INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 4 ounces cremini mushrooms, diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach leaves, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat

DIRECTIONS

In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil until shimmering. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the onion and cook until slightly translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and spinach and cook for another 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove vegetables from heat. Stir in mozzarella cheese and mix until incorporated.

 

Using a sharp knife, slice a slit into the side of each chicken breast. Move the knife back and forth to make a pocket. Season the chicken liberally with salt and pepper. Stuff each chicken breast with some of the mushroom mixture. If needed, use a wooden toothpick to keep the stuffing from falling out.  

 

In a large pan over medium-high heat, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil until shimmering. Add the chicken breasts and cook on one side until nicely browned, about 5-8 minutes depending on the thickness of the chicken. Flip chicken breasts over and cook on the other side until entirely cooked through, approximately 5-8 more minutes. 

 

Remove from heat. Serve immediately, with a side of rice, pasta, or vegetables to make a more hearty meal. Enjoy!
