A Single Girls Stuffed Chicken Breast
Why I Love This Recipe
I just made this for a date the other evening...it was impressive, not only to me, but my date. If you're looking for love, or just plain hungry...give this a try.
Ingredients You'll Need
2 large chicken breasts, butterflied
1 package fresh baby spinach
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup sundried tomatoes
4 slices of pancetta
salt and pepper to taste
Lemon Cream Sauce
1 cup of half and half
2 tbsp of butter (you can substitute out the butter, but you'll need the fat from the half and half for the cream sauce to work)
Juice from half a lemon
1 tbsp grated parmesean cheese (dont bother with the fancy stuff...he won't know real parmesean from the kind you shake out)
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp thyme
salt to taste
Salt and pepper chicken.
Saute spinach with a little olive oil, add garlic, tomatoes, and pancetta till cooked down completely.
Stuff in chicken breasts and place on a hot grill pan for 10 undisturbed minutes on both sides.
Remove grillpan from heat and place in a 325 degree over to make sure the inside cooks for another 5-10 minutes, or until the sauce is done.
The spinach will keep it nice and moist.
Add all ingredients, bring to a boil. Wisk consistently.
Lower temperatures and let sauce thicken slowly while the chicken is cooking.
Drizzle chicken with sauce.
Serve chicken and sauce over a bed of rice and voi'la!
Instant date...or at least you'll get a second one for sure.
