Cranberry And Brie Stuffed Chicken Breast Recipe
- 2 lb chicken breasts boneless & skinless
- 5 oz Brie cheese cut into 6 long slices
- 1 small onion minced
- 1 large garlic clove minced
- 2 tsp coconut oil divided
- 6 oz spinach chopped
- ½ cup cranberries dried
- ½ tsp thyme dried
- ½ tsp himalayan pink salt
- black pepper
Cut chicken breasts into 6 tenders. Slice each tender lengthwise in the middle but not through.
Open flat and tenderize a bit. Set aside.
Preheat a large non-stick skillet on medium-low heat and swirl oil to coat.
Add garlic and onion, sauté until translucent, stirring occasionally. Add spinach, cranberries, thyme, salt, and pepper; sauté for another minute. Remove from heat.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Divide spinach mixture into 6 piles.
In the middle of an open chicken tender, place a slice of brie and ⅙th spinach stuffing next to it. Fold in half, tuck in the ends and wrap tightly with kitchen twine. Repeat with remaining chicken tenders.
Season your chicken tenders with salt and pepper. Return the skillet to medium heat and swirl remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Add stuffed chicken and sear for about 3 minutes per side.
If your skillet is oven proof, cover it or transfer chicken to a baking dish and cover, and bake for 25 minutes.
Remove from the oven, let chicken stand for 5 minutes and remove the twine. Serve hot with a side of choice, spooning juices on top.
