Involtini di pollo ripieni di Spinach (stuffed chicken breast) - best enjoyed with your favorite glass of wine! 

Ingredients

  • 1 whole boneless skinless chicken breast – thick cut
  • 1 (5 oz) package of Olivia's Organics Baby Spinach
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 whole clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage - chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary - chopped

Preparation

  • Split the whole chicken breast by cutting along the connecting seam into two halves. Cut each half in half, leaving you with 4 sections. Cover the chicken with Saran Wrap or waxed paper and pound each piece until thin. 
  • Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Season with salt and add the spinach, cooking just until wilted. Remove spinach to a bowl filled with cold water and ice. Once cooled, drain, squeeze out water and set aside. 
  • Lay out the 4 pieces of chicken, smooth side down. Top with spinach, cheese and season with salt and pepper. Roll up and secure with toothpicks. 
  • Heat butter and oil in a sauté pan over medium high heat and cook chicken until browned on each side. Lower heat to a simmer, add the wine, garlic and fresh herbs. Cover and simmer for approximately 5 to 10 minutes until chicken is cooked through. 
  • To serve, remove the toothpicks and garlic. Plate the chicken and top with the pan sauce.
