Ingredients:

  • 4 Large Chicken Breast
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
  • ¼ cup, Pesto
  • 4 tbsp. Cream Cheese
  • ¾ cup, Mozzarella Cheese
  • ½ cup, Sundried Tomatoes
  • ½ cup, Chopped Spinach
  • ¼ cup, Parsley, Minced

 

Cooking Instructions:

    1. Heat your oven to 375 degrees F.
    2. Place the chicken on a cutting board. With a sharp knife, carefully cut a pocket into the side of the chicken breasts. Take care not to cut all the way through. You are creating a “pocket” for all the filling to bake in.
    3. Season the chicken with salt, inside and out.
    4. In a small bowl, mix the garlic, pesto, cream cheese, and mozzarella. Set aside.
    5. Layer the inside pockets of your chicken with the cream cheese mixture, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach. Secure the opening with toothpicks if desired.
    6. Heat the olive oil in a cast-iron pan or ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Sear the chicken on both sides for 3-4 minutes each, until golden brown.
    7. Place all four breasts back into the pan (or on a baking sheet if you are not using an ovenproof skillet) and place them in the oven until the internal temperature of the chicken breast is 165°F. This takes about 16-18 minutes longer depending on the size of the breast.
