Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp Hy-Vee Select olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (6 oz) pkg fresh spinach leaves, coarsely chopped (about 6 c.)
  • 1/4 c. oil-packed sundried tomatoes, drained and chopped
  • 1 tsp Hy-Vee dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp Hy-Vee salt
  • 1/4 tsp Hy-Vee black pepper
  • 3/4 c. Hy-Vee grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 3 oz Hy-Vee cream cheese, softened
  • 6 medium chicken breast halves
  • 1 1/2 c. Hy-Vee 33%-less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp Hy-Vee lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Hy-Vee Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 c. Hy-Vee panko breadcrumbs

All you do

  1. In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Sauté garlic until tender. Add spinach; cook until wilted. Remove from heat; stir in sundried tomatoes, thyme, salt and pepper until well mixed. Stir in 1/2 cup of the Parmesan and the cream cheese.
  2. To flatten chicken breasts, place one at a time in a quart freezer bag or in double thickness of plastic wrap. With a rolling pin or the flat side of a meat mallet, pound to 1/2-inch thickness. Spread about 3 rounded tablespoons spinach mixture on rough side of chicken, leaving a 1-inch border; roll up tightly. Secure each with a toothpick. Place chicken in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. For sauce, whisk together chicken broth, lemon juice and mustard; pour over chicken.
  3. To serve tonight, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs; sprinkle over chicken. Bake, uncovered, for 35 to 45 minutes or until internal temperature of chicken is 165 degrees. Strain sauce; serve with chicken.
  4. To freeze for later, cover baking dish tightly with plastic wrap and foil. Label and freeze up to 3 months. Thaw in refrigerator, covered, for 36 to 48 hours. Remove plastic wrap and foil. Combine 1/4 cup Parmesan and breadcrumbs; sprinkle over chicken. Bake, uncovered, in a 375 degrees oven for 65 to 75 minutes or until internal temperature is 165 degrees. Strain sauce; serve with chicken.
