Lasagna stuffed chicken is a tasty way to get your lasagna fix without eating a bunch of carbs! Skip the noodles and stuff your lasagna right inside a chicken breast. Low carb and family friendly, too!
My family has been on a major Italian food kick lately. Always wanting chicken Alfredo and spaghetti and lasagna.
I don’t mind, because I feel like there are plenty of Italian low carb foods. You’ve just got to get a little creative!
Obviously, zucchini noodles make spaghetti night super simple.
Chicken Alfredo can be made and served over broccoli instead of pasta.
And lasagna? Stuff it in your chicken and skip all carbs!

How to make mozzarella stuffed chicken breast:
First, you’ll want to slice into your chicken using a sharp knife. Place one hand on top of the chicken breast to hold it steady and use the other hand to carefully cut a deep pocket into the side of the chicken.
Drizzle chicken with a little olive oil and then season with some Italian seasoning and garlic powder.
Next, you’ll want to prepare your filling.
Ricotta, mozzrella, parsley – all of the good stuff from a lasagna is going into this filling.
Fill the chicken with the cheese mixture and then spread some marinara on top.
I use Rao’s marinara (affiliate link) pretty exclusively these days. It’s the lowest carb marinara I’ve found, but more than that it’s actually the best tasting. I was using Rao’s before I was watching carbs, so I was pretty excited to see that it was also keto friendly.
Pop this into a 375 degree oven for about 30 minutes and then pull it out and pile on some mozzarella.
Back into the oven for another 5 minutes or until the mozzarella is good and melty and the chicken has cooked through.

This chicken is rich and hearty, so I like to keep my side dishes simple.
A side salad with my homemade ranch dressing goes with pretty much everything.
Zoodles covered in a little marinara or tossed in garlic butter are a great option.
Steamed broccoli goes great with this as well!
