Chicken Stuffed with Lasagne.. It's what's for dinner!

It's What for Dinner!

Amen to that huh?

How many times have you stood in front of your fridge and looked at all the odds and ends and thought, "Huh, what can I make with this?". We'll, that is where I found myself the other day. I had made a big ham and had lots left over. And I had gotten a great deal on asparagus and had to use that up soon. We had already had the ham once, so I wanted to get away from another basic "ham" receipe. So what to do?

I make a weekly menu each week and had picked up some lovely herbed goat cheese at Aldi's this week. Looking around the kitchen, I had some tomatoes, tomato paste and a whole shaker  bottle of Montreal chicken seasoning. This is what I came up with. My son calls in "Chicken Lasagne" we're calling it Chicken stuffed with lasagna so folks don't think it's Chicken meat in lasagna. There is no noodles in it so I'm using a bit of creative license.


I know, I lost some of you with the brussel sprouts.
Frozen chicken breasts
6oz goat cheese
tomato paste
Montreal chicken seasoning

Mince your ham and asparagus to fine consistency and put in a bowl.  Cut up your tomatoes and remove the inside 'meat' (discard or use for soup) and chop well. Mix in the remainder of the ingredients together omitting the tomato paste.

Cut a small pocket, not all the way through though.
Using a sharp knife, slit a pocket in the side of each chicken breast and smear a swash of tomato paste along the inside. What I was kind of going for here was the "herby turkey" smear from Breugger's Bagels. The herbed goat cheese had the herbs already in it so the paste didn't need dressing up. Now insert your filling, pressing in as much as you want making sure to fill the crevices. Put in a foil lined, greased pan. If you like, put some parmesan cheese and/or Montreal chicken seasoning on the top of each
chicken breast. Cover with foil and bake for 45 mins at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. After 45 mins, remove the foil and bake for another 15 mins.


  1. What a delicious looking recipe! We eat a lot of chicken and I am always looking for new ways to prepare it. Will try this for sure! Thanks for linking up at #MerryMonday
