Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, finely diced
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the chopped spinach, diced mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Mix well.
  3. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut a pocket into the side of each chicken breast.
  4. Divide the cheese and vegetable mixture evenly, and stuff each chicken breast pocket with the mixture.
  5. Secure the openings with toothpicks to keep the stuffing from falling out.
  6. In an oven-safe skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
  7. Sear the stuffed chicken breasts for about 2-3 minutes on each side until they’re golden brown.
  8. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  9. Once cooked, remove the toothpicks and let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving.
