- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped (oil packed)
- 3 mozzarella cheese sticks
- 1 cup spinach divided
Preheat oven to 350F.
Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board and cut a pocket into each chicken breast, making sure not to cut all the way though.
Season the chicken with salt, black pepper and garlic powder (both sides)
Stuff the chicken breast in this order; spinach, cheese stick, and chopped sun-dried tomato.
If you want to make sure everything stays secure, seal each chicken breast using toothpicks.
In a cast iron skillet, add olive oil over high heat.
Add chicken and sear it for about 2 minutes just until the chicken gets golden brown.
Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken's internal temp is 165F.
- If you want your chicken to be more cheesy, double the cheese sticks and add 2 sticks to each breast.
