Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Chicken
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (2 lb.)
2 T. Italian seasoning
1 t. mild paprika (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Spinach Artichoke Dip:
4 oz. frozen spinach, thawed
8 oz. cream cheese (room temp.)
6 oz. bottled or canned artichoke hearts in brine, finely chopped
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
¼ cup finely grated parmesan cheese
1 T. minced garlic
Salt to taste
Optional Cream Sauce:
Remaining spin artichoke dip
1 cup milk
Place the chicken on a flat surface. Season both sides of each breast with the Italian seasoning and paprika (optional.) With your hand supporting each piece, cut a slit o pocket about ¾ of the way through, being careful not to cut all the way through.
Squeeze any and all excess liquid out of the spinach. Discard the water released. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the spinach, cream cheese, artichokes, mozzarella, parmesan and garlic; mix well to combine (use your hands if necessary.)
Fill chicken “pockets” with 1-2 T. of the spinach artichoke dip, spreading evenly with the back of the spoon. Reserve the leftover dip for the optional cream sauce.
Seal with two or three toothpicks near the opening to keep the dip from falling out while cooking.
Heat 1 T. of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and fry until golden. Rotate and fry on the other side, covering pan with a lid, until cooked through (about 6 to 7 minutes per side.) Transfer chicken to a warm dish to make the cream sauce.
In the same skillet, pour milk into the skillet and bring to simmer. Add in the remaining dip (you should have exactly half remaining) and stir until the sauce is combined and thickened. Add the chicken back into the pan and serve immediately.
