Cream Cheese Stuffed Everything Chicken

Cream Cheese Stuffed Everything Chicken

Holy flavor, Batman. This Cream Cheese Stuffed Everything Chicken is anything but your standard boring chicken breast. These breasts are overflowing with smooth, rich cream cheese and coated with a crust of garlic, onions, sea salt, toasted sesame and poppy seeds. It’s all the flavors you love from an everything bagel, but as a low carb, high protein chicken dish you’ll want to make again and again.

Cream Cheese Stuffed Everything Chicken

These Cream Cheese Stuffed Everything Chicken breasts come together really easily and pretty quickly, so they’re a perfect weeknight meal. You can also easily double or triple the recipe to serve your whole family. The chicken goes great with a side of roasted veggies, a salad, some cheesy broccoli or some wild rice. The possibilities are endless!

Cream Cheese Stuffed Everything Chicken

Yield: 2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 (6 oz each) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 2 teaspoons dried chopped/minced onion (I’ve seen it called both, found with the spices)
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, slice the breasts from the side (creating a top and bottom) almost all the way through. Open each breast at the slit and place 1 oz cream cheese inside. Spread cheese across the surface and close the breast, folding the top half back over the cream cheese.
  3. Place the stuffed breasts in a Ziploc bag and add the flour. Lightly flip the bag around until chicken is coated with flour. Place the beaten egg white in a shallow dish. In a second shallow dish, mix the sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried onion, salt and garlic. Remove each rolled breast from the flour bag and dip it in the egg white, turning to coat. Then move the coated breast to the dish of seed mixture and coat it on all sides.
  4. In a small skillet, add the oil and bring over medium-high heat. Add the stuffed and coated chicken breasts to the pan and cook for about 1 minute until the seeds on the bottom are golden. Flip the breasts and cook for another minute on the other side. Transfer the breasts to the prepared baking sheet and place in the pre-heated oven. Bake for 30-35 minutes until chicken is fully cooked through.

    Your chicken recipes are always the greatest, and I’ve made most of them. They were all very delicious, and worthy to serve to company…. since they also have ‘eye-appeal’. I’ll defiantly make this chicken as soon as I purchase some more poppy seeds. I’m sure we’ll love it. Thanks Emily!

    This recipe is really great! It turned out perfectly, great step-by-step instructions and it tastes as good as it looks in Emily’s photos. Mine looked a bit messier! But it was a big hit in my house. I’ve already made it twice. Thanks Emily!

    Made this tonight and it was oh so tasty! My family loved how tender the chicken was! After I seared the chicken, I covered it with foil to bake. They were thinner chicken breasts so 20 minutes did the trick, and they stayed really tender. The only thing I will do differently next time is mix the everything toppings in small batches for each piece of chicken. Thanks for this awesome recipe. Definitely putting this one in the rotation!

    As soon as my husband found out this was a thing he requested it, so I made it on Monday and it did not disappoint! Incredible flavor!! Now I am a carb LOVER – I seriously have a carb with every meal, and have to have a carb side with every dinner. I did not even miss them!! Hubby said he wants this as his birthday dinner!! I am absolutely loving your recipes – and hoping having all these yummy WW friendly comfort food recipes will keep me on track through the winter!! 🙂

    We are gluten free. I’m going to try this with cornstarch instead of the flour.
    Thanks!

    I made this tonight. I substituted the cream cheese with the spreadable cream cheese that has green onions in it. It was delicious. I got rave reviews from my daughter and even my picky granddaughter. Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe.

    I made this for the first time last Monday and we’ve already had it twice. We LOVE this recipe in our house! I will say that it was a little too onion-y for me so the next time we made it I decreased the amount of onion on my piece of chicken (and put the extra on my fiance’s) and it was perfect. Definitely keeping this one in our house!

    Making this tonight…and so disappointed that all the lovely coating got stuck on my cast iron skillet during the browning/toasting phase. Boo. I oiled the pan before, but maybe this is best done in a non-stick pan next time.

    It’s out of the oven now, cooked nicely, tastes good but looks awful without the coating!

    Made this for dinner tonight, with a Weight Watcher’s Zucchini Casserole and a side of noodles, it was delicious. My husband loved it. Will be making this again!!

    Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe.

    Do the poppy seeds make or break this? It’s the only thing I don’t have on hand but will run to the store if its absolutely needed. Thanks!

    • Emily Bites replied: — March 23rd, 2016 @ 8:03 pm

      Someone on instagram posted it once without poppy seeds and they still seemed to like it 🙂

    Kelly — March 28, 2016 @ 8:47 am

    This was very good. I did it without the poppy or sesame seeds, as I couldn’t find them in the crowded grocery store. But, I will def try it with them next time.

    Love, love loved this recipe. I didn’t have the dried onions so I used french fried onions instead. This recipe was declared a keeper by my husband and son.

    Sarah — April 11, 2016 @ 11:00 am

    Can these be made ahead and frozen? If so, how far do I go and prepare it before freezing? Thank you!!!

    • Emily Bites replied: — April 12th, 2016 @ 1:46 pm

      Hi Sarah,
      I very rarely freeze my leftovers, so I am in no way an expert on freezing. The best way for you to find out is to try freezing it! If you do, please report back in the comments because there are likely other readers wondering the same thing. I’ll appreciate you testing it out! 🙂

    Do you think these would be Grill-able?

    • Emily Bites replied: — April 20th, 2016 @ 11:52 am

      Hm. I’m honestly not sure because I’ve never tried it. I’d be a little concerned about the coating getting lost? If you try it, definitely report back!

    I made this for the second time tonight and it it sooooo GOOD!! And so easy! I used the chicken cutlets, as I prefer thinner chicken, and just stuffed them and folded over in half. Just reduced the time by a few minutes and they came out delicious! Definitely a keeper!

    This is one of my favorite recipes! I’ve made it several times and most recently last week I made it for my sister and her husband and they both loved it too! I don’t think I’ve tried one of your recipes that I haven’t liked yet, they’re all really great! I also love that you have the Weight Watchers Smart Points already figured out, it’s very helpful!

    I’ll be making this one again. The only thing I’ll do differently was also mentioned in a previous comment. Next time I’ll divide the coating into separate portions for each side of the chicken before I dip them. After dipping in the egg almost all of my coating stuck on the first side of the first piece of chicken I dipped. I had to kind of scrape it off and smooth it back around. But the flavor was spot on! Thanks Emily!

    Emily — February 7, 2017 @ 7:54 pm

    Loved this chicken! Only problem I ran into was the first chicken breast took up all the seed mixture and I had to go back and make more for the second breast. But my husband and I both enjoyed! Thank you!

    There is now “Everything Seasoning” sold at Trader Joes, do you think that could be used as a shortcut for this recipe?

    • Emily Bites replied: — April 19th, 2017 @ 9:53 am

      Hi Stacy, I haven’t tried it so I can’t say whether the ratio of ingredients is the same as mine flavor-wise, but I’ve seen a bunch of people make my check in with the Trader Joe’s seasoning on Instagram and they seemed to like it! I don’t know that it would be a big time saver because it doesn’t take long to mix these ingredients together but if you already have some on hand it should work!

    I’m super pumped to try this. 🙂 IT. LOOKS. AMAZING!

    However, I put in recipe builder (12 oz boneless, skinless, chix breast) and then the generic for everything else and I come up with 8SP per serving. 🙁
