Why You Will Love Stuffed Chicken Breast

We love stuffed chicken breast recipes from Stuffed Chicken Parmesan to Easy Chicken Kiev, and let’s not forget Chicken Pesto Roll-Ups. If you are looking for new chicken dinner ideas, this Spinach Stuffed Chicken is a must-try!

My brother-in-law Vitalik shared this Spinach Chicken with my husband and we lost no time in recreating the dish. Tender chicken stuffed with cream cheese, mozzarella, parmesan, and fresh chopped spinach. It was love at first bite! The filling becomes super creamy and cheesy in the oven and it keeps the chicken breast really juicy.

Ingredients for Stuffed Chicken

The key to making great stuffed chicken breasts is to use even-sized pieces. This way they all finish baking at the same time.

  • Chicken Breast – we use 3 large, boneless, skinless chicken breasts totaling about 1 3/4 to 2 lbs.
  • Seasoning – salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika to season the outside of the chicken.
  • Cream Cheese – use 4 oz of cold block-style cream cheese
  • Mayonnaise – makes the filling extra creamy so it melts easier without curdling. Mayo makes many things better!
  • Garlic – adding fresh garlic cloves to the filling is a must. We use a garlic press for this.
  • Spinach – freshly chopped spinach works great. See our notes below on substituting with frozen.
  • Cheese – the combination of mozzarella and parmesan adds the perfect balance of saltiness and melty cheesiness.
Ingredients for stuffed chicken breast with spinach, cream cheese and shredded cheese

How to Make Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast

  1. Make Filling – use a fork to mash together cream cheese, mayo, minced garlic, and salt. Mash in chopped spinach, shredded mozzarella, and parmesan.
  2. Cut slits in chicken – lay chicken breast flat and use a sharp knife to cut a slit about 3/4 of the way into the chicken.
  3. Stuff chicken – fill each chicken breast with 1/3 of the mixture then seal edges with toothpicks.
  4. Sear chicken – heat a large 10″ oven-safe pan over medium heat. Add 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil and saute chicken 4 minutes per side until browned.
  5. Bake – transfer your hot skillet to the preheated oven at 425˚F for about 10-15 minutes (depending on chicken thickness), or until a thermometer inserted in the deepest part of your chicken registers 165˚F.
Step by step process of making spinach filling and stuffing chicken breasts.

Pro Tip: Make sure you don’t cut all the way through the chicken so the filling is less likely to leak out. If you do, no problem, just seal the other side with a toothpick.

Common Questions:

Do I remove the attached chicken tenders?

Some very large chicken breasts will have a strip of chicken tender meat attached. Remove tenders and use them to make Crispy Chicken Tenders.

Can I use chicken thighs?

Chicken thighs are more difficult to seal and require a little more trimming of fat, but it would work to stuff thighs. Follow the method we used on our Stuffed Chicken Thighs Recipe.

Can I use frozen spinach?

Frozen spinach works if thawed and squeezed dry to remove the excess liquid.

How many people does this serve?

If you cut three chicken breasts in half, you can easily serve 6 people with about 5 oz of chicken each. You can also use 4 small chicken breasts for 4 generous portions, just be sure to reduce the cooking time accordingly with smaller chicken breasts.

Serving Tip: Some of the fillings will escape and turn into tasty pan drippings. Spoon that yummy pan sauce over your chicken when serving.

How to Reheat Stuffed Chicken

Chicken breast is a lean protein so it can be challenging to reheat without it getting tough or having that reheated chicken taste. Stuffed chicken is best served fresh, but it does reheat well. Be sure the chicken reaches 165˚F in the center on a thermometer.

  • Oven – this is the preferred method. Preheat oven to 325˚F, cover with foil to prevent drying out, and bake 10-15 minutes until hot.
  • Stove-top – place in a lightly oiled skillet over low heat, cover, and saute until hot. Flip chicken at least once.
  • Microwave – this is the least desirable method, but if you insist, cut chicken in half so the heat penetrates better. Sprinkle water and any pan juices over your chicken, heat on 50% power, and check at 30-45 second intervals until steaming hot throughout.

      Hi Michelle! All oven-proof frying pans should have a symbol of an oven on the bottom of them that tells you that it is oven-proof. If you cannot find a symbol, it should be fine to use a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Wrapped bacon around chicken and secured with toothpicks. Used Air Fryer. Preheated 3 minutes at 400 F and cooked for 15 minutes, flipping once. Perfect.”

    Instead of using toothpicks to seal the chicken, use spaghetti noodles instead. The noodles will soften while baking.

It’s definitely made a couple times a month- I’m so sloppy I left out the toothpicks altogether- iron skillet so who needs them typically make 4 with the same ingredients-although the first time I did broccoli because it’s what I had also we have done spring mix and spinach and jalapeños once- just can’t go wrong my son always wants them wrapped in bacon and he gets his way tonight but thank you so much!!!

      Made this for dinner tonight and it was absolutely delicious! I didn’t get my pockets cut very evenly so some parts of the chicken were thicker than others. I baked it for 20 minutes after putting it in the oven and it came out perfectly done. There was a little more stuffing left over after I filled the chicken so I just spooned that into the pan when I put it into the oven and it was great for spooning over the finished chicken. My kids gobbled it right up which is high praise! Will make it again soon!!

      Hi Anne, I haven’t tried making ahead that way, but I would be concerned about leaving the chicken not fully cooked through and then cooling it down and reheating it. If not cooking it within an hour or so, it might be safer to finish the dish and then reheat it using the “How to Reheat Stuffed Chicken” instructions in the post.

Wrapped bacon around chicken and secured with toothpicks. Used Air Fryer. Preheated 3 minutes at 400 F and cooked for 15 minutes, flipping once. Perfect.”

    I’ve made this twice now. The first time I had a lot of trouble threading the toothpicks into a stitch that would hold all the good stuff inside. So the second time I cut just much smaller hole towards the “pointy” end of the breast, and threaded the knife inside to create a pocket. Stuffing require using just a tablespoon at a time, and working it in with my fingertips. Then you can “squeeze” it up into the cavity. When the breast was full, I simply folded that pointy tail end over the hole and pinned it with a toothpick. Much better for me, at any rate, and I still got enough spill over for the pan drippings!

    I prepared this for me and my husband tonight, and it came out delicious!

A+ recipe, I will definitely make it again.

Also sitting in the fridge really brings out the garlic. Natasha, any thoughts on making the filling & refrigerating until ready to stuff ? I just mean a few hours earlier.
