Stuff that Breast…

…or how I made a healthy stuffed chicken breast dinner.
(You thought something dirty, didn’t you?)

In my quest to make yummy things that are healthy, I decided to take a chicken breast and stuffed it with vegetables. It came out pretty good, actually.

This was my first time making a stuffed chicken breast that didn’t come pre-stuffed. So, naturally, I was nervous as to how it would work out in the end.

Since I had sides with it, I will include the recipe for those, too. Yup, you’re getting a whole meal this time.

Stuffed Chicken Breast

4oz boneless skinless chicken breast
1 clove minced garlic
1/4 tsp Ground Coriander
1/4 tsp Paprika
1/2 tbsp Olive Oil
2 tbsp White Cooking Wine
1 ounce baby spinach, chopped
1 Baby Bella, chopped
3 Grape tomatoes, chopped
1 tbsp chopped onion

  • Place chicken, a little salt, garlic, wine, oil, paprika, and coriander in a zip-lock bag and marinade for 20 minutes
  • Preheat oven to 375F
  • Spray saute pan with non-stick spray and heat to medium
  • Caramelize the onion
  • Add the rest of the vegetables
  • Slice the chicken to create a pocket.

  • Place the veggies in the breast and cover with small amount of the veggies

    Some site says to pound the breast flat, I didn’t, and it baked just fine.
