This Spinach Stuffed Chicken is a delicious combination of chopped spinach, herb cream cheese, mozzarella, Parmesan and garlic with a perfect blend of spices seared into golden chicken breasts. This recipe comes together quickly and it is one of our favorite stuffed chicken recipes. I love to serve this with Duchess Potatoes, Roasted Red Potatoes or Easy Fondant Potatoes.

How to Make Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix together chopped spinach, herb cream cheese, mozzarella, Parmesan, mayonnaise, and minced garlic; set aside.
  2. Cut pockets in your chicken breast lengthwise using a sharp knife. Take your time and be careful not to cut through the top, bottom or opposite side of the chicken breast. Spoon the spinach mixture in and secure with 1-2 toothpicks.
  3. In a small bowl combine garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, marjoram, paprika and cayenne. Rub the spice mixture into the stuffed chicken breasts on both sides.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a large ovenproof skillet. Cook the chicken until golden brown on both sides; about 4 minutes per side. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook for 7-12 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. After removing the chicken from the oven let it rest for 7-10 minutes.
