We all know that chicken breast (boneless and skinless) can sometimes be very boring. But, when you stuff them with your favorite ingredients, they can really elevate the flavor of your chicken. I love to make stuffed chicken breasts because you can stuff the chicken with just about anything and the options are endless. Last time I made stuffed chicken, I used spinach, feta cheese, and black olive as a filling and it was very tasty.

And it takes no time at all to create it, other than a quick sear in a skillet to make the chicken even more flavorful and get a good crust on the outside.
