Italian Stuffed Chicken


Everyone has a good stuffed chicken recipe but I really love this Italian Stuffed Chicken recipe. With bold ingredients of chopped olives and/or sundried tomatoes combined with crushed garlic, mixed herbs and soft cheese that gives a smooth and creamy texture.

Top with tomato slices for added flavor and color. This dish is also high in fats and protein and perfect for a keto lover.

Steps to make Italian Stuffed Chicken


Preheat oven


Preheat the oven to 425 °F (220 °C/fan 200 °C/gas 7).


Combine stuffing


In a mixing bowl, mix 1 tablespoons of olives or sundried tomatoes, if using, along with 1 tablespoon of crushed garlic, ½ teaspoon of dried mixed herbs and 100 g of full-fat soft cheese until smooth and combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


Prepare chicken


Using a sharp knife, slice through the length of 2 chicken breasts without cutting all the way through to create a pocket.


Stuff chicken


Evenly stuff each chicken breast with about ¼ of the soft cheese mixture and gently press to close.


Add toppings


Transfer to a greased baking tray and season generously with salt and pepper. Add tomato slices, overlapping over the 4 stuffed chicken breasts. Season again and sprinkle a few mixed herbs. Finally, drizzle with olive oil.




Roast in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes until the chicken is golden and the tomatoes have roasted and shrivelled.




Serve hot with sides of your choice.

I dressed this with a bunch of cheese and no tomatos at all cause I don't like the taste, it goes reallly good with some pasta too.

Akira Sarcona

Squeezed some lime on this to make it kinda zesty then decided to bake some potatoes too for a full meal, perfect.

Coraline Allrich

One of my favorite chicken dishes for sure it's easy too.

Wren Soscia

Going to be grilling the chicken first then slicing it and adding everything in it afterwards before giving it some time to bake too, wish me luck.

Affordable and scrumptious 5 star meal made from home, why am I not surprised?

Didn't add the olives cause olives have a weird after taste but instead swapped it out for some honey pickles which tasted a lot better then had the chicken on some brown rice :)

My husband and I can't get enough of this stuffed chicken we even decided to expierement a bit with it and add some sundried tomatos to the inside.

White wine, this Italian stuffed chicken and a breezy night while eating and drinking on the porch sounds like a good night to me.

Azalea Labhart

Kinda looks undercooked..please people double check that your chicken is fully cooked and not pink at all or you can catch salmonella.

Sandra Koechner

Another fantastic meal made by the amazing Nina, obsessed with your recipes!!

Ariya Sclafani
