Superb Spinach and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken!

Posted Jan 27 2010 6:05pm
I just sprinkled flour over the top and the sesame seeds on top of that...this probably wasn't the best methodbut it's the one I went with. 


Chicken cooking in 2 tbs of olive oil.


Using a mallet (or masher) pound out the chicken until it is very flat. Wring the spinach dry with a kitchen towel (or paper towels). Add it to a bowl. Add the lemon zest and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mix until combined. Depending on what cheese you are usingadd it now. I split the spinach in half and added goat cheese to half and mozzarella to half. 


Lay the pounded chicken breasts out on a cutting board. Season them with salt and pepper. Place an equal amount of the spinach mixture on each chicken breast. Roll the chicken into a cylinder (cigar like) shape.  Secure it with toothpicks. Season the outside of the chicken with salt and pepper and then dredge or sprinkle the flour and sesame seeds on top.


Preheat a large skillet over medium to medium high heat with 2 tbs of olive oil. Place the chicken in the pan and brown each of the sides for about 5 minutesuntil golden brown. Add about 1/2 cup of chicken broth and turn down the heat to low and cover. 


Meanwhile add 1/4 cup chicken broth to another skillet on medium heat. Place garlic and onion in the skillet and brown. Add the carrotsmushroomszucchinithymered pepper flakes and salt. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add lemon juiceparsley and diced roasted red peppers.


Whole Wheat rolls to go with our meal (I used 2 cups whole wheat flour1 cup spelt and 1 cup bread flour and added about 1/4 cup whole flax seeds)

I had some leftover rice so I just quickly made stuffed peppers using the leftover cheese.
