RECIPE: 2 large chicken breasts
1 ½ teaspoon garlic powder divided
½ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon himalayan pink sea salt
⅛ teaspoon black pepper
1 cup broccoli florets finely chopped
½ cup red pepper finely chopped
3/4 cup light shredded cheese
1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Add onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper and ½ teaspoon of garlic powder to a small bowl.
Stir to combine.
Sprinkle onto both sides of chicken.
Place seasoned chicken on a cutting board.
Use a large, flat spatula to press down on the top of the chicken breast and use your other hand to insert a knife into the thickest side of the chicken.
Cut a pocket, being careful not to cut all the way through the other side and stopping before you get to the end of the chicken (creating a pocket, not a flap).
In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, add broccoli and 2 tablespoons of water.
Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 3 minutes.
Remove plastic wrap and drain any excess water.
Add red bell pepper, cheese, mayo and remaining 1 teaspoon garlic powder to the bowl with the broccoli.
Stir to combine.
After the pan is heated through, add the chicken breasts – top side down.
Allow to cook for 4-5 minutes each side to brown.
Place pan in the oven to continue cooking the chicken an additional 12-15 minutes or until chicken cooks through and juices run clear.
Allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes and serve warm.
