Print Recipe


  • 2 Chicken breast boneless/no skin
  • 1 cup Spinach cooked
  • ½ cup Ricotta cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon Nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Black pepper

Topping (optional)

  • 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese grated
  • 3 tablespoons Cheddar cheese grated


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F degrees.
  • Using a sharp knife, make slits in the chicken breasts width-wise that are about ¾ inches apart, making sure not to cut all the way down through the bottom of the chicken breast. 
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • In a bowl mix the spinach and ricotta cheese together.  
  • Season with nutmeg.
  • Stuff the spinach mixture in the slits of the chicken, filling it with the volume you want (I tend to over stuff things)
  • Sprinkle the grated Parmesan and Cheddar cheese over the stuffed chicken breasts (optional)
  • Place each chicken breast onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a greased baking dish.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. 
  • Eat and enjoy
