I love serving stuffed chicken breast with a side of cauliflower rice, roasted broccoli, zucchini noodles or low carb mashed “potatoes”.

It’s a divine and versatile dinner that’s ready in less than 35 minutes, and my family adores it.

Stuffed chicken breast is classic comfort food and it’s finger-licking good. I’m sure there will be no leftovers!

Ingredients for Creamy Spinach Stuffed Chicken

If you’re wondering what ingredient you’ll need to make this magic creamy chicken you’ve come to the right place. In this recipe we use only common ingredients that when combined together are super flavorful:

  • Chicken breast
  • Cream cheese
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh or Frozen Spinach
  • Seasonings: chili powder or paprika, garlic powder, onion powder
  • Freshly minced garlic

How to Make Stuffed Chicken Breast

It’s so easy to make stuffed chicken breasts. Here’s everything to do:

  1. Make the cheese and spinach filling. If using frozen spinach thaw completely and then cook it to remove as much moisture as possible. 
  2. Butterfly the chicken breast, so you create a pocket in the middle of your meat. 
  3. Fill each chicken breast with 1/4 of the filling and secure with toothpicks. 
  4. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes at 375F. If you have a meat thermometer the internal temperature of the chicken should be 165° F (75° Celsius) when inserted in the thickest part.

  1. I’m making this for dinner tonight, but I’m confused about what temperature the chicken should be baked at for 25-30 minutes? My guess would be 350 degrees F, but I’d like to know before I mess the recipe up. Thanks!

        So delicious we’ve made this a few times and its a hit! We even wrapped the chicken in bacon for a personal touch!

    I made this recipe for dinner tonight and it was perfection. It had so much delicious flavors and came out perfectly cooked after baking 30 mins at 375 degrees. It was a big hit with my husband and father in law. I’m saving this recipe to make again soon!!

  3. 5 stars
    Very good recipe! Quick, easy and delicious! I made 1 adjustment -I used smokey paprika instead and it complimented very well. Thanks for sharing!
