DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Using a sharp knife, make slits in the chicken breasts that are about 3/4 inches wide, making sure not to cut all the way down through the bottom of the chicken breast. You will have about 7 or 8 slits per chicken breast, depending on how large your chicken breasts are. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Place the spinach evenly in the slits of the chicken.
  • Combine the breadcrumb and Cajun seasoning in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the chicken. Place the pepper jack slices in the slits of the chicken.
  • Place each chicken on its own lightly greased sheet of tin foil and make a "bowl", surrounding each chicken breast. This keeps the juices contained.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove each chicken breast from its tin foil "bowl" and place on a serving dish.
  • Enjoy!
