This recipe is from the fabulous "Junior League Centennial Cookbook", originally published in the Charleston, WV Junior League book "Mountain Measures-A Second Serving". I haven't actually tried it yet but plan to very soon.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Butter a shallow baking dish large enough to hold the chicken in one layer.
  3. Place the breasts on a work surface, skin side up.
  4. Starting at the top, gently pull the skin away from the meat to form a pocket, leaving the sides still attached.
  5. Combine the spinach, cheeses, and seasonings.
  6. Divide into 4 portions.
  7. Place 1 portion of filling under the skin of each breast.
  8. Smooth the skin over the filling, tucking the ends under.
  9. Rub each breast with butter and place in the buttered baking dish.
  10. Bake, covered, for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  11. Serve sliced, hot or cold.
