Kip gevuld met mozzarella in een paprika roomsaus

Chicken stuffed with mozzarella in a creamy bell pepper sauce

It's a mouthful, this title! My husband really wants to eat lowcarb again and despite bell pepper being a vegetable with relatively a lot of carbs this is an ideal lowcarb meal. I only use 2 bell peppers for the entire sauce.

Creamy bell pepper sauce

So you have to grill the bell peppers firt or, just like I did, use a jar of grilled bell peppers. I drain them and blend them with some herbs into a sauce.

This sauce has more of a kick than the regular tomato sauce. I love it.

Spaghetti

During cooking I thought this must be really nice with some spaghetti so I boiled some spaghetti and I was right. Amazing!

Broccoli gratin

Back to lowcarb though, I served this chicken with a lovely broccoli gratin and that was highly appreciated.

Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 ball mozzarella
  • 1 jar of grilled red bell peppers
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • handfull fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 30 ml heavy cream
  • pepper and salt
  • some oil for frying the chicken

Instructions

  • Carefully slit the chicken open. Cut the mozzarella in slices and stuff the chicken. You can use skewers to close the chicken up. Season with salt and pepper.
  • In a blender puree the bell peppers, garlic, basil and oregano to a sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat up a bit of oil in a frying pan and bake the chicken on both sides until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove from the pan.
  • Add the bell pepper sauce to the pan and let this simmer for a minute, then add the heavy cream and stir. Put the chicken back in the sauce and let simmer, with lid, until cooked. This took about 5 minutes.
  • Serve with extra basil and sauce, veggies, spaghetti or some bread.

      Dankjewel! Was ook echt super lekker! Als je op de kcal wil letten dan zou ik het eerder vervangen door kookroom light.

    Echt heerlijk! Ik deed ook nog een handje lichtgeroosterde pijnboompitten door de saus. Ook lekker. Echt topsectorenbeleid, dank!
