Carl Redding's Gouda-Stuffed Chicken

Again, I saw this dish on The Chew and decided to make it and it was extremely easy and DELICIOUS! Erik loved it! I added roasted sweet potatoes as a side. For the sweet potatoes all you have to do is peel the skin off two potatoes and then cut them into cubes. Place in a baking dish so that each piece can lay flat and add olive oil, salt & pepper and mix to coat the cubes of potato. Then roast in the over at 350F for 45 minutes.

Now onto the chicken...

Skill level: easy
Time: 1-30 minutes
Servings: 6
Cost: $


  • 1 bunch fresh broccoli
  • 3 cups smoked gouda cheese (thinly sliced)
  • 6 boneless chicken breast
  • ssalt and pepper to taste
  • paprika to taste
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce


  1. Wash and chop broccoli into very small pieces.
  2. Cut a "pocket" in each chicken breast by cutting lengthwise down one side of the breast (do not "butterfly" the chicken breast, it should only have a cut for the "pocket" down one side!).
  3. Season each breast with salt, pepper, and paprika.
  4. Stuff each "pocket" with broccoli and cheese. Use the toothpicks to wind through and sew the pocket shut.
  5. Place the chicken on the grill to produce hash marks on the chicken breasts.
  6. Finish in a 350ºF oven for 15 minutes or until and heat until thoroughly cooked.
  7. Plate each breast with 1 tablespoon of BBQ sauce on bottom. Remember to remove the toothpicks before serving!
