    Baked Mediterranean Chicken with roasted red peppers, spinach and cheese

    Chicken does feature quite frequently in my menu plans ... and surely you would agree this Baked Mediterranean Chicken looks delicious. Here is a yummy and easy way to make a typical baked chicken breast more exciting.

    Ingredients:
    6 servings
    3 medium chicken breasts
    1/2 cup roasted red peppers
    2 cups baby spinach
    2 tbsps butter
    2 tbsps shredded parmesan cheese
    1/4 cup light cream cheese

    Directions:
    1. Cut chicken breasts in half through the centre, and pound flat to make 6 cutlets.
    2. In a bowl, add cream cheese, parmesan cheese and chopped roasted red pepper.
    3. Heat butter in a pan, and sauté spinach until wilted. Remove from pan and chop.
    4. Add to bowl and mix with a spoon. Season with salt, pepper, or other preferred herbs and spices.
    5. Spread a large spoonful of the mixture over each chicken cutlet.
    6. Roll the cutlets and place on a lightly greased pan or parchment paper, seam-side down. Season with salt and pepper.
    7. Bake at 400° F (200° C) for 45-60 minutes (depending on your oven). Remove, let cool and enjoy!

    Note: would also be great topped with a little tzatziki or other dressing.

    Prep Time is 10 mins and Cook Time 45 mins
