Love stuffed chicken breast recipes? So do we! It's a way to take that boring old chicken dinner and put a creative spin on it. Like our Cheesy Stuffed Herb Chicken! After butterflying the breasts, we stuff them full of cheese and spinach for a flavor-packed dinner the whole family will love! 

What You'll Need

  • 10 butter-flavored crackers
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt for sprinkling
  • Black pepper for sprinkling
  • 1/4 cup refrigerated garlic-herb cheese spread
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 8 slices Muenster cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a resealable plastic bag, crush crackers; add butter, then mix and set aside.
  3. Place chicken breasts on a cutting board and butterfly it. To do so, place your hand on top. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut horizontally three-quarters of the way through each breast, so it opens like a book. Lightly sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.  
  4. Evenly spread 1 tablespoon garlic-herb cheese on one side of each breast. Top the cheese with spinach. Fold over top half of each chicken breast, and place on baking sheet.
  5. Bake 15 minutes, then top each chicken breast with 2 slices Muenster cheese and cracker topping. Bake 10 more minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.

Could you make this using butterfly boneless pork chops?

Yes you can!

The recipe is easy to follow and the results are excellent. Very tasty chicken dish. I mixed up the topping while the chicken was baking for 15 minutes. I melted the butter in a small saucer in the microwave and then stirred in the crushed ritz crackers. I used 2 breasts and 2 thighs and that worked out well. (My husband prefers thighs.)
