Mama Lil's Pickled Pepper and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast

This recipe is a delicious and elegant way to dress up a chicken dinner. The tangy pickled peppers and creamy goat cheese perfectly balance the juicy chicken. 


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts 
  • 1/2 cup Mama Lil's Pickled Peppers, finely chopped 
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • Toothpicks 
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish) 


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. 
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the chopped Mama Lil's Pickled Peppers, crumbled goat cheese, minced garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. 
  3. Using a sharp knife, cut a pocket into the thickest part of each chicken breast, being careful not to cut all the way through. 
  4. Stuff each chicken breast with a few spoonfuls of the pickled pepper and goat cheese mixture. Secure the opening with toothpicks. 
  5. Heat a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add the stuffed chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown. 
  6. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the center. 
  7. Remove the skillet from the oven and let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve hot.
