I love all the recipes I post on CR (at this point we are up to almost 1000…isn’t that CRAZY?!), but some really stick out to me as exciting right from the moment they’re made. Some of my favorites from before I posted are my Easy S’more Cookies, Baked Chicken Tacos, Salmon with Avocado Salsa, and Melt in Your Mouth Caesar Chicken. I just had a feeling about them right away that you guys would love them.

This 3 INGREDIENT SPINACH DIP STUFFED CHICKEN made me so excited when planning it because I knew it would be simple, flavorful, CHEESY, easy…all the best things. You only have one pot to clean up and it works like a dream for leftovers. What’s not to love? Let’s dig in.

The hack here comes in when making the “spinach dip”. I realized that you could pretttttty much make spinach dip with just some boursin cheese and sauteed spinach. Am I right? Cheesy, herby, amazing goodness. It’s the perfect compliment to chicken and you can use as little or as much as you’d like.

If you want to keep this dish pretty healthy you can use just a bit and still have a creamy amazing dinner. If you want to spoil yourself (and you know this is how I hope you enjoy it) you should really lather it on and let it ooze out while cooking…creating an amazing cheesy buttery sauce at the bottom of the skillet. Serve this bad boy over rice and you’re in business!

I’m a tad obsessed with this Spinach Dip Stuffed Chicken Skillet. If you don’t use all of the “spinach dip” keep the extra in the fridge and use it on anything and everything for the next week! I love mine spread on baked potatoes, used as a dip for crackers, on STEAK (omg on steak)…anything. You’re gonna love it!

If you want to make this a FOUR ingredient recipe, you can add a bit of white wine. You won’t regret it. BUT it’s not necessary. You’re good to go with just three…3…ingredients?! Too good to be true? NOT AT ALL!

Enjoy :)

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons canola, peanut or olive oil
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 1 (5.2 ounce) package garlic-herb cheese, such as Boursin cheese
  • ½ cup dry white wine, optional

Instructions

  1. Cut about a 3-inch wide pocket into the thick side of each breast almost to the other side, but do not cut all the way through. Season both sides of each breast with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Heat oil & butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Turn the heat to medium.
  3. Place the spinach in the skillet and sauté the spinach about 30 seconds, just long enough to wilt but not burn. Dab the spinach on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix the cheese and spinach until combined. Stuff the chicken breasts with the spinach/cheese mixture and secure the breasts with toothpicks.
  5. Place the breasts in the hot skillet and leave for 4 minutes or until the chicken turns golden brown. Carefully turn the breasts over and cook another 3 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Reduce heat to low, add wine (if using), cover and cook another 3-5 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink in the middle. A meat thermometer should read 160°F when placed in the thickest part of the meat.
  7. Enjoy!

Hello! How much butter ate you suggesting to use - only oil is listed. And these are skinless and boneless Chicken breasts i’m guessing. Thank you!
