  • Microwave spinach in a microwave-safe bowl until defrosted, about 5 minutes. Drain.

  • Place chicken thighs in a gallon-sized resealable bag and pound with a heavy glass bottle until about 1/4-inch in thickness. Pat dry with paper towels.

  • Combine the warm spinach, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix until cheeses melt. Spread over the chicken thighs; roll and secure with toothpicks.

  • Heat olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Place the chicken thighs seam-side down and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

  • Transfer skillet to the preheated oven and bake the chicken until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 20 to 25 minutes.

I like this recipe. it was pretty easy to make and nice flavor. I used chicken breast instead and it was hard to roll, but still worked good! I sprinkled extra mozzarella cheese ontop too. Read More
