>So last night I decided to cook something that was a little outside my comfort zone. It was outside my cooking comfort zone not my that-looks-yummy comfort level.
I adapted the recipe I found at allrecipes.com . The recipe is this one specifically, http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Spinach-Stuffed-Chicken-Breasts/Detail.aspx.
I made a few changes. I had no bacon so I skipped that part. I also used shredded mozzarella cheese instead of feta cheese. I also added in some grated Parmesan cheese. I also covered the tops and bottoms of the chicken breasts with a mix of bread crumbs, garlic, black pepper, basil, oregano and white pepper. I also drizzled the bottom of the pan with olive oil and also drizzled the tops of the breaded breasts with it as well. The leftover mixture I had I just placed on the tops of the breasts. I also only used three breasts. And I did not measure out the ingredients so it was all just eyeballed.
|The chicken breasts after they had been cut. I cut through them being careful to not cut all the way through so there would be a pocket to stuff.|
|This is the spinach, mozzarella cheese and mayo mixture before it got stuffed into the chicken breasts.|
|Here are the chicken breasts after they had been dredged into the breadcrumb/seasoning mixture, stuffed and laid in the pan.|
|Here is the chicken breasts topped with the spinach and cheese mixture. Yes that is olive oil from 7-11. We had just moved in and needed some and there is no grocery store near our apartment.|
|That is the finished product. Yes, I know there should be three breasts there but I got ahead of myself in my excitement to try this new dish.|
The verdict seemed to be it was very yummy!! This is something that I never would have thought of attempting to make just a few months ago.
Yes I know the pictures need some improvement. There is very little natural light in my apartment and the rainy weather yesterday did not help the situation at all.
