There are days I am in the mood for a long ingredient list. I admit that most days I am not. This Spinach Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken is just 5 ingredients. Some ingredients give you a big bang for your flavor buck and goat cheese is on of them. It’s tangy, creamy, and plays well with flavors like garlic and sun dried tomato. If Mediterranean flavors are your jam, this recipe is for you.
Many stuffed chicken recipes rely on making a pocket and using toothpicks to hold everything together. My recipe only requires you to fill and fold. Just repeat that to yourself as you go. Fill and Fold. Fill and Fold. Not only does it look pretty, you won’t feel like you’re sewing your poor little chicken. You also don’t risk one of your guests will take a toothpick to the cheek. Safety first my friends.
I used fresh spinach in this Spinach Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken, but you can use frozen too. Just make sure you squeeze all of the water out. I also love to take the spinach in my fridge and transfer it to the freezer. I use the spinach in smoothies, pasta sauce, and this chicken recipe.
Since the goat cheese is so flavorful, you don’t need a ton. This makes for a very healthy chicken recipe that’s full of wholesome veggies. The bread crumbs and parsley on top are optional. If you are gluten free or low carb, you’ll notice I recommend you remove the bread crumbs in the recipe notes. I like a little crunch to my baked chicken so I added a few before baking.
