Florentine Stuffed Chicken

"Bone-in chicken breasts stuffed with spinach, cheese and onion and baked until tender. This is a simple recipe that I cooked up myself. It is, however, based on some pretty standard Greek/Italian dishes. Everyone loves this and it can be wonderful for company - even people who don't usually like spinach find that they like this dish! Serve with your favorite shaped pasta, if desired."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the spinach, Parmesan cheese and onion and mix thoroughly. Stuff the cavity of each chicken breast with 1/4 of the mixture. (NOTE: Bone-in split breasts usually have a little cavity; if one is not naturally present, use a sharp knife to make a slit in the side of the breast.)
  3. Lay stuffed breasts in a 9x13 inch baking dish, and cover with the sauce.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 35 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and tender; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake another 5 minutes, until cheese is melted.

Being a relatively seasoned home chef and picky eater, I will say this is one of the best recipes I've found on allrecipes.com. Perfect blend of flavors (you've gotta like onions, though), and ...

This was a good meal and surprisingly easy to make. Next time I make it though I am going to use ricatta or feta cheese instead of the parmesan.
