Servings 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 medium chicken breasts (about 2 lbs)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup jarred roasted red peppers
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 4 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions

  1. Pat chicken breasts dry and cut a slit in each about 2/3 through. Season with salt and pepper and dredge each breast in flour. Set aside for a moment.

  2. In a medium skillet over medium high heat, saute garlic, roasted red peppers, and spinach in 1 tablespoon olive oil until spinach is wilted, about 5 minutes.

  3. In a separate skillet, heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil and butter over medium-high heat until shimmery. Sear chicken on both sides 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown. Transfer to a large plate.

  4. Fill each chicken breast with roasted red pepper mixture and a slice of mozzarella cheese, using toothpicks to secure. Place chicken breasts on a baking sheet and bake at 375F 20-25 minutes or until chicken registers 160F. Remove toothpicks before serving and enjoy!
