast:

1: Prepare your lling as directed. With your knife parallel to the cutting board, slice four 8-ounce chicken breasts in half horizontally without cutting all the way through; open like a book. Cover with plastic wrap and pound until 1/2 inch thick.

2: Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper, brush as directed, then spoon the lling on top, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges. Roll up the chicken toward the pointy end; tie with 3 pieces of kitchen twine. Brush again as directed.

3: Grill on oiled grates over medium heat, turning, until cooked through, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes, then remove the twine and slice.

How to Make Your Stuffing:

This delicious chicken roll is stuffed with creamy herb-and-garlic cheese, chopped artichokes and hearty spinach to give you an upscale bite in just 45 minutes.

Take your love for summer rolls in a new — and protein-packed — direction with this colorful rolled chicken recipe. You'll use rice vermicelli, carrots, sriracha, bell peppers and scallions to make the crunchy filling, and brush the outside of your chicken breasts with sweet Thai chili sauce during the last two minutes of cooking to infuse it with an irresistible and spicy finish.

Grilled Japanese eggplant, cooked bulgur, crumbled feta, fresh mint and diced tomato combine to form the mouthwatering filling for this delicious rolled chicken breast. To give your chicken an extra depth of flavor, you'll brush it with a tangy harissa, cumin and olive oil glaze before adding it to the grill.

Anyone who has ever had a bacon cheeseburger knows that there's no better combination than melty cheddar cheese and salty bacon. This yummy recipe takes that beloved flavor combination and adds in crunchy chives, fresh parsley and a crumbled buttermilk biscuit to make a filling that's so delicious you'll want to add it to absolutely everything. You'll also cover the outside of your chicken breasts with barbecue sauce for even more bite.

If you tend to save your sun-dried tomatoes and basil for bruschetta, this is the chicken roll recipe for you. You'll use both of those ingredients, plus thinly sliced zucchini, smoked mozzarella and sliced garlic to make the rustic filling. Serve with some crusty bread on the side for a fancy night at home.
