Hi guys! Today I’m sharing my recipe for this yummy spinach & mozzarella stuffed chicken breast we had a few nights ago. Let me tell ya…it is so good!
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1 green onion, chopped
1 bag of frozen spinach, thawed & drained
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tbsp. olive oil for sautéing
3/4 cup of shredded low moisture, part skim mozzarella cheese
*seasoning to taste (salt, pepper, garlic power, & onion powder)
Pre-heat oven to 375. Start with sautéing the bell pepper on med high heat. Once softened, scatter the spinach around, add the chopped green onion, and season with salt and pepper. Sauté this for just a few minutes to let all the flavors mix together. Remove from heat and let cool while you prepare the chicken.
For the chicken make a pocket that you will add your stuffing to.
Transfer your spinach mix to a small mixing bowl. Then add the 3/4 cup of shredded mozzarella, slightly beaten eggs, and salt & pepper. Stir to mix and it’s ready to add to the chicken.
Now divide the mixture evenly between the 4 chicken breast. Arrange on a 13 x 9 baking pan and season as you normally would. I used a sprinkling of salt, pepper, onion & garlic powder.
Bake at 375 for 40-45 min. or until juice runs clear.
Serve it up with a side of rice or mixed veggies and your meal is complete!
Hope you and your family enjoy this recipe. Let me know if you try it out and what you think!
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
