Keto Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Cooking Time: 25 minutes

Serves: 4

Difficulty: Intermediate

Course: Main Course

Cuisine: Keto / Low-Carb

kcal: Approximately 350 kcal per serving


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese (or cream cheese for a creamier filling)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Toothpicks or kitchen twine (to secure the stuffed chicken)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the chopped spinach, ricotta cheese (or cream cheese), grated Parmesan cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, minced garlic, dried basil, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Mix everything until well combined to create the stuffing for the chicken.
  3. To prepare the chicken breasts for stuffing, make a pocket by cutting a slit lengthwise into the side of each chicken breast. Be careful not to cut all the way through. The pocket should be large enough to hold the stuffing.
  4. Stuff each chicken breast pocket with the spinach and cheese mixture. Press down gently to ensure the filling is evenly distributed.
  5. Use toothpicks or kitchen twine to secure the opening of each stuffed chicken breast. This will help keep the filling inside while cooking.
  6. Season both sides of the stuffed chicken breasts with salt and black pepper.
  7. In an oven-safe skillet or a baking dish, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  8. Once the oil is hot, add the stuffed chicken breasts to the skillet or baking dish. Cook them for about 2-3 minutes on each side until they are lightly browned.
  9. Transfer the skillet or baking dish to the preheated oven and bake the stuffed chicken breasts for 15-20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) and the chicken is fully cooked.
  10. Once the stuffed chicken breasts are done baking, remove them from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
  11. Optional: If using toothpicks to secure the filling, remember to remove them before serving.

Note: Feel free to add other keto-friendly ingredients to the stuffing, such as sun-dried tomatoes or chopped artichoke hearts for extra flavor.
