Stuffed chicken breast with spinach and tomato feta

No boring chicken breasts here! I knew this spinach, tomato and feta mix, inspired by my stuffed portobello recipe from the Skinnytaste Air Fryer Cookbook, would be amazingly stuffed in a chicken breast. This dish has a taste overload. Not to mention, it’s high in protein and low in carbohydrates – a filling meal rolled into one! If you want, add a side salad.

vegetables: Sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, shallots and garliccheese: Feta and ParmesanHerbs: Basil and oreganoStaples: Panko, salt and olive oil

How to stuff

After you’ve cut a pocket into the sides of the chicken breast, add ¾ cup of the vegetable and cheese mixture to each piece. If necessary, you can hold the chicken together with a toothpick.

Then fry the chicken in a cast iron pan for a few minutes on both sides and then put it in the oven to bake at 425 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Cook until a thermometer inserted into the chicken reaches 165 degrees.

Tips for spinach-tomato-feta-stuffed chicken breast:

Look for organic chicken that usually has smaller breasts. Be careful not to cut all the way through your chicken breast. Chop your ingredients so they all fit inside the chicken. If you don’t have an ovenproof or cast iron, first sauté the chicken, then transfer it to an ovenproof bowl. Chill leftovers for up to four days. To freeze the leftovers, transfer them to a freezer-safe container and freeze them for up to three months.
