INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED:

  • 2 – 3 boneless chicken breast
  • 2 TBSP tomato paste
  • Sea salt, dash
  • Pepper, dash
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 3 oz. fresh mozzarella
  • 3 cups spinach, packed
  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups of marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese, shredded

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheet with non-stick pan lining paper. This makes for easy clean-up.
  2. Prepare the chicken breast 1 of 2 ways.
    • Place your knife at one end of a chicken breast, parallel to the cutting board. Cut into the middle of the chicken breast and slice from one end to the other, almost all the way through. Open the chicken breast up so that it’s one long, thinner piece. Once “stuffed” with the remaining ingredients, the chicken breast can be closed; the upper half of the chicken breast over the top of the topped lower half.
    • The other option is to use a mallet to thin the chicken breast and then top with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Season the chicken breasts with sea salt and pepper.
  4. Spread the tomato paste on the chicken breast.
  5. Spread the ricotta on top of the tomato paste and then lay the mozzarella on top of the ricotta.Chicken Breast over Spinach - Tomatoes-pic4Chicken Breast over Spinach - Tomatoes-pic3
