“Chicken: it’s what’s for dinner”, right? We’ve all heard it, and most weeknights it’s true, we’re turning to the easy lean protein for our evening meal. To avoid falling into a rut, we’ve got to get creative. Next time you cook up a chicken breast, try stuffing it with your favorite flavors — caprese, fajita, Greek, and more. It’ll be extra tasty, and best of all, impressive. You’ll never have boring chicken dinner again.

We know it can be tricky figuring out what veggies and greens go with a particular dish, and how much to make for alongside your dinner. Avoid the conundrum and stuff all the veggies you want right inside your chicken. Every bite will be perfectly balanced, and individual portion-sized. So convenient! We love how colorful they look too — our primavera stuffed chicken is a veritable rainbow. And don’t worry about all this vegetable talk, we’ve got lots of cheese in there too. While you maybe shouldn’t just eat party appetizers like jalapeño poppers and buffalo dip for dinner, stuff it into chicken and you totally can. Just maybe serve alongside a salad 😉.

Bonus of these recipes? Tons of them are inherently low-carb. You can get all the flavor you love from gluten-filled recipes like fajitas or a cuban sandwich, tucked inside a high protein package.
