    Turn your chicken breasts into a meal with a mashed potato stuffing. Serve with steamed broccoli or green beans and your done.


    • 2 Medium Baking Potatoes, Peeled & Cubed
    • 1/4 Cup Milk
    • 4 Tbsp. Butter
    • 1 Medium Lemon, Zested & Juiced
    • 1/4 Tsp. Salt
    • 1/8 Tsp. Ground Black Pepper
    • 4 Each Bone-In Chicken Breast Halves
    • 1 Tbsp. Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
    • 2 Tbsp. Fresh Parsley, Chopped or 2 Tsp. Dried


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. In medium saucepan, bring the potatoes and enough water to cover to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 15 minutes. Drain, then return the potatoes to the pot. Add the milk, 2 tablespoons butter and lemon peel and mash until smooth.
    3. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the potatoes to a work surface, flatten into an even round an cut into quarters.
    4. Run your fingers under the skin of each chicken breast to separate it form the meat. Place one-quarter of the potato mixture under the skin of each chicken breast; gently pressing to evenly distribute.
    5. Place the stuffed chicken in a roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake until tender and the juices run clear, about 40 minutes.
    6. Transfer chicken to a serving platter. Stir the lemon juice, parsley and remaining 2 tablespoons butter into the pan juice, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve.

        Thanks, this is great because the chicken stays moist and the potatoes pick up the flavor of the meat.
