For the Chicken:

  • 2 chicken breasts, rinsed and pat dried
  • 1 teaspoon adobo seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (regular and smoked)
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt to taste
  • Ground black pepper to taste

For the Stuffing:

  • 1 cup spinach, minced or finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup three-cheese blend (provolone, mozzarella, and parmesan)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

For the Mashed Potatoes:

  • 2 cups potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Milk as needed
  • Salt to taste
  • Ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Prepare the Chicken: Make a slit in the middle of each chicken breast to create a pocket. Drizzle with oil and apply a mix of adobo, Cajun seasoning, garlic and onion powder, paprika, parsley, and Italian seasoning to all sides. Let it rest to absorb the flavors.
  3. Prepare the Spinach Mixture: In a warm cast iron skillet, add oil and butter over medium heat. Sauté the garlic, being careful not to burn it. Add the spinach, seasoning with salt and pepper. Cook until wilted and then let cool.
  4. Make the Cheese Filling: Combine the room-temperature cream cheese, three-cheese blend, Italian seasoning, and paprika in a bowl. Add the cooled spinach mixture and blend until consistent.
  5. Stuff the Chicken: Spoon the cheese and spinach mixture into the pockets of the chicken breasts. Secure with toothpicks if needed. Sprinkle the tops with extra cheese and parsley or Italian seasoning.
  6. Sear the Chicken: Heat butter and oil in a cast iron skillet. Sear the stuffed chicken breasts on both sides until golden brown.
  7. Bake the Chicken: Transfer the chicken to the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  8. Prepare the Mashed Potatoes: While the chicken is baking, combine mashed potatoes, butter, cream cheese, heavy cream, milk, salt, and pepper. Mix until smooth and creamy.
  9. Serve the Dish: Plate the mashed potatoes along with your choice of vegetables. Top with the Cajun-style spinach stuffed chicken breast, removing the toothpicks before serving.
  10. Enjoy Your Meal: Dig into your culinary masterpiece, savoring the burst of flavors in every bite.
