  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Muffin Tin Chicken Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 6-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Season chicken breasts with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper; set aside. 
  3. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheeses, the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and remaining ½ teaspoon pepper; mix well.
  4. Spoon mixture evenly onto center of each chicken breast.
  5. Wrap chicken breast around filling, making sure filling is tucked inside the chicken. Place each stuffed breast seam-side down in a cup of the muffin tin. In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs and oil; sprinkle over chicken then sprinkle with paprika. Place muffin tin on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until no pink remains and juices run clear. Run a knife around the edges and remove to a platter.

Can you freeze these? There are only 2 of us but it would be nice to be able to pull out of the freezer a couple of these and have for dinner one night.

Yes, chicken muffins can be frozen. We recommend baking off what you plan to eat and freezing the rest raw. This way youll enjoy a moister chicken.

How fun and clever this recipe is...and it sounds really delicious too. I would have never thought to make something like this but I've got a ton of ideas running through my head now! The cheesy stuffing is everything and would be amazing with some sauteed garlicky mushrooms or a yummy brown butter sauce. I'll definitely be making these little treasures soon.

I made a version of these using freshly grated asiago cheese and kalamata olives, and it was very good. My chicken breasts were rather thick, so I put them between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pounded them thinner with the flat side of a meat mallet. I have made stuffed breasts in a sheet pan before, and the filling leaked out and burned. This method keeps it all inside!

I love ricotta cheese and am always looking for recipes that use it. This one appeals to me with the Italian filling with olives. I think you could lightly sprinkle Panko bread crumbs on the top of the chicken breasts after brushing them with paprika oil for a crunchy topping.

My breasts were BIG. Had a hard time stuffing them, but it was still good.

You know what it means when you assume? Any way I will try with and without the Swiss cheese sounds great and healthy. It is yummy with a little spaghetti sauce. Now to try the others,yummy

**** Try using Swiss Cheese like Chicken Cardon Blue

there are no cresent rolls listed in the recipe either

Let's not get excited. It should say "Stuffed Chicken Breasts in Muffin Cups, that way one would not be confussed and think a starch is involved. Will have to give it a try.

I think everyone should READ this whole recipe before commenting on it but that could just be me?

I don't think it's breaded at all.... just chicken rolled up and topped w/paprika and oil...

Where are you going to put the Panko bread crumbs??

There is no breading listed for the recipe. I presume it is cresent rolls from the tube.

it sounds good
