In a hurry? Watch the 60 second recipe video below to learn how to make this! ↓
I gotta tell you, I’ve never really tried stuffing meat before. I’ve ordered stuff like this in restaurants, because it seems so fancy, and it’s always so delicious! So I figured, hey why not go outside my bubble a little and try this recipe myself!
Also, I’ve been missing my date nights with my bf. He works on a cruise ship as a musician and he’s been gone for like 4 months now, ugh!
The first 3 months I was doing ok, just keeping busy with work, creating new recipes for you guys, trying out a new Yoga class, taking some Salsa lessons, and driving my son around to various activities.
I figure if I stay busy enough it’ll take my mind off of Cary being gone. Well it only works temporarily. I think this week I hit a wall. Just feeling blah and missing him like crazy.
So I decided to make a meal that felt like a ‘date night’ meal I could have at home. Except my meal was shared with my son, who by the way makes a great date. I do love our mother and son dinner dates! 🙂
This was really simple to make too! So if you’re looking to have a ‘date night’ dinner at home, or just a great meal with your family, give this a try!
First I just sautéed some baby spinach and garlic for a few minutes.
Then carefully butterfly the chicken breasts making sure you don’t cut all the way through.
Then just place a slice of Provolone Cheese over each piece of chicken and top with the spinach.
Gently fold the chicken over in half and make sure everything is stuffed nicely inside.
Bake it up, and Yum Yum Yum! Soooo Delicious!
