Chicken breasts get an upgrade with this simple recipe. Searing the chicken seals in moisture, and the filling is bursting with flavor. Spinach, sun-dried tomato, and gooey mozzarella provide a departure from ordinary chicken breasts. With an overall prep time of 45 minutes or less, and at less than 200 calories per serving, this recipe is a muscle making winner.

Ingredients

  • 1 LB. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ cup sun dried tomatoes
  • ½ cup fresh, chopped baby spinach
  • ½ cup light mozzarella cheese
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly spray a medium cast-iron skillet with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and garlic.
  4. Heat skillet to medium-high and sear the chicken breasts 1-2 minutes per side.
  5. Remove chicken breasts from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  6. Once the chicken is cool, carefully slice each chicken breast lengthwise, creating a pocket for the filling.
  7. Stuff each breast with a quarter of the spinach, tomatoes, and cheese.
  8. Secure the filling by placing 1-2 toothpicks near the opening of the chicken breast.
  9. Transfer the chicken back to the skillet, and bake for 20 minutes, or until done. Meat should register 165 degrees on a baking thermometer.
  10. Makes 4 servings.
