Goat Cheese–Stuffed Chicken Breast with Broiled Zucchini and Cherry


Prep time: 10 minutes |Cook time: 25 minutes | Serves 4

Ingredients :

2 ounces soft goat cheese
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
½ teaspoon minced garlic
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6 ounces each)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 pound zucchini, diced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


To prep the stuffed chicken breasts:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the goat cheese, parsley, and garlic. Mix well.
  2. Cut a deep slit into the fatter side of each chicken breast to create a pocket (taking care to not go all the way through). Stuff each breast with the goat cheese mixture. Use a toothpick to secure the opening of the chicken, if needed.
  3. Brush the outside of the chicken breasts with the oil and season with the Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper.
    To prep the zucchini and tomatoes: In a large bowl, combine the zucchini, tomatoes, and oil. Mix to coat. Season with salt and black pepper.
    To cook the chicken and vegetables:
  4. Install a crisper plate in each of the two baskets. Insert a broil rack in the Zone 2 basket over the crisper plate. Place the chicken in the Zone 1 basket and insert the basket in the unit. Place the vegetables on the broiler rack in the Zone 2 basket and insert the basket in the unit.
  5. Select Zone 1, select AIR FRY, set the temperature to 390°F, and set the time to 25 minutes.
  6. Select Zone 2, select AIR BROIL, set the temperature to 450°F, and set the time to 10 minutes. Select SMART FINISH.
  7. Press START/PAUSE to begin cooking.
  8. When cooking is complete, the chicken will be golden brown and cooked through (an instant-read thermometer should read 165°F) and the zucchini will be soft and slightly charred. Serve hot.
