Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts are filled with a deliciously creamy spinach mixture and are a quick and easy meal that you can enjoy any day of the week!

Ingredients

Chicken:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Filling:

  • 10 cups fresh spinach chopped
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese finely grated
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon dried basil
  • pinch red pepper flakes optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350˚F and add olive oil to a large oven-safe skillet and set aside.
  • Slice the chicken breast in half starting from the side, but do not cut all the way through, you want to make a pocket for the filling.
  • To make the stuffing, begin by microwaving the chopped spinach in a large bowl for 90 seconds to wilt the spinach.
  • Remove the spinach from the microwave and stir in the cheeses, sour cream, cream cheese, and seasonings until well combined. Stuff equal parts of the spinach mixture into the prepared chicken breasts and place in the prepared skillet.
  • Sear the chicken over medium-high heat on both sides until golden brown. Transfer the chicken to the oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
