There is a lot of controversy over chicken in the Hungry family. Our preferences vary widely, with Mr. Hungry preferring chicken breast because he’s not a fan of dark meat, Hungry Jr. likes chicken legs, and I prefer the chicken thighs for flavor and texture.
One thing we can all agree on though, is that this keto stuffed chicken breast recipe is AWESOME.
The Hungry dudes aren’t veggie fans either, and even they didn’t mind the spinach in this low carb stuffed chicken breast recipe. Really how can anyone complain – the spinach is bundled in with so much cheese and crispy chicken that you barely notice it!
It’s the stuff keto dinner dreams are made of!
Now I know that some of you are looking longingly at the photos, but already thinking it’s too much work and that you’d never actually make this keto stuffed chicken breast recipe.
I hope you’ll reconsider! While there are a few steps that need to be taken to get this low carb stuffed chicken breast masterpiece right, none of them are really difficult.
You’ll need to pound out some chicken cutlets to make them thin enough to roll, and that’s probably the most time consuming step. The good news is, you can pound out and stuff these chicken breasts, then freeze them so that you always have them on hand to thaw and cook – so make a big batch and you can have cheesy keto stuffed chicken breasts anytime the mood strikes!!
Once you’ve pounded out your breasts, you spoon on some easy filling and then roll them up and press them into an oval shape – then chill for a bit to harden up the center. Bread them, brown them, bake them and then revel in the accolades from family and friends over how delicious they are – and what an awesome cook you are!
This is a totally attainable scenario that will have you winning at domesticity like a boss.
I served these keto stuffed chicken breasts with my easy marinara sauce and it was great. Totally comfort food level with an Italian flair.
BUT…I was also thinking that these low carb stuffed chicken breasts would be amazing with alfredo sauce – can you picture it?!?!? I can taste it in my head, and it’s going to be awesome.
Honestly these stuffed chicken breasts don’t really need a sauce at all if you’re a purist like that – the ooozy cheesy center acts as a sauce all it’s own. Still – smothering chicken in marinara or alfredo is never a bad thing amiright?
So put your big girl (boy) pants on, invest in a meat mallet, and pound yourself some chicken breasts! Then you can stuff them with all sorts of delicious low carb fillings – just make sure this Cheesy Keto Stuffed Chicken Breast recipe is first on your list!
Keto Stuffed Chicken Breast Recipe Notes:
Because the size of chicken breasts will vary, you may be able to cut 2 huge chicken breasts in half lengthwise to get your four cutlets. Or you can trim and pound out 4 smaller breasts.
Even so, cooking times will vary based on thickness and size. I put in a ballpark baking time of 18-22 minutes which worked for me, but if your breasts are larger (tee hee) you may need to cook them much longer.
To really be safe you should test with a meat thermometer and only remove and serve the chicken after the center reads 165 degrees (F).
