Ingredients

  • 6 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes chopped fine
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 pounds boneless chicken breast
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, and garlic.
  • Season the chicken to taste with salt and pepper. Cut a horizontal slit through the center of the chicken to form a pocket.
  • Stuff the chicken with the cream cheese mixture and secure with toothpicks or wooden skewers.
  • Stove Top
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for 10 minutes per side, or until the center of the chicken registers 160° F on an instant-read thermometer. Allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Air Fryer
  • Brush the outside of the chicken with the oil. Preheat the air fryer to 375 degrees.
  • Place the chicken in the air fryer and cook for 10 minutes. Flip and cook for another 10 minutes, or until the center of the chicken registers 160° F on an instant-read thermometer. Allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
