Have dinner on the table tonight in about 30 minutes. Serve a Barber Foods® Stuffed Chicken Breast alongside a rainbow of colorful vegetables on top of quinoa and rice. It’s an easy and delicious weeknight meal.
Weekdays are pretty hectic around our house. I’m sure you can relate. I’m either busy in the kitchen creating fun recipes to share with you, editing videos, writing posts, or taking care of all the business aspects of blogging.
Some days the last thing I want to do is spend more time in the kitchen cooking an elaborate meal for dinner, so I often turn to Barber Foods for help.
They offer flavorful, high-quality chicken breasts that are hand-stuffed with quality ingredients like cooked ham and a blend of cheeses. The frozen stuffed chicken breasts come packaged two to a box and they are super easy to prepare. Plus, I can feel good about serving these for dinner being the chicken is raised with no hormones.
I know that my schedule doesn’t allow me the luxury of preparing all of our meals from scratch so I always keep boxes of Barber Foods Cordon Bleu Stuffed Chicken Breasts for myself, as well as, Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts for my husband in our freezer.
We do not agree on much of what we eat. We have such different tastes in food. It would be a challenge for me to make two different types of stuffed chicken breasts especially for a quick weeknight meal. This way I don’t have to.
Where to buy Barber Foods Stuffed Chicken Breasts?
- You’ll find the 10-ounce boxes of Barber Foods Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts and Cordon Blue Stuffed Chicken Breasts in the freezer section at Walmart.
- Look for packages of frozen chicken and the boxes will probably be on or near the top shelf.
- You might also be able to find other varieties like Chicken Parmesan, Kiev, and even Créme Brie and Apple at your Walmart.

How to cook Barber Foods Stuffed Chicken Breasts?
- Open the box.
- Unwrap the chicken.
- Pop it on a baking sheet.
- Bake it at 350° Fahrenheit for about 25 minutes until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
If you prefer, you can even cook the stuffed chicken breasts in the microwave.
TIP: Set the chicken on a wire baking rack to allow the heat to reach the bottom too. That way the breading will get nice and crispy.
What to serve as a side dish?
I like to keep this meal well balanced, so I usually roast some vegetables and cook some grains like quinoa and rice.
While your chicken is cooking, chop up some vegetables, toss them in some extra virgin olive oil (I like to use garlic infused oil) and sprinkle on some salt and seasonings, if desired, then roast them in the oven or air fryer.
I love oven roasted vegetables, but the chicken needs to cook at 350 degrees, while the vegetables should roast at 425 degrees so you’ll need two ovens in order to get them cooked at the same time. I do have double wall ovens, but I recently discovered how wonderful it is to use an air fryer to roast vegetables so that’s what I opted for this time.
How to roast vegetables?
- Set a baking sheet in the oven.
- Heat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Cut your choice of vegetables into bite sized pieces. I used zucchini, asparagus, yellow peppers, carrots, and tomatoes.
- Toss with some olive oil, salt, and any seasoning you like.
- Remove the very hot baking sheet from the oven.
- Spread your veggies (except the tomatoes) in an even layer on the pan, allowing a small amount of room around each piece to keep the vegetables from steaming instead of roasting.
- Roast for 15 minutes.
- Flip the vegetables over and add the tomatoes and continue to roast for another 5-10 minutes.
What does the hot pan do?
- Placing the vegetables on the hot pan jump starts the roasting process and helps to caramelize your vegetables which adds great flavor.
How Long Do I Roast Vegetables at 425 degrees?
The zucchini, bell peppers, asparagus, and slices carrots all will roast at the same rate. If you use other vegetables, you may need to adjust the timing. If you are using vegetables that take longer, simply put them in the oven first then add the other vegetables at the appropriate time.
These are approximate cooking times for vegetables cut into 1-inch pieces. If you cut the vegetables smaller reduce the roasting times.
Asparagus – 15-20 minutes
Bell Peppers – 15-20 minutes
Broccoli – 20-25 minutes
Brussels Sprouts (halved) – 20-25 minutes
Butternut Squash, diced – 25-30 minutes
Carrots (cut into thin slices)- 15-20 minutes
Cauliflower – 20-25 minutes
Corn (cobs left whole with husks) – 35-40 minutes
Green Beans – 15-20 minutes
Potatoes (russet, red, yukon) – 40-45 minutes
Sweet Potatoes – 25-30 minutes
Tomatoes (grape or cherry) – 5-10 minutes
Yellow Squash and Zucchini – 15-20 minutes
How to cook vegetables in the air fryer:
- Spread the vegetables, except the tomatoes, into the basket of your air fryer.
- Heat at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 7-15 minutes, depending on how small you cut your veggies.
- Add the tomatoes and roast for 2 more minutes.
- Remove and serve.
I cut my vegetables quite small and roasted them in the air fryer for 7 minutes before adding the tomatoes. I continued roasting them for an additional 2 minutes. They were perfect.
When serving, spoon some of your chosen grain on the plate and top with the vegetables.
Serve the chicken whole or cut it into slices.
I like slicing it, so it shows off the yummy filling that is stuffed inside.
