Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts approximately 2 lbs.
  • 4 oz. fresh baby spinach
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 2 oz. feta cheese crumbles
  • 2 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil

Seasoning ingredients:

  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. cumin powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder

Instructions

  • Mix all of the seasoning ingredients together and set aside.
  • Roughly chop the baby spinach and place it into a mixing bowl. Add the cream cheese, feta, and mozzarella. Massage the spinach with your hands, until well combined (it should look like thick paste).
  • Using a sharp knife, cut a pocket into the side of each chicken breast.
  • Divide the spinach stuffing into four equal parts and spoon it into the chicken pockets. Using toothpicks, secure the stuffing inside.
  • Generously season the chicken with the spice mix and brush with olive oil on both sides.
  • Bake the chicken in a preheated oven at 400ºF for 25-30 minutes, depending on how large your chicken breasts are.
