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.

Sautéed Spinach


This year I have been lucky enough to have grown some spinach in my garden.  I can tell you there is a huge difference in taste and texture when compared with your typical store bought spinach.  I will now make sure I grow this every year in my garden.

Ingredients:

1 large bunch of your favorite spinach

2 strips of bacon cut in small slices (a small piece of sausage or salami will work as well)

Salt and pepper

Grated parmesan cheese

Directions:

Cook the bacon in a medium hot skillet.  When crisp drain most of the bacon grease and add the spinach on top of the cooked bacon.  Season with salt and pepper.  Fold the spinach over itself till it starts to wilt.  Remove from pan and serve with grated parmesan cheese on top.
