Step 1: Preheat Oven

For frozen spinach, make sure to thoroughly remove all of the liquid. Defrost it and then, using a paper towel or dish towel, place spinach inside the towel and squeeze all of the liquid out of the spinach.

Step 3: Stuff Chicken Breasts

Make a slit in each chicken breast down the middle. Be careful not to cut all the way through. Take about 1/4 cup of filling and stuff inside chicken breasts, then secure with a toothpick. Season the top of the breasts with salt and pepper.

Step 4: Sear Chicken Breasts

Heat an oven proof skillet to medium high heat. Add oil, and then add chicken breasts, seasoned side down, and sear for 5 minutes. Season the second side with salt and pepper at this time. Flip the chicken breasts and then place into preheated oven.

If you don't have an oven proof skillet, simply sear in a pan and then transfer to a baking sheet before putting in the oven to bake!

Step 5: Bake Chicken

Bake the stuffed chicken breasts for 15-17 minutes until cooked through. Serve immediately.
