PIN Everything Bagel Chicken

I recently discovered everything bagel seasoning and, honestly, now nothing is safe.

I love it on eggs or avocado toast, if I am being basic.

Or, I like to jazz up some roasted salmon with everything bagel spice or everything bagel chips. There isnt any food I have met that isnt made just a little better with everything bagel seasoning.

ESPECIALLY when cream cheese is in the mix like this healthy little weeknight dinner that got 5 stars from the Hubs!

What is Everything Bagel Seasoning made of?

Have you heard of everything bagels? Id be SUPER surprised if your answer is no! But if it is, dont worry because Im going to fill you in on everything you need to know about it! Its the PERF seasoning for bagels, breads, salads, you name it! I love sprinkling it on sandwiches like Mexican Avocado Spread Sandwiches to add that extra flavor to finish them off! This is why I love it- because you can jazz up so many simple recipes just by adding a dash or two of it!

The combination of spices is just MAGIC:

  • Poppy seeds
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds
  • Dried Garlic
  • Dried Onion
  • Coarse Salt

How to Butterfly a Chicken Breast

There are so many ways to prepare chicken before it is cooked, and this has got to be one of my favorites! A butterflied chicken breast leaves 2 thinner slices that I find really easy to work with.

To butterfly a chicken breast, simply place one hand on top of the chicken breast. With your dominant hand and a sharp knife, carefully slice into the chicken breast horizontally, until you are almost all of the way through.

Be sure to leave a small portion uncut so that the 2 halves remain attached.

How to make Everything Bagel Chicken


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butterfly your chicken breast by slicing it through horizontally not quite all the way, ensuring that it is still attached. Open up the chicken breast and season it with salt.


Sprinkle the everything bagel seasoning generously all over all sides of the chicken breast.

Roll and Secure

Put 1 tablespoon of cream cheese at the end of each chicken breast, then spread it out on the meat. Roll up each chicken breast and secure them with toothpicks.


Heat the oil in a large oven safe frying pan on medium high heat. Sear the chicken until it looks golden brown on both sides (2-3 minutes per side).


Pop your pan in the oven and cook until the chicken is no longer pink and an oven safe thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit. This should take approximately 15-20 minutes.
