Hasselback chicken is a method of preparing the chicken where the chicken breasts are slit halfway through into thin slices that are still connected at the base. The formed pockets are then stuffed with the delicious fillings and the chicken is baked in a casserole dish.
This technique is great to jazz up an overall subtle and plain tasting chicken breast. I love the chicken breast taste but sometimes it is nice to really amp up the flavors by stuffing it and infusing the taste with other ingredients. That is why I love stiffed chicken breasts, chicken gordon blue, Chicken Kiev and this hasselback chicken.
This recipe is quick and easy and absolutely phenomenal. Chicken is stuffed with Spinach, Parmesan, Mozzarella, Cream Cheese, and Bacon. Creamy, savory, smokey, cheese mouthwatering stuffing has unbeatable combination of flavors and textures. It is also Keto friendly, gluten free and low carb.
The stuffing keep the chicken breasts moist and juicy. You get a mouthful of creamy spinach dip and chicken with every bite. It is also a convenient one pot meal which is my favorite. With a minimal prep and no pile of dirty dishes to clean up afterwards this meal is a definite winner.
