When this Sun-Dried Tomato, Spinach, and Cheese Stuffed Chicken recipe from RecipeTin Eats showed up on my Pinterest feed, it totally grabbed my attention because it looked very juicy, and flavorful. It is easy to make and at the same time sophisticated and elegant. Wouldn’t it be awesome to serve at a dinner party with friends?
The best part of this recipe is that you can stuff the chicken breast with pretty much anything you want such as olives, another type of cheese (feta, ricotta), kale, bell peppers, onions, and the list goes on and on. So, with all those ingredients, this recipe is seriously satisfying since it’s packed with protein and fibers. On top of that, it’s also gluten-free and low-carb.
I would like to say I used 3 medium chicken breasts. Because of the size of my chicken breasts, I think these Sun Dried Tomato, Spinach, and Cheese Stuffed Chicken breasts feed easily 4 people. But if you cook with smaller chicken breasts, you might want to use 4 chicken breasts.
Then, when the chicken breasts are stuffed, just sear them in a cast iron skillet for about 2 minutes and place the skillet in the oven for 20 minutes or so. And done!
