I was hoping that once we got back into the school swing of things we would be able to have home-cooked meals on the table every evening but boy I was wrong. As the kids get older, I am finding that preparing dinner meals is getting harder. Between Taekwondo, dance and T-ball and other school activities the dinner plans get pushed aside. That was until I found our new favorite dinner meal that I can prepare in about 30 minutes! Barber Foods Breaded Stuffed Chicken Breasts are not only delicious but totally kid approved!

Now, I have made my own stuffed chicken before but it is one of those meals that does take a lot of time in the kitchen and I just do not have that time anymore. Thankfully for families like ours we have this option of enjoying the great meal of stuffed chicken but not have to find that kitchen time in our schedule. I really enjoy being able to run to the freezer and get these chicken breasts and place a hot meal on the dinner table even after a long day at the office and a visit to Taekwondo.
The last time I made these delicious chicken breasts I decided to make an easy side dish that I knew would compliment the chicken well and be a hit with the whole family as well.

To make this broccoli and cheese stuffed chicken breast perfect you will need to cook the chicken until it has an internal temperature of 165 degrees and follow the cooking instructions on the box. Not only does this make the insides nice and gooey but makes sure your chicken is safe to eat.
When you find these boxes in the frozen section at your local grocery store you will see the new packaging and label that indicates a new recipe. The stuffed chicken breasts have an amazing taste that like I said before is kid approved but also adult approved. This isn't *just* a frozen chicken breast - it is crispy, gooey and quality food. Yummy!!
Our favorite is the Broccoli and Cheese but there are also Cordon Bleu and Chicken Kiev to choose from. Having these options in our freeze makes meal planning so much easier but also make dinnertime pleasent. The world of picky eater kids is difficult - finding something that we hear "YUMMY" over and over again is a relief!
