These yummy LCHF Boursin Stuffed Chicken Breasts are great for weeknight dinners!
I love stuffed chicken breasts, but they can often be quite dry…
These are not – they’re succulent and packed with flavour. I like to serve this with a fresh herb salad or even sautéed green veg.
My LCHF Boursin Stuffed Chicken Breasts also make great lunchbox snacks when cut into pinwheels…
My kids can be quite fussy when it comes to meat – hubby too – they’re not wild about chicken breast. They find it a bit dry.
I always try and buy chicken fillets with the skin on, but I can only get those from my farm connection. Which is great, but not always available in a pinch…
When making stuffed chicken breasts / fillets, I like to tenderise the meat first so it cooks a bit quicker and avoids becoming dry.
Sometimes I’ll quickly season and pan-sear the fillets on the inside part before stuffing – this also helps to cook quicker and retain that juiciness.
So, let’s get to the recipe, shall we?
This recipe for LCHF Boursin Stuffed Chicken Breasts is quite simple and easy to make.
