DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a baking dish that will hold all four breasts, such as a 13 x 9 pan.
  • Make stuffing: Wash and dry spinach. Roughly chop the spinach and place into a medium size bowl. Using a fork or your hands, mash the spinach and cheese together until the spinach is coated with the cheese and most of the lumps are gone.
  • Season the chicken lightly with salt and pepper on both sides. Slide your fingers under the chicken skin to loosen it, leaving some of the membrane intact so it will better hold the stuffing.
  • Lightly drizzle olive oil on the bottom of the pan, and lay the chicken breasts skin-side up on top of the oil.
  • Dividing the stuffing evenly between them, stuff the breasts. Using the opening you made with your fingers, gently push the spinach/cheese mixture under the skin, working it around so it looks attractive.
  • Drizzle the skin lightly with olive oil.
  • Place pan in oven and bake for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • If you have extra stuffing, bake it in a small greased dish for about 25 minutes.
  • Check the chicken after 30 minutes and lay a piece of foil over the pan if it is getting too brown.
