Recipe – Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Stuffed Chicken Breasts

4 chicken breasts

1 box frozen chopped spinach (thawed and drained)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup low fat mayo

1/2 cup low fat feta

4 strips turkey bacon

Cut a pocket in four chicken breasts. Mix together the spinach, garlic, mayo and feta. Stuff chicken with mixture and place in shallow baking dish. Place a slice of turkey bacon on each piece of chicken and bake at 375 for one hour.

Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner! This recipe is most delicious. Yummy even. Who knew I could use the word ‘yummy’ to describe spinach? The cheese, mayo, garlic spinach filling is good enough to use in other recipes too, perhaps on a whole-wheat pita or in an omelet. Plus, it was very quick to put together, though the baking did take about 45 minutes. (I used small chicken breasts.) I subbed a strip of ham for the bacon and it came out fine, if a little black and curly on the edges. This one is definitely going into heavy rotation on my dinner menu list.

This is a great recipe — thanks for sharing! I made it last night for dinner (my husband and I are also on the South Beach diet) and it’s now going into permanent rotation in our kitchen.
