spinach, feta and cream cheese are mixed together and stuffed into chicken breasts, so easy, so good.
spinach stuffed chicken breasts
- 4 chicken breasts
- 8 oz chopped frozen spinach cooked according to package directions and squeezed dry.
- 4 oz feta crumbled (about ½ cup)
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 1 clove garlic diced
- ¼ teaspoon salt divided
- ⅛ teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
preheat oven to 450 degrees
mix the chopped frozen spinach, feta, cream cheese, garlic and half of the salt in a medium sized bowl.
cut a pocket into each chicken breast.
separate the spinach and cheese mixture into four parts, and roll into thick logs.
stuff each log into the pocket you made in the chicken breasts.
season with salt and pepper.
heat the olive oil in an ovenproof pan set over medium high heat, then add the stuffed chicken, "top" side down.
cook for 5 minutes, then flip the chicken over.
place the pan into the oven, and bake for 10 minutes.
if your chicken breasts are extraordinarily thick, cook for 2 to 5 minutes longer, or until juices run clear when you poke the chicken with a fork.
