Baked Stuffed Chicken Breast With Creamy Spinach

Baked Stuffed Chicken Breast With Creamy Spinach

Ingredients for 4 stuffed chicken breasts

* Optional Substitution Note
  • Creamy Spinach
    • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic, minced
    • 1/2 cup white onion, chopped
    • 1 1/4 cups frozen spinach, chopped (I used Kroger frozen chopped spinach)
    • 5 oz Greek yogurt cream cheese (I used Kroger Greek cream cheese)
      • Substitute: reduced fat cream cheese; goat cheese
    • 2 teaspoons cumin
    • 2 tablespoons fresh dill (or more/less to taste)
    • pinch of sea salt & pepper
  • four ~6oz (1 1/2lb) chicken breasts, skinless


Step 1

Set oven to 410F / 210C.

Step 2

In a bowl, mix together the ingredients for the creamy spinach. Season to taste with sea salt & pepper. Pro-Tip: if you want to make the spinach creamier, then allow the spinach to thaw at room temperature, then place it in a paper towel and squeeze out the excess water.

Step 3

Pat dry the chicken breast using a paper towel.  Then, carefully slice the chicken breast down it’s side to create a deep pocket.  Be careful not to completely remove the top.

Step 4

Stuff the chicken with a few tablespoons of the creamy spinach, about two (2).  Add a pinch of sea salt & pepper to the top of the stuffed chicken breast, then place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Lightly spray the top of the chicken breast

Step 5

Bake in the oven for 22 to 25 minutes.  To help brown the top of the chicken, set the oven to broil for the last 1 to 2 minutes.

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget.
