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!

    Looks great, will try this week. How long do you sear/brown the chicken breast? Also could I use Half & Half instead of cream? Thanks

  2. Having made this recipe, would you say that adding paper-thin prosciutto (as a lining for the spinach mix inside the breast or wrapped around the stuffed breast) would be a bridge too far?

    Also, will I have enough sauce for a pasta side? If not, can you recommend an alternative?

  3. This is the best recipe ever we have it at least once a week sometimes twice. It’s mine and my husbands favorite

  4. I am going to attempt to make this tonight or later this week but can I just say that I LOVE this blog. I wish I’d found this sooner! You have sooooo many delicious looking recipes. There is so much variety that I had to share with my friend. I am in awe that this is free information. I really appreciate the time you put into everything from the pictures to the detailed recipes and the presentation. You are a recipe angel! lol Thank you!

  5. Alyssa….I regularly use one of your recipies, and am never disappointed…..I’m confused about your Stuffed Tuscan Garlic Chicken….you talk about adding/making the “creamy”sauce, but never mention what you do with it in the instructions….in the picture you show the chicken breast in the skillet…..after you bake them, than what???

    I tried this recipe for the first time and it was absolutely delicious, thank you so much for sharing I now have a favorite fancy dish to make for my wedding anniversary. I only changed the powder garlic for fresh since I love fresh garlic but other than that wouldn’t change a thing.

  7. I made this dish for my family night and it was a hit. Then i posted pictures on Snapchat and my inbox was flooded with people drooling over it and asking for the recipe! Definitely will be making this again.

    THIS chicken recipe is absolutely FABULOUS! I used one huge breast and the same amount of sauce that was intended for three chicken breasts……it was the prefect amount. I would suggest for three or more breasts, that you should double or triple the sauce recipe. It was an easy-to-make dish and clean-up was minimal.

    You use three chicken breasts but have four servings? Is this a typo?
    Sounds delicious and I will make it for my volunteers on Saturday!

    1. The chicken breasts are large and stuffed and can be cut into half if needed. You can always add another chicken breast so each person has one piece each. Your volunteers are going to love you even more;)! XOXO
