  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or greek yogurt
  • 6 cloves garlic crushed through a garlic press
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • For Garnish optional
  • Parsley
  • grape tomatoes quartered


  • Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  • In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, sour cream, garlic, salt and pepper until combined.
  • Lay chicken breast flat in a casserole dish.  Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the chicken and top with the mozzarella cheese.

  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the refrigerator or in the freezer for up to a month.
