This is an easy DELICIOUS chicken dinner. I like to serve with rice pilaf (shown) or mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli.

How to Make Herbed Goat Cheese and Spinach stuffed Chicken Breast

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. butterfly the chicken breasts and pound out slightly to thin out the breast (carefully as it's easy to make them too thin) to make baking time even.
  3. spread the goat cheese (approx. 2-3 tablespoons) on the inside of each breast.
  4. top goat cheese with 1/4 of the spinach leaves
  5. roll each breast up and place seam side down in a baking dish.
  6. sprinkle herbs, salt and pepper over the top of each roll
  7. bake until browned and bubbling (approx. 30-40 minutes depending on your oven)
  8. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes or so.
  9. Once rested, you can either serve as a whole breast "roll" per person, or slice each roll on the bias and serve.
  10. Sprinkle with fresh parsley, and garnish with lime slices.
