#Stuffed #Chicken #Breast #Spinach #Cheese #Sun-Dried #Tomatoes

Cooking a stuffed chicken breast may sound complicated, but it’s easier than you’d think. I’m always looking for new and exciting ways to cook a basic chicken breast and have found that by stuffing them I can easily incorporate a lot of flavor.



Ingredients

  • 4 large chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • 4 tbsp cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup sundried tomatoes
  • ½ cup roughly chopped spinach
  • ¼ cup parsley, minced

direction

  1. Heat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Place the chicken on a cutting board. With a sharp knife, carefully cut a pocket into the side of the chicken breasts. Take care not to cut all the way through. You are creating a "pocket" for all the filling to bake in.
  3. Season the chicken with salt, inside and out.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the garlic, pesto, cream cheese and mozzarella. Set aside.
  5. Layer the inside pockets of your chicken with the cream cheese mixture, sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. Secure the opening with toothpicks if desired.
  6. Heat the olive oil in a cast iron pan, or oven proof skillet over medium heat. Sear the chicken on both sides for 3-4 minutes each, until golden brown.
  7. Place all four breasts back into the pan (or on a baking sheet if you are bot using an oven proof skillet) and place them in the oven until the internal temperature of the chicken breast is 165°F. This takes about 16-18 minutes longer depending on the size of the breast.
