Stuffed Chicken Breast

Stuffed Chicken Breast Recipe with peas, mushrooms and tomato sauce.

For stuffed chicken breast:

  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves, skin removed
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tsp black pepper powder
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 cup green peas
  • ½ cup chopped mushroom
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

Tomato Sauce:
  • 2-3 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 1 cup tomato paste
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • ½ turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • Salt to taste


  • In a pan heat 1 tbsp oil and add peas and chopped mushroom. Fry for 2-3 minutes. Mix in salt and pepper. Keep aside.
  • Marinate chicken breast pieces in salt, black pepper powder, 1 tbsp oil and lemon juice for 15 minutes.
  • Place each piece of chicken between 2 sheets of butter paper or in a food storage bag. Pound gently to flatten, using a rolling pin or smooth side of meat mallet.
  • Place small amount of peas mushroom mixture in the center of each flattened piece of chicken.
  • Fold ends over the peas mushroom mixture; roll up, beginning with long side. Secure rolls with toothpicks.
  • Place chicken rolls on a plate; cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Heat 2 tbsp of cooking oil in a heavy skillet over medium-low heat.
  • Fry chicken rolls for 6-8 minutes, turning frequently, until golden brown.
  • In a separate pan heat 2 tbsp of cooking oil and fry onion till golden brown. Now add ginger garlic paste and fry for 1 minute. Add tomato paste; chili, turmeric, coriander powders and salt. Fry till oil separates. Add 1 cup of water and bring it to boil.
  • Add chicken rolls, simmer covered till chicken is tender.
  • Serve with Paratha or Tandoori Roti.

Never freeze cooked meat while it is warm. It must be completely cold before it is packed.
Do not re-freeze cooked meat that has been frozen and thawed completely.

Cook the meat again thoroughly and then re-freeze (this is probably not a good idea as the meat will be highly overcooked by this process, but it can be used in emergencies).
