Cooking Methods:

  1. Baked: Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Stuff chicken breasts with the potato, pea, and paneer mixture. Place in a baking dish, brush with olive oil, and bake for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  2. Grilled: Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Grill stuffed chicken breasts for 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked through.
  3. Air Fryer: Preheat air fryer to 375°F (190°C). Place stuffed chicken breasts in the air fryer basket and cook for 15-18 minutes, flipping halfway through.
