Stuffed Keto Chicken Breast Cooking Directions
Prepare filling: Place fresh mozzarella or cream cheese into mixing bowl along with 1 tsp of Italian seasoning and 2 Tbsp of parmesan cheese. Mix thoroughly.
Prepare chicken: Season chicken with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place in hot skillet and cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes, turn over and cook for another 2 minutes. We are trying to get the chicken almost cooked through.
Place the chicken back into the skillet on medium heat, cooking both sides to a delicious golden brown finish.
Plate the chicken, and top with your favorite pasta or pizza sauce.
Serve with asparagus, broccoli, green beans or your favorite veggie. Caesar Salad would be a great side!
Optional finishes: drizzle with balsamic vinegar reduction, and/or sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese.
