Making Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, it can be very easy.
The protein I use most in the kitchen would definitely be chicken. Most weeks, we eat chicken 3-4 nights a week. In order for my family not to get bored, I have to switch things up every now and then.
Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Spinach
Last week as I was struggling to think of something to do for dinner, I decided to use some of the frozen chopped spinach I had in the freezer along with my boneless skinless chicken breasts. The end result was appealing to the eyes and delicious!
I don’t like cooking with a bunch of ingredients, so keeping it simple, I kept the ingredients to a minimum. I started by thawing the frozen chopped spinach and making sure to drain off all the excess liquid. I added garlic powder, parmesan cheese and ground pepper and mixed it all together.
I put the chicken breasts in a freezer bag and took out a little frustration while beating the chicken. It is less messy by using some sort of bag to pound the chicken. Top each chicken breast with some of the spinach mixture.
Start at one end of the chicken breast and begin rolling. Place a toothpick in the middle to hold it together. Continue until you’ve rolled all the chicken and put rolled chicken in an oven safe dish.
Don’t forget to spray your dish with Pam or something similar. We wouldn’t want the chicken to stick to this dish. That’d be a pure shame.
About 40 minutes later, you’ll be ready to enjoy this yummy combination of spinach and chicken. I served mine with couscous and added the leftover spinach mixture.
I also sprinkled a little parmesan cheese on top of the chicken when there was about 10 minutes left on the timer. It was absolutely delicious and a great way to get your children to eat their veggies.
