Preparation and Serving Tips

This dinner may seem like a luxury, but it’s super simple to whip up. Stuffed chicken is actually very easy to make and is a fun and delicious way to dress up your go-to chicken dinner.

Preparing stuffed chicken is really as easy as simply slicing a pocket in the chicken breast, stuffing it, and baking it as usual. To make the pocket, first make sure you have a sharp knife. Keep a hand on top of the chicken breast to keep it steady, and insert the knife into the middle of the thickest part of the longest side. You’ll want to cut about 3/4 of the way through to ensure you have enough room for the stuffing without risking the entire chicken breast falling apart.

This spinach stuffed chicken breast recipe will pair well with any of your usual sides. Try serving with these easy garlic lemon green beans for a quick, simple, and zesty veggie side.

Chicken may be a weeknight go-to, but it doesn’t have to be boring. This delicious and surprisingly easy spinach stuffed chicken recipe is a healthy dinner you’ll definitely want to add to your menu this week.
