Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast is a 3 INGREDIENT CHICKEN RECIPE that’s healthy (around 400 calories per chicken breast), made in under 30 minutes, and done in just ONE PAN! Chicken stuffed with simple spinach dip is one of our all-time favorite Easy Chicken Breast Recipes
This stuffed chicken recipe is one of our favorites!
Spinach Stuffed Chicken has quickly become one of my all-time favorite recipes. I love all the recipes I post on Cookie Rookie (at this point we are over 1000…is not that CRAZY?!), but some really stick out to me as exciting right from the moment they’re made.
Just like those recipes, I had a feeling that this easy recipe would be a reader favorite. I was right!
This 3 INGREDIENT CHICKEN recipe is stuffed with a mix of sautéed spinach mixed with Boursin Cheese, giving it the taste of spinach dip. It made me so excited when planning it because I knew it would be simple, flavorful, CHEESY, easy…all the best things. You only have one pot to clean up and it works like a dream for leftovers. What’s not to love? Let’s dig in.
The hack part of this Easy Chicken Breast Recipe comes in when making the “spinach dip”. I realized that you could pretty much make spinach dip with just some Boursin cheese and sautéed spinach. Am I right? Cheesy, herby, amazing goodness.
Spinach Dip is the perfect compliment to chicken and you can use as little or as much as you’d like. If you buy a pre-made spinach dip it comes with all sorts of additives we don’t need. Making our own with just baby spinach and herbed cream cheese is the way to go!
This is one of the best-stuffed chicken recipes I have ever tried! (Second only to our Enchilada Stuffed Chicken Skillet!)
If you want to keep this dish relatively healthy (around 400 calories per chicken breast!), you can use just a bit of the Boursin mixture and still have a creamy amazing dinner. You could also make Homemade Boursin Cheese using non-fat cream cheese and have even fewer calories!
If you want to spoil yourself (and you know this is how I hope you enjoy it) you should really lather it on and let it ooze out while cooking…creating an amazing cheesy buttery sauce at the bottom of the skillet. Serve this bad boy over rice and you’re in business!
Even when using over 1 tablespoon per chicken breast this recipe is still around 400 calories per serving. Winning! Most Stuffed Chicken Recipes aren’t this low in calories! You can feel good about serving this to your family
A delicious 3 ingredient chicken recipe–I promise it’s not too good to be true!
I’m a tad obsessed with this one-pot meal. If you don’t use all of the “spinach dips” keep the extra in the fridge and use it on anything and everything for the next week! I love mine spread on baked potatoes, used as a dip for crackers, on STEAK (omg on the steak)…anything. You’re gonna love it!
Your chicken is fully cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 165F. On this Stuffed Chicken Breast Recipe, be sure you are testing the temp of the actual meat, not the spinach dip stuffing
Since you are cutting in half and stuffing with cheese, each side of the chicken is relatively thin. This means each side will cook at a shorter time than you might be used to. We found each side took about 3-4 minutes to cook all the way through (ZERO pinks) but it’s good to check your internal temperature as referenced above.
Boursin cheese is one of my favorite cheeses ever! It is a garlic and herb cream cheese style spread that can be found in your local grocer’s gourmet cheese section, or usually by the cream cheese. If you haven’t tried it, today is the day! We use it all the time in recipes like Basil Cream Chicken, Garlic Herb Scalloped Potatoes, and Pancetta Wrapped Chicken Roll-Ups. Boursin Cheese makes this Spinach Stuffed Chicken one of the BEST Boursin Stuffed Chicken Recipes we have ever tried.
This Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast has quickly become one of our favorite Chicken Breast Recipes because it is easy, flavorful, quick, and fool-proof. AND ONLY 3 INGREDIENTS! I just can’t get over that.
If you want to make this a FOUR ingredient recipe, you can add a bit of white wine. You won’t regret it. That being said, it’s not necessary. You’re good to go with just three…3…ingredients?!
Is this recipe too good to be true? NOT AT ALL! I hope you make it today and let me know how you like it!
This Baked Chicken Recipe is a family favorite because it’s easy, cheesy, and overall pretty good for you! With only 400 calories per chicken breast, no one will be complaining!
