Spinach Tomato Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast

No boring chicken breasts here! I knew this spinach-tomato-feta mixture, inspired by my stuffed portobello recipe from the Skinnytaste Air Fryer Cookbook, would be amazing stuffed in a chicken breast. This dish has flavor overload. Not to mention, it’s high in protein and low in carbs – a filling meal in one! If you want, add a side salad.

Spinach Tomato and Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast

Stuffed Chicken Ingredients:

This chicken is packed with delicious Italian ingredients:

  • Veggies: Sun dried tomatoes, spinach, shallots, and garlic
  • Cheese: Feta and Parmesan
  • Herbs: Basil and oregano
  • Staples: Panko, salt, and olive oil

How To Stuff

After you slice a pocket into the sides of the chicken breasts, put ¾ cup of the veggie/cheese mixture into each piece. If needed, you can use a toothpick to keep the chicken together.

Next, sear the chicken on both sides for a couple of minutes in a cast iron skillet and then transfer to the oven to bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 425 degrees. Cook until a thermometer inserted into the chicken reaches 165 degrees.

Tips for Spinach Tomato Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast:

  • Look for organic chicken, which typically has smaller breasts.
  • Be careful not to cut your chicken breast all the way through.
  • Chop your ingredients small so they can all fit inside the chicken.
  • If you don’t have an oven-safe or cast iron skillet, sear the chicken in a skillet first, and then transfer to an oven-safe dish.
  • Refrigerate leftovers for up to four days.
  • To freeze the leftovers, transfer to a freezer-safe container and freeze for up to three months.

This Spinach Tomato Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast is filled with a flavorful spinach, sun dried tomato, and feta cheese mixture, seared in a skillet, and then baked to perfection.

  • 4 organic boneless, skinless chicken breasts, about 6 oz each
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Filling:

  • 1 cup baby spinach, chopped
  • 2/3 cup sundried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped
  • 2/3 cups crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 medium shallot, chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons plain or gluten-free panko
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Use a sharp knife to slice a pocket into the sides of each chicken breast. Make sure you don’t cut all the way through, just enough to create a place for the spinach mixture to go.

  • Season both sides of each chicken breast with 3/4 teaspoon salt, paprika and garlic powder. Set aside.

  • In a medium bowl combine the sun dried tomatoes, spinach, feta cheese, shallots, garlic, basil, panko, oregano, parmesan cheese, salt and 1/2 tablespoon olive oil.

  • Mix well and set aside.

  • Divide spinach mixture between the chicken breasts and stuff into each, about 3/4 cup each. If needed, you can use toothpicks to close chicken breast.

  • Heat a large, oven-safe or cast iron skillet over medium heat.

  • Add the remaining oil and once hot, sear the chicken breasts on each side for about 2 to 3 minutes, until browned.

  • Transfer skillet to oven and finish cooking 12 to 15 minutes, until chicken reaches 165 degrees F.

  • Remove from oven and tent with foil for 5 minutes before eating.

  • Remove toothpicks and eat right away.
