Extra veggies are never a bad thing, and in this case stuffing chicken with spinach and tomatoes (not only gets you eating another serving of vegetables) but makes this plain dish taste extra-ordinary! That was a little cheesy, I know. Let’s just pretend I’m cooler than I actually am.
What I’m trying to say is this stuffed chicken is absolutely to die for. It’s easy, moist, and jaw dropping -presentation wise. You know what they say, you eat with your eyes, then your nose, then your mouth.
My family absolutely gushed over and fell in love with this dish, so much so that I’m actually making this exact dish again tonight. Trust me, you can’t go wrong with this recipe -and who knows? This may just become your family’s favorite dish too.
So what are we waiting for? Turn up “Dive” by Ed Sheeran and let’s just get right into it! …I’m on an Ed Sheeran kick right now guys…no regrets.
Serves: 4 Prep Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 30 minutes Preheat: 375
- 4 cups of baby spinach
- 4 cloves of garlic, minced
- 12 grape tomatoes, quartered
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 4 chicken breasts, thawed
- 4 tablespoons of feta cheese
- 1 tablespoon of oregano
- Parmesan cheese, to taste
- Salt & pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.
Wash and drain baby spinach in a coriander very well. Go on and shake that thang!
In a large sauce pan over low heat combine olive oil, baby spinach, tomatoes, and minced garlic. Saute until the baby spinach begins to wilt, which will only take a couple minutes. Remove from heat.
Slice the chicken breast lengthwise, about 3/4 of the way through the chicken -essentially creating a pocket. Place chicken breast onto prepared baking dish.
Spoon spinach and tomato mixture with a slotted spoon into each chicken breast ‘pocket’. In each pocket, sprinkle roughly 1 tablespoon of feta cheese.
Top the chicken with oregano, salt, and pepper.
Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until cooked through. This depends on the thickness of the chicken breast, check at 20 minutes and gauge from there.
Once done, sprinkle the tops with parmesan cheese, then dish up and savour your little slice of heaven!
That’s all there is to this spinach stuffed chicken. Pair this with roasted garlic and rosemary mashed potatoes then start ringing the dinner bell because dinner is served!
