Stuffed Chicken with Spinach, Goat Cheese, Cranberries and Pecans

5 years ago

The only negative thing about this recipe is that I only made two chicken breast so therefore we do not have any leftovers. This chicken turned out so well and Jason and I kept commenting on how moist and flavorful it was. With all the beautiful and festive colors this would be a wonderful dish to make during the holidays. The recipe below is for two chicken breast but you can easily double or triple it to feed a crowd.

 

Stuffed Chicken with Spinach, Goat Cheese, Cranberries and Pecans

 Ingredients:

  • - 2 chicken breast
  • - 1/2 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • - 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • - 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • - 1 tablespoon chopped pecans
  • - Salt and pepper to taste

 Directions:

- Butterfly chicken breast and add salt and pepper to the inside.

- Divide the spinach leaves and lay inside of each chicken breast.

- In a small bowl mix together cranberries, goat cheese and pecans. Divide evenly among the chicken

- Close the chicken making sure all ingredients are stuffed inside and seal with toothpicks.

- Add salt and pepper to the outside of the chicken and drizzle with olive oil.

- Bake on 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
