Lasagna Stuffed Chicken

LASAGNA STUFFED CHICKEN DESCRIPTION:

I used to love eating Mom's homemade lasagna as a kid.  However, now that I'm keto, there is no room for traditional noodles in my diet.  It's a good thing all the flavor in lasagna comes from the filling itself, not from the noodles.  This lasagna stuffed chicken recipe totally hits the spot and I don't have to worry about all the carbs!  This particular recipe is higher in protein than fat so I would recommend balancing it out with an additional fat source.

INGREDIENTS:

  1. ½ C ricotta cheese
  2. 2 lbs chicken breast
  3. ½ C. parmesan cheese
  4. 1 egg
  5. 6 oz tomato pesto
  6. 4 oz cheese on top (mozzarella, Colby jack)
  7. Seasonings as desired

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Butterfly your chicken breasts
  2. Fill the breast cavity with the pesto sauce
  3. Mix together the ricotta cheese, 1/2 of the parmesan cheese, the egg, and some seasonings
  4. Add the ricotta mix to the chicken breast cavity
  5. Close the butterflied chicken breasts and add remaining pesto and cheeses on top as well as any desired seasonings
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 35 min.
  7. Enjoy!!!
