Stuffed Tuscan Garlic Chicken are tender and juicy chicken stuffed with mozzarella cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach that gets baked in a creamy garlic sauce. This meal will blow the family away!
I have finally jumped on the stuffed chicken boat. It is mega popular right now and oh boy, why did I wait so long!? I took the ultra mega popular Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken that is on my site and made something incredible. A thick chicken breast gets coated in italian seasoning and stuffed to the brim with mozzarella cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach. It takes no time at all before it is in the oven and on the dinner table for the family to devour.
The chicken gets pan seared before it enters the oven. The cheese just starts to melt and is so ooey gooey delicious. I went back and forth trying to decide if I should bake it in a creamy sauce because the chicken is so delicious on its own. But I made the decision to bake it in a creamy garlic sauce and it was the BEST decision!
As soon as this chicken comes out of the oven you can just see the melty cheese just oozing out of the sides. And the smell of the sun dried tomatoes and seasonings is incredible. My family could not eat this meal fast enough!
This is truly a restaurant quality meal that you can make right at home. You are going to impress even yourself on this one! This is hands down one of the best things that has happened to this blog. Your family is going to go crazy for this recipe just like we did!

This sounds so good! I’m thinking of serving it with mashed potatoes… should I double the sauce so I have “gravy” for the potatoes? Thanks!
I haven’t tried that before but that sounds delicious! Let me know how it turns out!
