Chicken is one of the best protein sources when it comes to keto diet. Today we are showing you how to make a very creamy and delicious stuffed chicken breast using common ingredients.

This recipe is great for dinner and lunch as well. We use boneless and skinless medium size breast (around 3 oz or 336 grams). There are so many delicious chicken recipes you can make using this cut of meat.

This dish is very easy to prepare. All you have to do is to prepare the spinach filling first, then stuff it inside the chicken breast and then fry it. We pan fry the chicken meat this time, however you can also bake it in the oven.
