Cheesy Artichoke Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts
If you’re craving comfort food on a chilly evening, I have a good and really easy recipe that is sure to make your taste buds sing during those cold winter days. My Cheesy Artichoke Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts don’t take much time to prepare and the result is creamy, cheesy, and juicy chicken that is sure to become one of your new favorite dinner recipes.
Start off by preparing the stuffing. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, spinach, artichokes, and mozzarella cheese. Mix well and set aside. Now prepare the chicken. Cut a horizontal three-inch slit through the thickest portion of each chicken breast to form a pocket.
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper on both sides and stuff each chicken breast with about two tablespoons of spinach-artichoke mixture. Secure the openings with toothpicks.
Now, all you need to do is sear the chicken for a few minutes in a skillet and finish cooking in the oven. Simple, quick, and delicious! There are minimal ingredients and preparation time with this recipe, but so much flavor and taste. I hope you’ll love these stuffed chicken breasts as much as I do and will enjoy this simple dinner on a regular basis during the colder weather.
