How to make stuffed chicken breast

Let’s start preparing the filling of our stuffed chicken breast: add the previously cooked and chopped spinach to the ricotta, mix and add the grated Parmesan.

Continue with a pinch of salt and pepper, a grated nutmeg and an egg.

Now let’s take our two chicken breasts and create a pocket for each, cutting the fillets lengthwise.

Let’s stuff them with the filling. Make sure you don’t overfill it or it will come out when cooked. You can also close the pocket with toothpicks.

Heat some extra virgin olive oil in a pan and sear the chicken breasts on both sides for a few minutes. Let’s go up and pepper.

Transfer the two fillets to a pan, on the bottom of which we first poured a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, and cook in a ventilated oven at 170 ° for about 15 minutes.
