Baked Mediterranean Chicken

A yummy and easy way to make a typical baked chicken breast more exciting.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cut chicken breasts in half through the centre, and pound flat to make 6 cutlets.
  2. In a bowl, add cream cheese, parmesan cheese and chopped roasted red pepper.
  3. Heat butter in a pan, and sauté spinach until wilted. Remove from pan and chop.
  4. Add to bowl and mix with a spoon. Season with salt, pepper, or other preferred herbs and spices.
  5. Spread a large spoonful of the mixture over each chicken cutlet.
  6. Roll the cutlets and place on a lightly greased pan or parchment paper, seam-side down. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Bake at 400° F (200° C) for 45-60 minutes (depending on your oven). Remove, let cool and enjoy!
  8. Note: would also be great topped with a little tzatziki or other dressing.

I've been making this! (before I saw this recipe) Only with full cream cheese and a bit of half and half, garlic and no red peppers. I cook the chicken and then add the cream cheese and cream, melt cream cheese then add spinach, cover and cook about 2 minutes. It's delish!!
