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.

Stuffed chicken breast cut in half to show spinach filling.

Ingredients

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • ½ cup chopped onion

  • 4 bone-in chicken breast halves, with skin

  • 2 cups spaghetti sauce

  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions

  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.
