Spinach-Stuffed Chicken Breasts....


This is a spicy version of spinach stuffed chicken breasts. Enjoy!


  • 1 (10 ounce) package fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded pepperjack cheese
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 8 slices bacon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Place spinach in a large glass bowl and heat in the microwave for 3 minutes, stirring every minute or so, or until wilted. Stir in the sour cream, pepper jack cheese and garlic.

Lay the chicken breasts out on a clean surface, and spoon some of the spinach mixture onto each one. Sprinkle with pepper. Roll up the chicken to enclose the spinach, then wrap each chicken breast with two slices of bacon. Secure with toothpicks and arrange in a shallow baking dish.

Bake uncovered for 35 minutes, then increase the heat to 500 degrees and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes to brown the bacon.
