Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup broccoli florets, finely chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • Cooking spray


  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
    • Use a sharp knife to make a pocket in each chicken breast. Be careful not to cut all the way through. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the chopped broccoli, shredded cheddar cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, dried thyme, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  3. Stuff the Chicken:
    • Spoon the broccoli and cheese mixture evenly into the pockets of the chicken breasts, pressing gently to secure the filling.
    • If necessary, use toothpicks to help keep the pockets closed.
  4. Cook in the Air Fryer:
    • Lightly brush the stuffed chicken breasts with olive oil on both sides.
    • Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
    • Place the stuffed chicken breasts in the air fryer basket in a single layer, leaving space between each piece.
    • Cook in the preheated air fryer at 375°F (190°C) for 18-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the filling is hot and bubbly.
  5. Serve:
    • Once cooked, carefully remove the stuffed chicken breasts from the air fryer basket.
    • Allow them to cool for a few minutes before serving.
    • Serve the air fryer stuffed chicken with your favorite side dishes, such as roasted vegetables, rice, or salad.
  6. Enjoy:
    • Enjoy this delicious and cheesy stuffed chicken straight from the air fryer!

Feel free to customize the filling with your favorite ingredients, such as spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, or different types of cheese. Adjust the cooking time as needed based on the thickness of your chicken breasts.
