How to Stuff The Chicken Breasts

To get started you will first want to prep 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. 

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.

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. 

Cooking Slow Cooker Chicken

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.

Serving Slow Cooker Keto Stuffed Chicken Breast

You are ready to serve the keto stuffed chicken.

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 it 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.
