Everyone loves stuffed chicken - especially this recipe. Sweet caramelized onions, sautéed spinach laced with nutmeg and tangy Feta cheese play together harmoniously.
|2 tbsp||(30 mL) Olive oil, divided|
|1||Onion, thinly sliced|
|3 cups||(750 mL) Fresh spinach|
|Salt and pepper|
|.5 cup||(125 mL) Crumbled Feta cheese|
|4||Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts|
|1 tbsp||(15 mL) Butter|
PREHEAT oven to 375°F (190°C).
HEAT 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil over medium-low heat in a fry pan. Add onion and cook 8-9 minutes or until golden brown in colour. Add spinach and cook 2-3 minutes or until completely wilted. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
CHOP spinach mixture roughly. Stir in Feta cheese. Set aside.
MAKE a deep horizontal pocket in the center of each chicken breast. Season with salt and pepper. Stuff each breast with spinach mixture.
HEAT butter and remaining oil in a large oven proof skillet, over medium-high heat. Cook chicken on both sides until golden brown. Transfer to the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
