Helpful Tips and FAQs

Tenderizing the Chicken.

Tenderizing the chicken not only makes your finished dish more tender it also has other benefits. Pounding the chicken breaks some of the fibrous parts of the chicken breast When you use a meat mallet you are able to get the chicken breast a uniform thickness, allowing for it to bake more evenly. When it bakes more evenly there are no overdone or underdone parts.

For our Low carb Cheesy Stuffed Chicken, I recommend a meat mallet-style tenderizer. Cover your cutting board in plastic wrap first and then place the sliced breast open onto the plastic wrap. Cover the breast with a second piece of plastic wrap and then use the mallet. The two layers of plastic wrap will keep juices and mess from splattering and makes cleanup simple.

Even though you have covered the cutting board with plastic wrap, this is not a substitute for washing and disinfecting. Always wash cutting boards after use. Having a designated cutting board that is for meat only helps prevent cross-contamination. After cutting the meat, rinse the board immediately to prevent bacteria growth. Use a solution of 4 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of bleach scrub with a kitchen scrub brush and allow to dry.

Best Baking Dish to use

A glass baking dish, such as a pyrex dish or a ceramic baking dish seems to provide better results. We serve our Low carb Cheesy Stuffed Chicken in the baking dish, family style. A glass or ceramic dish provides a nicer presentation.

Size of the baking dish– I used a 7-inch by 11-inch glass pyrex baking dish. This size fits the 4 chicken breasts perfectly. Use the size of your choice. Using a large baking dish results in the spreading out of the juices when baking which is not the best choice. Using a dish that allows for a small amount of space around

Storing Instructions

Store this recipe in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. These low-carb stuffed chicken breasts can also be frozen, but because this recipe contains mayonnaise as well as cheese, the consistency may change somewhat.

Substituting the Canola Oil

If you have a preferred cooking oil feel free to use it. The oil is simply used to prevent sticking while baking. Any oil that is not heat-sensitive is fine. The only consideration is that changing oil may alter the nutritional values slightly.

Substituting the Chives

I use chives in this recipe because they add a slight flavour without being overpowering. If you don’t like chives, feel free to omit them or substitute them for another herb of your choosing. If your substitution has a strong flavour, use less than the tablespoon.

Omitting the Honey Mustard Sauce

If honey mustard is not for you or you are unable to get this ingredient, feel free to omit this ingredient. The end result will still be a delicious low carb cheesy stuffed chicken. The sugar-free honey mustard used in this recipe only has .5 grams of carbs for 1 tablespoon, so the nutritional information is not a concern.
