Serves: 4 person(s)

Preparation Time: 30 mins
Cooking Time: 40 mins

Ingredients:

    2 Tbsp olive oil
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1 cup diced tomatoes
    1 tsp minced garlic
    1 (6 oz) bag baby spinach
    1 cup part-skim, shredded mozzarella cheese
    1/4 cup shredded, reduced-fat parmesan cheese
    4 boneless, skinless, medium chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 lbs)
    2 tsp Italian seasoning blend
    1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

Directions:

    Heat oil over medium heat in a nonstick skillet. Add onion and cook, stirring until onions are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and garlic. Add spinach, cover and cook for about 3 minutes until spinach is soft. Remove from heat. Let mixture cool slightly; stir in mozzarella and parmesan.

    Heat oven to 375F. Beginning in the center of the thicker end of the breast, insert a small knife horizontally, stopping about 1 inch from opposite end. Open incision to create a 1-inch-wide pocket and pack 1/4 of the filling mixture into each breast.

    Season chicken with Italian seasoning blend and place in 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Pour broth over chicken. Cover loosely with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Keep warm until served.
