Nutrimeals Sundried Tomato Stuffed Chicken
- Prep: 20 mins
- Cook: 15 mins
- Total: 35 mins
- Servings: 1
- Yield: 1 servings
- 1 medium chicken breast
- 2 ½ teaspoons olive oil
- pinch of salt, or more to taste
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- Pepper to taste
- 3-4 pieces of sundried tomatoes
- 2 slices mozzarella cheese
- 3-4 leaves of fresh basil
- 4-6 pieces of fresh spinach
- 3/4 cup baby potatoes, cut into bite size pieces
- 1/2 cup carrots, coined
- 1/2 cup brussels sprouts, halved
Preheat your oven to bake at 350F, and bring water to a boil in a medium size pot. While your oven is preheating, and water is coming to a boil, prepare your ingredients.
Place the chicken breast in a small bowl and drizzle 1 teaspoon of oil on top, followed by the basil and oregano. Use salt and pepper to taste. Once your chicken breast is seasoned, transfer it to a cutting board. Create a pocket in each chicken breast: Lay the breast on a work surface with the pointed end away from you. Place your hand on top of the chicken breast to keep it steady. Insert a long paring knife in the center of the end closest to you (the rounded end). Move the knife around to enlarge the opening, forming a pocket; be careful not to cut through to the outside of the breast.
Once the chicken breast has a pocket, place the sundried tomatoes, mozarella cheese, basil and spinach inside the pocket. Secure the opening of the pocket with toothpicks if necessary. Place the stuffed chicken breast on a lined sheet tray and place in the oven. Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until chicken has reached an internal temperature of 160F.
Sanitize your work station. On a cutting board, cut your baby potatoes, carrots and brussels sprouts to your desired size. Place your potatoes in the pot of boiling water and cook for 4-6 minutes, until they are slightly under-cooked. Use a spider to remove the potatoes and place in a medium bowl. Now place your carrots and brussels sprouts in the pot of water. Cook until they are slightly under-cooked, for ~4 minutes. Toss the baby potatoes, brussels and carrots in a bit of olive oil and season. Place on lined sheet tray and bake for 10 minutes until starting to turn golden brown.
Remove the chicken breast from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice the chicken and place it on a plate with the baby potatoes, brussels sprouts and carrots. Garnish with fresh parsley, and enjoy!
