Stuffed Chicken Breast with Spinach

Ingredients ( for 1 piece )IMG_6450

  • 2 handfuls baby spinach
  • 1 tbsp full-fat cream cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • small sprig dill, roughly chopped
  • 1 large skinless, boneless chicken breast

Method :

  • Put the spinach in a small bowl and place in the steamer for 2-3 minutes until it wilts. Remove the spinach, squeeze to remove as much moisture as possible, then cut into shreds and place in a dry bowl. Add the cream cheese, dill and some salt and pepper, and mix well.
  • Cut a slice along the side of the chicken breast but not all the way through, to create a pocket. Stuff the spinach mixture into the pocket, then seal the breast closed using cocktail sticks.
  • Put the stuffed breast on a small plate and place in the steamer to cook for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the cocktail sticks and allow to cool slightly before slicing.
  • Serve with salad leaves and lemon wedge.
