I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Hasselback Pizza Stuffed Chicken

Feel the need for pizza but not the carbs? The solution for your craving is right here!


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

about 1/4 cup pizza/tomato sauce

1/2" tomato slices

mozzarella slices


sweet pepper slivers

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

dry oregano 

olive oil

fresh basil and Italian parsley

Take each chicken breast and make four slices about halfway through and place on a lined baking sheet. Fill each slit with 1 tsp pizza/tomato sauce.

Tuck in a slice of mozzarella. Decide how wide you want to slice it to fit nicely. Slide a slice of tomato in. Depending on the size of the tomato you are using you may have to cut your slices in half.
You can add pepperoni and thin slices of sweet pepper as well. Here's one without tomato for my non-tomato lover!

Top each with 1/4 cup shredded cheddar, a sprinkle of dry oregano and a drizzle of olive oil.

Bake at 375°F for 20-30 minutes, then broil 3-4 minutes for a light golden brown finish.

They are quite filling so go for light sides to accompany them.

Garnish with fresh basil and Italian parsley.
