All Wrapped Up!

Last week our dear Cate over at Sweetnick's made a surprise announcement...she just welcomed a new member to the family, her precious little Madeline Olivia! That is why we took a break from ARF Tuesday. However, Cate is super-mom and is already back at it. In honor of her being "all wrapped up" with her new bundle of joy, who apparently has her brother, and I'm sure Daddy, wrapped around her little finger already, my entry for ARF is chicken breasts wrapped around spinach and goat cheese! I just kind of threw this together one day and it was pretty good. The only thing I need to work on is the exact timing of the cooking and the seasoning. This is a pretty quick and versatile meal. Stuff the thinned chicken breasts with whatever you want and cook away. It's also easy to make for just a few people! Later in the week, I cut these up and served them on top of a salad. Great leftovers! So, for all you busy moms and dads, or even those of you who are just busy...give these a try and stop by Cate's to see the other great recipes AND her new family member! Spinach and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts
as many chicken breasts as you want, pounded to 1/4 inch thick
goat cheese
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. After you pound the chicken (which is done well between some cling wrap with either a meat pounder thingy or even a rolling pin - my tool of choice!) place several leaves of spinach and a little goat cheese inside. Then roll the chicken fajita style. Place the seal on the bottom of the pan. Cook for around 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Enjoy! I served with salsa!

I never, ever think to stuff chicken breasts. The way you talk about it though, it does sound really easy,and it sounds like I need to get over my fear.
