Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts
What you need:
4 chicken breasts
1 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt, divided
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon onion powder
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
¼ cup grated Parmesan
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 ½ cups chopped fresh spinach
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
What you do:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board and drizzle with oil.
Add the paprika, 1/2 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, and onion powder to a small bowl and stir to combine.
Place a chicken breast on a cutting board. Press a hand on top of the breast and carefully insert the tip of a chef's knife into the thickest part of the chicken breast. Cut an opening about 3 inches wide, then cut 3/4 of the way through the breast to create a pocket without cutting all the way through. Repeat with the remaining breasts. Thoroughly dry the chicken on all sides with paper towels.
Season on all sides and inside the pockets.
Add cream cheese, Parmesan, mayonnaise, spinach, garlic, red pepper, and remaining ½ teaspoon of salt to a small mixing bowl and stir well to combine.
Spoon the spinach mixture into each chicken breast evenly.
Place the chicken breasts in a 9x13 baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
