Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 35 mins
Total Time: 55 mins
Servings: 4 servings
4 medium chicken breasts boneless and skinless
1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach thawed and squeezed dry
2 Tbsps olive oil
1 tbsp garlic, minced and divided
2 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 tsp paprika
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Cut each chicken breast, but don’t cut fully in half lengthwise, but not all the way through.
In a medium bowl, combine the spinach, cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt and pepper and stir until fully combine. Spoon 1/4 of the cheese mixture into the opening of the chicken breasts and secure the opening with toothpicks if desired. Sprinkle the chicken breasts lightly with paprika, salt and pepper.
Add 2 tablespoons oil to an ovenproof skillet over medium high. Place chicken breasts in the pan and cook until they’re golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
Place the skillet in oven and cook until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F., on an instant read thermometer, about 20 to 25 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and serve warm.
