Ingredients
  • one 7 to 8 ounce chicken breast
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1½ cups packed baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons julienne sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon toasted pine nuts
  • 1 tablespoon chiffonade fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. In a large saute pan on high heat add in 1 tablespoon of olive oil and caramelize the garlic. Once the garlic is brown add in spinach, tomatoes, pine nuts, basil and cook fora 2-4 minutes on low heat. Adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the chicken breast on a large piece of plastic wrap and simply fold over the wrap to make sure no chicken is exposed. Pound out the chicken using a mallet until the chicken is ¼? to ⅓? thick.
  3. Once the chicken is pounded season both sides with salt and pepper. Evenly spread the spinach pine nut stuffing all over the chicken.
  4. Starting at the part of the chicken closest to you, roll it up so that there is no stuffing being exposed.
  5. In a medium saute pan on high heat with 1 tablespoon of olive oil sear the stuffed chicken on all sides until golden brown. Finish in the oven on 350° for 8 to 12 minutes.
  6. To plate slice the chicken and serve with balsamic glaze.
