It’s no surprise that chicken breast is such a popular dinner choice for so many families. It’s mild taste & texture, lean and packed with protein. It’s also well loved by children as well as adults, making it a great week-night dinner menu option.

But…we get bored. Of course we do! You get stuck in a rut of cooking chicken the same ol’ way you always have, and it’s time to get reinvigorated with a recipe that’s gonna kick your chicken breasts up a notch.

Originally this was conceived by trying to find a low-carb option for enjoying fajitas. Since fajitas get almost all their carbs from their tortilla wrappings, it made the most sense to eliminate them completely. So, with all the vegetables of a fajita, plus cheese, packed right into the chicken breast centre and cooked together, a new form of fajita was born.

Stuffed chicken is always an impressive meal to serve, and this one you can side however you please. Going low-carb? try it paired with our Mexican Cauliflower Rice recipe!

However you decide to enjoy it, this is an easy yet impressive weeknight meal option that everyone will love!
