PREP TIME: 15 minutes
COOK TIME: 25 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 40 minutes
SERVINGS: 4 servings


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts 5-6 ounces each
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon each salt & pepper


  • 3 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 ounces feta cheese crumbled
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 ½ cups fresh spinach finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons red bell pepper finely diced, or tomato
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano


  • Mix all filling ingredients in a bowl.
  • Place chicken on a cutting board and butterfly each chicken breast ¾ of the way through, do not cut all of the way through.
  • Divide filling over the chicken breasts and secure with a toothpick.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 360°F.
  • Rub the outside of the chicken with olive oil and season with paprika, garlic powder, salt & pepper.
  • Place in a single layer in the air fryer and cook 18-22 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165°F with an instant-read thermometer.


I do not add additional salt to the filling as I find the feta to be salty enough. Once mixed, you can taste the filling and add salt and pepper to taste.

This recipe is for 5-6 oz chicken breasts.If your chicken is larger or smaller cooking time will need to be adjusted. Appliances can vary, check the chicken with a thermometer early.

Do not cut the chicken breasts all of the way through. Seal with a toothpick and ensure you remove all of the toothpicks before serving.

Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Reheat in the air fryer until heated through.

No Air Fryer? No Problem! These stuffed chicken breasts can be baked in the oven at 375°F for 32-37 minutes or until they reach 165°F.
