This grilled buffalo chicken breast recipe is super simple. All you need are chicken breast, cheese, and some condiments and you’re ready for a tasty and flavorful grilled dish.
I cooked many chicken dishes before, but personally, I think chicken breast is a little bit dry for me. So stuffing cheese inside a chicken breast elevates the dish to a whole new level of culinary delight.
As the chicken cooks, the cheese inside melts, infusing the meat with its rich and creamy flavor. This not only imparts a sumptuous taste but also ensures that the chicken remains moist and tender.
The melted cheese acts as a natural basting agent, preventing the chicken from drying out, which is a common concern with chicken breasts. The result is a harmonious blend of textures and flavors, where the succulence of the chicken is perfectly complemented by the gooey, melted cheese, making every bite a memorable experience.
How to Cook Low Carb Buffalo Chicken Breast on A Grill
Make a 3-inch deep pocket in the side of each chicken breast, being careful not to cut all the way through.
In a bowl, combine melted butter, hot sauce, lemon juice, minced garlic, celery salt, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
Brush the chicken inside and out with the sauce mixture, reserving some for later. Stuff the mozzarella cheese into the pockets of the chicken breasts. Secure the opening with a toothpick.
Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the chicken for about 5 minutes on each side, brushing with the reserved sauce after each flip, until fully cooked and no longer pink inside.
Remove from heat, discard the toothpick, slice, and serve hot. Enjoy!

Keto Grilled Buffalo Chicken Breast
- Slice about a 3-inch deep cut on the side of the chicken. Avoid cutting the chicken in half with the sharp knife.
- Stir the hot sauce, lemon juice, and melted butter in a bowl. Include the celery salt and minced garlic into the mixture. Add a dash of pepper and salt to flavor. With a brush or your hand, season the whole chicken with the mixed sauce. Cover the entire interior and exterior of the meat. Reserve any remaining sauce for later.
- Stuff the shredded mozzarella inside the chicken cuts. Wrap the ends of the chicken over the cut and tuck them inside securely. Push a toothpick through the meat to keep it together.
- Heat the olive oil in a grill pan set over medium-high heat. Grill the chicken on every side for 5 minutes a side. Ensure that the chicken is cooked through and has no pink spots. For every flip of the chicken, brush the cooked sides with the remaining sauce for a more flavorful product.
- Remove from the heat once cooked. Take out the toothpick. Serve in slices and enjoy while hot.
