  3. Squeeze any and all excess liquid out of the spinach and discard the water.

  4. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the spinach, cream cheese, artichokes, mozzarella, parmesan and garlic; mix well to combine.

  5. Stuff chicken with 1 to 2 tablespoons of the spinach artichoke dip, spreading evenly with the back of the spoon. Reserve the leftover dip for later.

  6. Seal chicken breasts with two or three toothpicks near the opening to keep the dip inside while cooking.

  7. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet or non stick pan over medium-high heat. Sear chicken until golden. Flip and sear on the other side, covering pan with a lid, until cooked through. This will take about 6 to 7 minutes per side.
