How to stuffed chicken breasts

  • Season the chicken generously on both sides.
  • Take a chicken breast and slide a sharp knife about three-quarters of the way through the chicken breast without slicing through the other side.
  • Stuff the chicken breasts and seal with toothpicks or a kabob skewer to contain the filling.

How to make

First step:

  • Take small-medium chicken breasts. According to Thumb rule the smaller the chicken breasts the better and healthier they’ll be. Calmly use Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt & pepper to season both sides of the chicken breasts and slice through to form a small pocket for the cheese.

Stuff the cheese and chicken breasts and then seal it with toothpicks . If you’re too lazy or don’t have toothpicks on hand, simply put the cheese in the chicken and press the edges gently to seal it using your hand. Some of the cheese will drip out of the chicken while baking but it will still taste lovely!

Second Step:

  • Pan sear the chicken breasts until they turn golden. This will give the chicken a beautiful crust. If you’d like some variation. Put 3-4 finely chopped garlic to the pan about 30 seconds before adding the marinara sauce.

Third Step:

  • Top the chicken with marinara sauce and more cheese and heat for about 15 to 20 minutes (depends on the size of chicken). Enjoy this low carb Keto Stuffed Chicken Parmesan with a side of arugula and avocado,
