  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 8 ounces fresh spinach (bag of, can substitute with frozen spinach)
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese (bag of, can substitute with frozen spinach)
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 clove garlic (bag of, can substitute with frozen spinach)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (bag of, can substitute with frozen spinach)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • In a large sauté pan over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Add the contents of the 8 oz.
  • bag of fresh spinach and use a wooden spoon to gently stir for 2-3 minutes until all spinach is wilted.
  • If the pan is too small to hold all of the spinach, start with half a bag, allow it to wilt, and add the remaining spinach.
  • Once all spinach has wilted, remove from heat and spoon into a colander.
  • Press out as much of the excess liquid as possible.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, add the cooked spinach, feta, cream cheese, garlic and salt.
  • Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board.
  • Use a large, flat spatula to press down on the top of the chicken breast and use your other hand to insert a knife into the thickest side of the chicken.
  • Cut a pocket, being careful not to cut all the way through the other side and stopping before you get to the end of the chicken (creating a pocket, not a flap).
  • Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  • Place about a ½ cup of the spinach cheese mixture into each chicken pocket.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan (preferably oven-safe) on medium-high heat.
  • After the pan is heated through, add the chicken breasts – top side down.
  • Allow to cook for 5 minutes without touching.
  • If you used an oven-safe pan, simply place in the oven for 10-15 minutes until chicken has cooked through.
  • If not using an oven-safe pan, simply transfer the chicken breasts to an oven-safe dish and bake.
  • If your chicken breasts are quite large – they will need the full 15 minutes.
  • 10.
  • Once finished baking, allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes and serve
