Sundays are for naps right? Well my husband doesn’t think so.
I’m tryna nap and he’s tryna gym it… no thanks. Not today.
So guess what? I’m trying to sneak in a nap before dinner. But I’m also trying to make it look like I spent a ton of time on an amazing meal. You following me?
Yeah, you guessed it. Another easy peasy dinner from little ol me.
This one is pretty easy. And pretty good. And pretty healthy.
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 boneless chicken breasts
oil (your choice—I love avocado oil)
1 plate full of bread crumbs (I like the Publix brand Italian ones)
3 handfuls baby spinach
¾ cup feta cheese
3 tbsp butter
½ yellow onion
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.
Put some oil in a skillet and let it heat up before adding in your chopped onion and spinach.
Add your spinach in a handful at a time. I had NO idea how much spinach it would take to make this meal, but you’ll soon see that 3 handfuls isn’t a lot once it starts cooking.
While that cooks, go ahead and melt your butter in a bowl.
Also, get our your baking sheet and spray with cooking oil. (I use aluminum foil because it’s so much easier to clean up) And I don’t want to spend my Sunday doing dishes OK!?
Take your chicken breasts and cut a slit into each one horizontally. Don’t cut all the way to the end. You’ll want it to open up like a butterfly. Lay these out on your cutting board. Once your spinach and onion is done cooking, take the pan off the heat and add in your feta cheese.
Be generous here, the more cheese the better. Mix that up reaaaaal good.
Once it’s all mixed in, add your mixture to the insides of your chicken. Don’t be afraid to add too much, just make sure it’s not spilling out too much and that they can easily close.
Once your chicken it stuffed, go ahead and close them as tight as they can go.
Now, take your butter and spread it all over the chicken.
Spread bread crumbs all over the chicken, front and back, until they’re fully coated.
Return them to your greased baking sheet and bake them for about 30 minutes.
I like to serve this with rice (I’ve been loving cauliflower rice) & some zucchini and sqaush. So while your chicken is cooking, it gives you the perfect time to make some rice and veggies to serve with it.
Lookie there, dinner’s done. Just don’t tell my husband it only took 30 minutes.
P.S. Here’s a picture of my cat taking his Sunday nap.
