Spinach Stuffed Chicken

This recipe was an inspiration based on what I had in my pantry, freezer, and a 1/2 bag of fresh spinach. I looked up several recipes and decided what I would use and how much and this was the result.

Ingredients:

4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
1 cup buttermilk (made from instant buttermilk or substitute)
1/2 bag fresh spinach
1 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
1/2 Cup of Miracle Whip/Mayo
1/2 Cup Sun-dried Tomatoes or Roasted Red Peppers
Feta cheese (I used a Seasoned Feta from the farmers market) or cheese of your choice

Take chicken breast and place on plastic wrap and cover with a second piece of plastic wrap and pound the chicken breast until flattened. If the chicken breast is more than 1 inch thick, you can cut it longways to butterfly it to make it thinner before pounding. After all of the pieces are pounded out (great stress reliever), place in a Ziploc bag or deep dish and cover with buttermilk.

Let soak while you get the rest of the ingredients together or up to an hour.

In a separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients.

Put each one of the pounded out chicken breast on the cutting board and place mix in a layer on top.

Roll them up and place a toothpick in to hold (or wrap with bacon- just thought of that….next time).

Take entire roll and place in an oven safe skillet over medium heat to brown the outside of the chicken breast. Turning every 2-3 minutes until all sides are browned.

Place in oven on 350 for 30-40 minutes. Serve by spooning items from the skillet over the chicken breast and with rice and vegetable. Serves 3-4 adults.

Cherri’s Spaghetti Sauce

This recipe is a combination of two recipes that I learned over the years and has always been a hit with those who eat it. It combines some taste italian sausage, store bought sauce and a few ingredients that most people have in their pantry. I hope you will try it and tell me what you think.

Ingredients:

2 slices of a medium yellow onion, diced
1lb Italian Sausage (mild)
1 can spaghetti sauce
1 – 15oz. can of fire roasted or regular tomatoes
1 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
1 Tbsp. Italian Seasoning/Oregano
1 Tbsp. Pesto or Basil
1 tsp. ground Cayenne pepper

Brown the onion and Italian Sausage in a large pot until sausage is cooked through. Then add the rest of the ingredients.

Simmer for 30-45 minutes on Medium heat. It should be more brownish-red now and that means it’s ready.
Serve over Angel Hair or Rotini with a green salad and garlic bread. Serves 4-6 hungry people.
