Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Filling:

  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup crimini mushrooms or white mushrooms, sliced (optional)

Instructions

  • Prepare filling as follows: Heat 1 tbs of olive oil in a large deep skillet over high heat. Add all ingredients, except the feta cheese. Cook, stirring constantly until spinach has wilted; remove to a bowl and stir in the feta cheese. Keep it warm.
  • Butterfly chicken breasts, but do not cut all the way through. Sprinkle chicken with salt & pepper if desired.
  • Heat 2 tbs olive oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to the pan and brown well on each side—about 8 minutes per side.
  • Remove chicken and place 1/4 of the spinach mixture in each chicken breast. Return to the skillet, cover and cook over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes or until chicken reaches 165 degrees F on a thermometer or the juices run clear.
