Cajun-Stuffed Chicken


This Cajun-Stuffed Chicken is a dish that I make each year without fail for my annual New Orleans inspired Mardi Gras feast. I love to gather a bunch of my oldest friends and family together to eat delicious food and to celebrate the spirit of the New Orleans carnival even if we are not there in person. 

This stuffed cajun chicken is a fabulously simple dish when entertaining guests as you can prepare it in advance and simply throw it in a preheated oven for about 25 minutes before you are ready to serve. 

To make Cajun-Stuffed Chicken, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Cajun-Stuffed Chicken


Heat the oven


Preheat the oven to 350 °F.


Heat oil


Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet.


Sauté onions and peppers


Place onions and peppers in the skillet and sauté for 5 minutes until soft. Season to taste with salt and pepper before removing the skillet from the heat and leaving it to cool slightly.


Prepare the chicken breasts


Cut a pocket in each chicken breast using a sharp paring knife.


Stuff the breasts


Divide the vegetable mixture between each chicken breast and top with cheddar.


Season chicken


Sprinkle the chicken generously with Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper.




Arrange the chicken breasts in the skillet and bake in the oven for about 25 minutes until the meat is cooked through.



Serve alongside some red cabbage or veggies of your choice. Enjoy!

Wasn't too sure I'd be able to make this but thanks to the easy steps I was able to follow and nail it on the first try :)

Really delicious even added some sundried tomatos to the inside of it too.

Abbie Stinchfield

Nicely made the bell pepper makes it a bit tangy and spicy and the cajun seasoning makes the meat flavorful without waiting an hour for the seasoning to soak in.

Instead of cheddar cheese I used goat cheese cause I'm lactose intolherant, really yummy.

Goes great with some brown rice and a little bit of squeezed lemon or lime juice on the top, would recommend.

It was alright but bell pepper overpowered the chicken flavor.

Skylynn Onasch

Perfect! I made this and some bread pudding for dessert too, both go great with white wine.

Much prefer the cajun pasta it's way more filling than this and you don't need a second thing with it.
