Sun-dried Tomato, Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast

These Sun-dried Tomato, Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast are so easy and only require 7 simple ingredients. Recently, I have started eating my weight in protein to help gain muscle and plain chicken can get old real quick. I love adding flavor and texture to a boring chicken breast to make it more enjoyable to eat on a daily basis. This recipe has saved me lately and is also perfect for meal prep.

What I love most about this recipe, is it’s kid APPROVED. Since we have been stuck in the house with self- quarantine, they both have become extra picky with what I make. Lately, they have curled their noses up to a lot of the recipes I have made, but they said this meal was a keeper. Additionally, this recipe it is healthy and I am able to sneak veggies in a tasty way. It’s a win-win.

    Looks delicious, this is next on my list to make…..

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Yay! Thank you

  2. Jacquelyn says:

    Do you think I could use frozen spinach?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      I think you could. You may want to have it thawed before using. It could get watery.

  3. liz says:

    I initially planned to make this just to use up some sun-dried tomatoes, but I’ll definitely make it again! It was a hit both with my husband and I and our two toddlers. I was able to whip it up FAST and it was delicious! I think searing the chicken before baking made a big difference; never done that before but I’ll use that technique again.

  4. Christi Hector Ruffing says:

    Made this tonight and Ashley hit another home run! I used spinach/arugula mix for stuffing and since I didn’t have sun dried tomatoes I used a little leftover pesto my husband made for another meal to give it some flavor I hoped would make up for the missing SDtomatoes. Family liked it a lot- so will be making it again! Thanks for this one, A.M.!!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Wow! This is so great to hear. I am beyond happy to hear it was a hit.
