Air Fryer Stuffed Chicken Breast


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 4 oz (about 115 g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • Olive oil spray


  1. Prep the Chicken Breasts:
    • Carefully slice each chicken breast horizontally to create a pocket. Be sure not to cut all the way through.
    • Season the chicken breasts inside and out with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and Italian seasoning.
  2. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, chopped spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes until well combined.
  3. Stuff the Chicken Breasts:
    • Fill each chicken breast pocket with the cream cheese mixture. Use toothpicks to secure the edges if necessary.
  4. Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for about 5 minutes.
  5. Cook the Chicken Breasts:
    • Lightly spray the air fryer basket with olive oil spray.
    • Place the stuffed chicken breasts in the basket, making sure they are not touching each other.
    • Lightly spray the tops of the chicken breasts with olive oil spray.
  6. Air Fry the Chicken Breasts:
    • Cook the chicken breasts at 375°F (190°C) for 15-18 minutes, flipping halfway through, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and is golden brown on the outside.
    • If your air fryer is small, you might need to cook in batches.
  7. Serve:
    • Remove the toothpicks and let the chicken breasts rest for a few minutes before serving.


  • Cheese Alternatives: You can use other types of cheese like cheddar or gouda for a different flavor profile.
  • Vegetable Variations: Feel free to add other vegetables to the stuffing, such as bell peppers, mushrooms, or artichoke hearts.
  • Serving Suggestions: Serve the stuffed chicken breasts with a side of steamed vegetables, a fresh salad, or some roasted potatoes.
