Spicy Kale and Corn Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Superfood kale and sweet corn create a duo rich in vitamin A. The pepper jack cheese adds tons of spice while binding the stuffing for the chicken. If spicy's not your thing, try Monterey Jack or Havarti cheese instead for creamy without the heat.

We love the fresh flavors of Greek cuisine so it only makes sense that we incorporated a few in this quick-and-easy dish: salty feta cheese and sweet, sun-dried tomatoes.

Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Breasts
Boneless skinless chicken breasts stay moist and flavorful when wrapped in bacon and roasted. Plus, a filling of cream cheese flavored with onions, garlic and Worcestershire sauce infuses the meat with even more flavor from the inside.

Spinach-Artichoke Dip Stuffed Grilled Chicken
Jeff's creamy, stuffed chicken is surprisingly simple to make. Don't skip the step where you refrigerate for an hour, though. It's the key to making sure the filling is firm enough to stay in place while the chicken bakes.

Stuffed Chicken Divan with a Sherry Dijon Sauce
We've updated this classic dish while still keeping all the elements that people love: crisp broccoli, juicy chicken, and a tasty Parmesan sauce. By stuffing the chicken breasts we were able to cut down on the overall cheese in the dish while still maximizing flavor. A mixture of low-fat evaporated milk, broth and sherry with a touch of cornstarch makes a creamy sauce that tastes as rich as the full fat version.

Cactus pads, or nopales, have been consumed for generations. Studies suggest that nopales may control blood sugar levels in some people. I think they have a flavor similar to green beans. They are available at most Latin markets and come cleaned to make it much easier to prepare at home.

Ham and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts
This family-favorite is ready in a flash. Just be sure you don't rush the cooking process; fry the chicken in batches so that the tempertaure of the oil stays high enough to cook each piece to the perfect golden-brown.
Couscous Stuffed Chicken Breast
This recipe packs ordinary chicken breast with a variety of Mediterranean flavors. You'll find feta, Kalamata olives, sun-dried tomates, garlic, lemon and more.
Pecan-Crusted Stuffed Chicken
The key to this flavorful chicken dish is to pound the chicken breast until it has an even thickness all the way across. That will make it easier to roll after you add the filling — and will help ensure that the poultry cooks evenly.

Bacon-Wrapped Blue Cheese-Stuffed Chicken
The trick to perfectly stuffed chicken breast? Stick a small, sharp knife into the thick end of the chicken and cut about 2/3 of the way into the breast. That way, you won't run the risk of poking the knife out the other side of the chicken and making a hole for the filling to escape!
