This keto stuffed chicken breast recipe has been one of my go-to meals since I started keto – and my family loves them too! It’s a great dinner option with mashed cauliflower on the side or some rice or pasta on the side for the non-keto ones! While many keto fans use chicken thighs often in their keto diet recipes because of the higher fat content, I use chicken breasts more often and add healthy fats – like high quality butter, avocado oil, etc. – so I know more about the nutritional profile of what I’m eating. However, for this recipe, chicken breasts are the way to go!

I experiment with the seasonings and sometimes add a tablespoon of Italian seasoning to the spinach and cheese stuffing mixture. I’ve also sometimes substituted baby kale or used a combination of spinach and kale, which doesn’t affect the flavor much but adds the nutritional powerhouse of kale.

And, if you are a meal prepper, which I highly recommend to keep track when getting started with the keto diet, this keto stuffed chicken breast with spinach also is great for meal prep – you can make a few of them and store them in the fridge for up to three days!

Hi! I created Ketology after struggling for years with hormonal changes and weight gain. As I got older, I found managing my weight and moods became more and more of a struggle.
