Recipe Ingredients for Goat Cheese-And-Spinach-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

600 g (10- to 12-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 oz goat cheese, crumbled
1 c spinach, washed and coarsely chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 T olive oil
14 ounce artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
2 T pitted Kalamata olives, coarsely chopped
1 T Wine Vinegar
125 g low-sodium chicken broth

Recipe Directions for Goat Cheese-And-Spinach-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

  1. eheat oven to 400F. On a clean work surface, slice chicken breasts almost in half horizontally and open them like a book. Combine goat cheese with chopped spinach and divide the mixture between the 2 breasts. Season with salt and pepper. Roll each breast into a tight log. Using kitchen twine, tie logs at 1 -inch intervals, or secure with toothpicks.

  2. Heat olive oil in an ovenproof skillet and brown breasts evenly for about 10 minutes total. Add artichoke hearts, olives, and vinegar and cook for 2 minutes, or until most of the vinegar evaporates. Add chicken broth and cover pan tightly with aluminum foil.

  3. Place the skillet in the oven and cook for about 12 minutes. (When pierced, chicken should be moist, but juices should have no traces of pink.) Place breasts on a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, remove strings (or toothpicks) and slice breasts into 1/2-inch-thick pieces and divide among 4 plates. Top each with artichokes, olives, and pan juices and serve..
