Keto Spinach And Feta Stuffed Chicken
3 chicken breasts
8 oz bag of fresh spinach (can substitute with frozen spinach)
½ cup feta cheese, crumbled
4 oz cream cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp salt
extra salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
First Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
In a big sauté pan over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the contents of the 8 oz. bag of fresh spinach and employ a wooden spoon to gently stir for 2-3 minutes until all spinach is wilted. If the pan is too small to hold all the spinach, start with half a bag, allow it to wilt, and add the remaining spinach.
After Once all spinach has wilted, take away from heat and spoon into a colander. Press out as much of the excess liquid as possible.
Then In a medium-sized bowl, add the cooked spinach, feta, cream cheese, garlic and salt.
Then put the chicken breasts on a cutting board. Employ a large, flat spatula to press down on the top of the chicken breast and employ your other hand to insert a knife into the thickest side of the chicken. Cut a pocket, being careful not to cut all the way through the other side and stopping before you get to the end of the chicken (creating a pocket, not a flap).
After Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
Next put about a ½ cup of the spinach cheese combination into each chicken pocket.
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan (preferably oven-safe) on medium-high heat. After the pan is heated through, add the chicken breasts – top side down. Allow cooking for five (5) minutes without touching.
Then If you used an oven-safe pan, just place in the oven for 10-15 minutes until chicken has cooked through. If not using an oven-safe pan, just transfer the chicken breasts to an oven-safe dish and bake. If your chicken breasts are quite large – they will need the full fifteen (15) minutes.
Once over baking, allow the chicken to rest for five (5) minutes and serve.
