Cream Cheese Filling


How to stuff chicken breasts

Mix together cream cheese and seasoning.

Step 1: Prepare the filling.
To get started you will first want to prepare the filling for your chicken. Mix together your softened cream cheese with the shredded mozzarella cheese and seasoning. Then set it aside.

Rinse and wash your spinach and slice half a bell pepper (optional) into strips.

Cut chicken to open down the middle.

Step 2: Slice your chicken.
Next, use a sharp knife to cut your chicken breast down the middle, but not all the way through to create a pocket for your filling. You will want to tilt the knife at an angle while you cut. An angled cut will keep the cheese filling from spilling out while the chicken cooks.

Stuff the chicken with cream cheese.

Step 3: Stuff the chicken breasts.
Then stuff your chicken with the cream cheese mix, spinach, and bell pepper slices. Now that your chicken is stuffed you will want to pat the chicken dry with a paper towel and season your chicken with salt and pepper.

Recipe variation: You can mix some herbed butter with your cream cheese if you want a garlic flavor, blue cheese, lemon and herbs, or rosemary and lemon.

Fill the chicken with spinach and sliced peppers.

How to cook chicken in the slow-cooker

Now it’s time to cook your prepared chicken breasts. Spray the insert of your slow cooker with olive oil and arrange the chicken in a single layer in the slow cooker.

Cover the slow cooker with the lid.

No additional liquid is needed to cook the chicken.

You will want to cook your chicken on LOW heat for 2-3 hours to ensure the chicken doesn’t cook too quickly and dry out. Check the chicken at the 2-hour mark, if the internal temperature is not at 75C/165F let the chicken cook for another 20-30 minutes then check the chicken again.

When your chicken is done, remove the chicken from your slow cooker and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. This is the perfect time to make a quick side dish for your meal.

Sautéed asparagus is an excellent side to compliment your stuffed chicken.

You are ready to serve the stuffed chicken. Make sure you take a look at the most popular keto chicken side dishes. There is a huge variety of cook, no-cook, and ready-made side dish ideas for you.

To give your chicken a boost of color sprinkle each chicken breast with a pinch of paprika and dried or fresh parsley.

The paprika and parsley not only add some extra flavor to your chicken but also brings delicious color to your cooked chicken.

I recommend sprinkling the paprika and parsley on the chicken after it has cooked to ensure it doesn’t wash off while the chicken is gently coking away in your slow cooker.

How to keep chicken juicy and tender

Slow cooker stuffed chicken breast is the perfect meal for a special night in, holiday meal, or even an everyday healthy family meal.

This meal is best eaten right away and not reheated because reheating a whole chicken breast can overcook the chicken. However, when eaten right away the chicken is tender and juicy.

I hope you love this meal. Below you’ll find some ideas for easy and delicious side dishes and more slow cooker recipes!
