Herbed Spinach, Feta, Ricotta stuffed Chicken

Herbed Spinach, Feta, Ricotta stuffed Chicken

Introduction

Irresistible! I like to use chicken breasts that have been marinating in buttermilk marinade overnight. Irresistible! I like to use chicken breasts that have been marinating in buttermilk marinade overnight.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    6 small-medium boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    4 oz baby spinach, julienned
    .25 cup part skim ricotta
    .25 cup reduced fat feta cheese
    2 tbsp Light sour cream
    2 tbsp finely chopped sun dried tomatoes
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tsp Dijon mustard
    2 tbsp finely chopped scallions (green onions)
    .5 tsp salt (more or less to your taste)
    .5 tsp FRESHLY ground pepper
    Add other herbs to your liking! Fresh or dried.
    .5 tsp oregano
    .25 tsp basil
    1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all ingredients except olive oil and chicken, until all ingredients are evenly distributed. Using a paring knife, make a pocket in each chicken breast. I find the best way is make the pockets is to cut a small-medium sized pocket with my paring knife, then use my finger to make it bigger. It's easy to cut a hole in the chicken with the knife. Take your stuffing mixture and stuff it in each chicken breast. Brown each chicken, skin (smooth) side down in a med-high skillet with olive oil or butter for 2 minuets apiece. Place on rimmed baking sheet and bake for 25 minuets. This goes great with my sauteed zucchini.

  • EXCELLENT recipe! I added some capers to the mix and loved it. Also, instead of using 6 chicken breasts I only used 3 and then used the extra stuffing mixture to stuff 6 medium portabello mushrooms to eat as a side dish. SO Yummy!!! - 10/4/11

  • Really good but hard to figure out how much spinach is 4oz - Seemed like much more spinach than anything else in recipe. Am going to make again but change proportions (even though I love spinach!) - 5/12/10

  • This recipe is fantastic! I liked putting the ingredients in the food processor. I was having trouble getting the stuffing into the breasts, when I decided to put it into a sandwich bag and cut a small hole in the corner (like icing a cake). My family will definitely make it again. - 11/17/08

  • Excellent recipe, with a few small changes. First, throw everything in a food processor, it will save you a lot of time. Second, I made 8 chicken breasts and had a little filling left over (probably could have made 1-2 more). Finally, a lot more pepper and a bit more salt. Overall, 9/10! - 11/3/08
