Spinach & Ricotta Stuffed Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 5 large chicken breasts (boneless, skinless) – roughly 4-5oz each and ideally organic free range
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 cup chopped spinach (or mixed greens of your choice)
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • paprika

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F and grease a 9×13 baking dish with some oil.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine ricotta, mozzarella, spinach, a dash or two of garlic powder, and a sprinkle of both salt and pepper.
  3. On a cutting board, position the chicken breast and carefully insert the tip of a sharp knife into the thickest portion of the chicken breast. To build a pocket without cutting all the way through, cut an opening about 4 inches across.
  4. Rub each chicken breast down with avocado oil inside and out. Sprinkle with oregano, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.
  5. Stuff each breast with the cheese mixture. (You can also secure the pocket with toothpicks if you like, I usually don’t.- But if you do, remember to remove them before serving.)
  6. Place the breasts into the prepared baking dish, sprinkle with additional paprika, garlic powder, a pinch of salt, and bake for 25 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Check the internal temperature with a thermometer – 165F is a safe temperature.
  7. Serve warm!

Enjoy!
