Chicken Breast stuffed with Ricotta and Gorgonzola


Chicken Breast stuffed with Ricotta and Gorgonzola

What do you do when you have extra ricotta cheese?  Stuff your chicken with it.  I love cooking with chicken because you can do so many things with it.  If you can pound the chicken thin you can stuff it with most anything.  Hope you enjoy.

Ingredients:

2 chicken breasts, pounded thin

Salt and pepper

1 lb. Ricotta cheese, part skim

1 egg

2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese, grated

1 oz. Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled

2 handful of baby spinach

Directions:

Season the pounded chicken breast with salt and pepper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mix the ricotta and egg in a bowl, mix well.  Add the Parmesan cheese and Gorgonzola and mix well.  Fill the center of the chicken breast with the cheese mixture top with the spinach and fold the chicken over tying with kitchen twine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Season the outside with salt and pepper.  Place in a 375 oven for 60 minutes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let rest then slice and serve.  Serve with Brussels Sprouts with Artichoke Hearts and Sauteed Spinach.

    • Thanks for the kind words. The best thing about having a blog is making friends like you. When you do make the dish add a little pasta sauce on top to the ricotta so it stays more moist. Enjoy
