- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 ripe avocado, pitted and mashed
- 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Using a sharp knife, make a slit in the side of each chicken breast to create a pocket for the stuffing.
- In a bowl, combine the mashed avocado, spinach, Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
- Carefully stuff each chicken breast with the avocado and spinach mixture, ensuring they are evenly filled.
- Heat olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the stuffed chicken breasts for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
- Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the center.
- Remove from the oven and let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving.
This recipe was inspired by my love for creamy textures and vibrant flavors. The combination of creamy avocado and nutritious spinach adds a delightful twist to traditional stuffed chicken breasts. To enhance the taste, consider adding a sprinkle of fresh lemon juice or a dash of your favorite herbs like basil or thyme. Remember to adjust the seasoning to your preference, and feel free to experiment with different cheeses or add a touch of heat with some crushed red pepper flakes.
