I love making stuffed chicken breasts, some of my favorites are Prosciutto, Pear and Brie Stuffed Chicken Breasts, Cheesy Jalapeño Popper Baked Stuffed Chicken, Sun Dried Tomato and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Rollatini, and my husband’s favorite, Chicken Rollatini with Spinach alla Parmigiana.
I love making stuffed chicken breast as many as you probably figured out by now. You can stuff chicken with just about anything, and leftovers can be frozen and reheated for your very own homemade frozen meals which are so much better than store bought.

Anyone can make these, there are no toothpicks required and the prep time is fairly quick. I served this with a great big salad on the side, but you can also serve it with couscous, rice or quinoa.

    It has feta cheese and ricotta cheese in the recipe. I added a small amount of parmesan and cream cheese as well😋

  2. Seriously? 10 min prep time? It took me an hour hours just to prep and the whole kitchen of dirty dishes. Yes the result is great but honestly who would prep all this in 10 min ?

    We’re in quarantine time and I have most of the ingredients. However I don’t have any ricotta. What would you recommend to bind spinach & feta. Would an egg or plain yogurt be ok?  Thoughts?

    1. Bland? Did you season the mixture with salt? Something that simple can make a world of difference. 
      With all the wonderful flavors in here, spinach, the 2 different cheeses, onions, garlic, I can’t believe you found it bland. Personally, I’d add basil, more garlic, skip the shallots because they’re onions so why bother 🤷🏼‍♀️  freshly grated Parmesan and a little mozzarella to the mix and leave out the feta and dill.  
      Maybe try fancying it up with your own flavors and see how it comes out. 

  5. These are so good! I took them out about 4 minutes early because the tops were browning. They are awesome. My teenager liked them! Thank you Gina!

  6. This is a great recipe. I loved it. I used seasoned bread crumbs and added a little fresh lemon juice to the chicken before breading it.  The lemon juice complimented the spinach mixture without over powering it. Thank you for a great recipe. The family loved it.
