Ingredients Spinach Stuffed Chicken


Boneless Chicken Breast

1 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp onion powder

1 1/2 cup chicken broth


Creamed spinach

2 lb. fresh spinach or frozen

1 small onion diced

4 oz. cream cheese

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp butter

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 cup chicken broth





Let's Cook!



  • Preheat the oven to 350°F

  • Wash and clean the chicken breast. Using a sharp knife slice the breast deep enough to add the spinach stuffing.



  • Generously season the chicken on both sides with cumin, kosher salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. Set to the side.

  • Over medium heat melt the butter. Add in the finely chopped onions. Allow them to cook until they are soften and translucent.

  • Add the fresh spinach. If using frozen spinach, thaw out completely, then squeeze out the excess water.

  • Pour in the chicken broth and allow the spinach to wilt down and become completely cooked.

  • Add in soften cream cheese. Blend well until the cream cheese is completely dissolved.

  • Pour the parmesan cheese mix well and allow to melt. Creamed Spinach is ready to stuff once it has cooled. Do not cook the spinach all the way it will continue to cook in the oven.

  • Once the spinach has cool place a generous amount inside the cavity of the split chicken breast.



  • Place the chicken in a cast iron skillet with chicken broth cover with aluminum foil to lock in moisture. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until internal temperature is 160°-165° F.

Bon Appetit, ENJOY!
