For some very odd reason I’ve been on a Spinach kick lately. I’m not sure why, seeing as I’ve never been all that fond of it. It all started when I was going to make the Lasagna Rolls and I decided to add some Spinach into the Ricotta mixture. It turned out so good that I’ve been wanting more! So I decided to make Chicken Stuffed with Spinach and Sharp Provolone. So I was set out to do this in 5 Ingredients!
- boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 bag of fresh spinach
- garlic olive oil (you can buy this, or make it yourself)
- sharp provolone cheese
- fresh thyme (not pictured)
- salt & pepper (freebies)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
If I don’t buy Baby Spinach, I like to take all of the stems off of the Spinach. I’m just really not a fan of the stems. So after doing that, I added some Garlic Olive Oil into a pan over medium heat. Add in all of the Spinach and season with Fresh Thyme, Salt & Pepper. It will cook down a lot. Don’t be surprised! Once it’s done, place in a bowl and set aside.
Garlic Olive Oil
Add in Spinach and season it
Meanwhile, if you have thick Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut them in half. Pound each half (I usually put the chicken between a few pieces of Saran Wrap) so that it’s thin. It should look something like this:
Add Sharp Provolone and Roll it up!
Once I roll the Chicken up, I usually secure it with a toothpick. I find that to be easier than trying to put it seam side down and losing everything, lol! You then want to repeat this with the other pieces of chicken. Place in a baking dish with some of that Garlic Olive Oil brushed on the bottom.
Hanging out in the Baking Dish
Bake in a Preheated oven (425 degrees) for about 30 minutes or until juices run clear. If you have thicker pieces of chicken, it will take longer to cook. It’s pretty easy to judge when the chicken is done. I add a little bit more cheese on the top about 5 minutes before it’s going to come out of the oven. There is no such thing as too much cheese!
