Scrumptious Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts with Cream Cheese are wrapped in bacon for extra delicious flavors! Make this perfect easy dish for your family and guests.
Looking for more easy, delicious chicken recipes? Try this Caprese Stuffed Chicken, this Mayo Parmesan Chicken or this Lemon Parmesan Chicken too!
For this easy recipe, all you have to do is mix the spinach, cream cheese, parmesan, garlic, and chives together. Slice the chicken down the side to butterfly it. Put ¼ of the mixture in each piece of chicken. Finish with wrapping each breast in bacon, which is the best part!
Also, you must know it is very easy to prepare but looks like you slaved over a fancy looking dish. I got several “ooh’s and ahh’s”. Think of making this the next time you are having dinner guests. 🙂
How Do You Make these Stuffed Chicken Breasts?
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Place each chicken breast on a flat surface. With your hand placed flat on each piece, cut about ¾ quarter of the way through.(careful not to cut all the way through)
Blend spinach, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, chives and garlic in medium bowl.
Spoon ¼ of cheese mixture into the middle of the cut chicken breasts
Wrap each breast with 2 slices of bacon.
Arrange chicken breasts on baking sheet.
Then turn the temperature up to 400 degrees F (or on low broil) and cook for about 15 more minutes to get the bacon nice and crispy.
Cook for 30-40 minutes.
What to serve with Spinach Stuffed Chicken?
I served our stuffed chicken breasts along with simple roasted potatoes and green peas with sautéed onions.
I have also served it with mashed cauliflower or butternut squash with roasted veggies too.

Omg, this sounds so good! I have to make it, thank you!
Recipe sounds absolutely amazing. Could I use bagged fresh spinach.? If so would the directions be any different? I soooo want to try this recipe soon!!!!
Oh absolutely! I would sauté it a bag of baby spinach in a tad of olive oil until it’s wilted. It would be perfect!
Been fixing this for years it is the best stuff you’ll ever eat
I love this recipe it definetly taste good and worth a try.
I tried it and I can say that it’s a-freakin-mazing. I used beef bacon.
I’m so glad you loved it!!
Great r recipe! I didn’t have cream cheese so I used some mayo and fresh spinach that I sautéed.
Turned out great!
Cream cheese makes all the difference
I cant wait to try this! My question is how well do they “reheat”? Every year a group of us rent a house on the lake in wine country and I bring dinner. After a long day of wine tasting we go back to the house and whatever I have prepared that year I just pop into the oven to heat and we have dinner! Would this be something I could do a head and just heat?
That sounds like so much fun! Although, I have never made ahead myself, I would think that it would be just fine. You may want to spray with a little oil to help the bacon crisp up again. Have a great trip!
Excellent recipe! Highly recommend anyone to try this.
Delicious! Great recipe. I will definitely make this again. I used Kite Hill dairy free cream cheese with feta instead if Parmesan. Family loved it.
Wonderful!! I love it with feta so much!
I have made this twice now and it always turns out perfect.
What would be a good side dish to go with this?
These easy Roasted potatoes are my favorite side with this.
Absolutely a ‘keeper!’ I will be making this again – loved it!
Your recipe is featured on Full Plate Thursday this week. Hope you have a great week and enjoy your new Red Plate!
Thank you so much Miz Helen! 🙂
I want to try this so much! Do you think I could substitute turkey bacon or if I have to just use toothpicks to keep them together? I have recently developed a pork allergy and can’t have regular bacon!
Oh yes you could definitely use turkey bacon! Toothpicks would be perfect too 🙂
Been looking for a good stuffed chicken breast recipe since Disneyland discontinued theirs on the Blue Bayou Restaurant Menu. Many thanks for linking up at Sunday’s Down Under!!!
Yummy!!! I love everything about these, plus your photos are awesome!
Oh my word!!! This looks amazing. I have to agree bacon does make the house smell divine. Nothing better 🙂

What a gorgeous recipe, Sherri. Your Spinach Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts look so delicious and they are elegant enough for a dinner party too. Thank you for sharing with us at the Hearth and Soul hop.
What a delicious way to include spinach in your meal! I think even my picky husband wouldn’t complain about this 🙂
I’m hosting a link party over on my blog and we’d love for you to stop by and link up with us! http://winsteadwandering.com/alder-collective-link-party-no-2/
This looks really delicious. I made a recipe similar to this for my family about a month ago using sundried tomatoes and spinach, and they tasted awesome, but didn’t hold together well. The bacon is a great way to keep them together and who doesn’t love bacon!? Looking forward to trying this recipe.
