Dish Info

This Keto Stuffed Chicken is easily one of the best dinners I've made this year! Cheesy and decadent, this low carb dish works just as well for a weeknight meal as it does for entertaining. This is one that deserves to become a habit!


– 2 tablespoons avocado oil divided – ¼ cup chopped onion – ½ teaspoon minced garlic – 5 ounces baby spinach chopped – 4 ounces goat cheese crumbled – 2 ounces mozzarella cheese grated – 2 pounds boneless chicken breasts or thighs – 1 teaspoon smoked paprika – ½ teaspoon sea salt – ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

– Cut a horizontal slit through the center of the chicken to form a pocket. – Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet to medium heat.

– Next, add onion, and cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add garlic and cook one minute more. – After that, add spinach, and sauté until wilted, about two minutes.

– Season to taste with salt and pepper. – Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool slightly. Stir in cheeses.

– Stuff the chicken pockets with the spinach and cheese mixture using toothpicks to secure. – In a small dish, mix together paprika, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle over the chicken.

– Heat the remaining tablespoon of avocado oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. – Add chicken and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes per side.
