Ingredients

Scale

4 (~6 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 cup frozen spinach, thawed and drained well

1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Dry and trim the chicken breasts of any fat. Using a meat mallet, pound each chicken breast until it is evenly thin.*
  3. Place the chicken breasts on the prepared baking sheet and season both sides well with salt and pepper. Then, sprinkle the top side with the basil and oregano. Add approximately 2 tablespoons of the crumbled goat cheese to each chicken breast. Finally, add about 1/4 cup of the spinach to the top.
  4. Next, roll up the chicken breast, jelly roll style, and place it seam-side down. (If it’s not big enough to lay flat with the seam on the bottom, it’s okay if it’s more on the side. See photos above.)
  5. Bake the chicken in the preheated oven until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. The time will depend on how thinly you pounded the breasts, between 18-25 minutes. Allow to rest for five minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Notes

*I have been using these re-usable silicone food storage bags for this task. I pop them right into the dishwasher afterwards and my chicken doesn’t have to touch plastic wrap.
