Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Prep Time 50 min
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 4 Foster Farms Simply Raised boneless skinless chicken breast fillets

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • ½ cup onion, finely diced

  • 1 bag (10 oz.) fresh spinach leaves

  • ¼ cup fresh dill, chopped

  • ½ cup Feta cheese crumbles

  • ½ cup Monterey Jack cheese, grated

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 375°F on bake setting.

    2. In large skillet over medium-high heat, warm olive oil. Add onions to skillet and sauté until translucent, about 3-4 minutes.

    3. Add spinach to skillet, cover, reduce heat to medium and cook until spinach is wilted. Transfer onion and spinach to a large bowl and allow to cool for 3-4 minutes.

    4. Add dill, Feta cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, salt and pepper to bowl; mix well to combine.

    5. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.

    6. Place eggs in small bowl and panko in pie plate. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

    7. Using sharp knife, slit each chicken breast along long side, cutting only about 3/4 of the way through.

    8. Divide spinach mixture into four sections and stuff each breast with a portion of the mixture.

    9. Dip breasts first in egg mixture and then in panko to coat. Place chicken on prepared pan and lightly coat chicken with olive oil cooking spray.

    10. Place in preheated oven and cook until the spinach mixture and the internal temperature of the thickest part of chicken reaches 165°F. Always use a meat thermometer to determine the temperature.

COOK TO A SAFE INTERNAL TEMPERATURE OF AT LEAST 165°F. ALWAYS use a meat thermometer to determine the temperature. Do not rely solely on suggested cooking times. Cooking appliances vary in temperature and cooking times are a GUIDE ONLY.
