Oven Baked Chicken Breasts (keto Recipe)
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (7-8 ounces each)
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 3 ounces chopped fresh spinach leaves stems removed
- 3 ounces cream cheese
- 3/4 ounce (about 1/4 cup) shredded cheddar cheese
- 3/4 ounce (about 1/4 cup) finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes (dry packaged)
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- Preheat the oven to 425 F.
- Slice each chicken breast in half so it’s half as thick as before. The resulting pieces should be no thicker than about 1/2 inch. If moist pat them dry with paper towels.
- Prepare a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Spread out the chicken pieces in a single layer on the parchment paper.
- Season the chicken with half of the salt and pepper. Flip them and season the other side with the remaining salt and pepper. Set aside.
- In a pan on the stovetop cook spinach until wilted. Separately microwave cream cheese until very soft and easily mixed about 20 seconds.
- In a bowl stir together cooked spinach softened cream cheese and all other topping ingredients until well-mixed. Evenly spread the mixture across the tops of the chicken pieces.
- Bake at 425 F until the chicken is cooked through about 20 minutes depending on the size of your chicken pieces. Let it cool at room temperature for about 5 minutes before serving.
