Spinach Ricotta Hasselback Chicken

Today we are making Spinach Ricotta Hasselback Chicken. I’m so excited too because it looks just absolutely Heavenly! Juicy boneless skinless chicken breasts and rich spinach along with smooth yet zippy ricotta cheese and just the hint of nutmeg topped with melted Parmesan cheese and Cheddar cheese. Can you say YUMMY!!! I came across the Spinach Ricotta Hasselback Chicken recipe on the blog Divalicious Recipes when I was looking for some low carb ideas and I just fell in love with it. I did, however, at first decide to substitute broccoli for the spinach because I’m not too sure how the kids feel about spinach but then I went ahead and used spinach anyway. We grown-ups love to eat spinach regularly because it has great taste, and it’s a great source of nutrients, vitamins and is low in carbs. Well, enough talking- let’s cook because I have just been waiting to try this so here we go.

Ingredients

  • 6 Breasts Boneless Skinless Chicken
  • 3 Cups Spinach Cooked
  • 1 1/2 Cups Ricotta Cheese
  • 3/4 tsp. Nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F degrees.
    Using a sharp knife, make slits in the chicken breasts width-wise that are about 3/4 inches apart, making sure not to cut all the way down through the bottom of the chicken breast.
    Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
    In a bowl mix the spinach and ricotta cheese together.
    Season with nutmeg.
    Stuff the spinach mixture in the slits of the chicken, filling it with the volume you want (I tend to overstuff things)
    Sprinkle the grated Parmesan and Cheddar cheese over the stuffed chicken breasts (optional)
    Place each chicken breast onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a greased baking dish.
    Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.

Healthy 20 Minute Sausage And Veggies

Healthy 20 Minute Sausage And Veggies

Our family just loves to experiment with new and different kinds of food and recipes. Most recently we have been baking a lot of one sheet wonders- I call them that because they have literally saved my life on the nights when we need to get something not only healthy but delicious on the table and in a hurry. I love love love them. There are so many different variations you can throw together. Tonight I threw together Sausage and Vegetables and were they ever tasty! I got the idea from Gimme Delicious which is a food blog full of all kinds of scrumptious recipes- I could watch her cooking videos for hours if she didn’t make me so hungry that it hurts! I have several lined up to try next. I know I know- you probably want the recipe right about now rather than listen to me go on and on which I really can’t blame you especially if you’re waiting to try the recipe yourself— you definitely should by the way! So here it is:

A Little Bit About Me

I’m married to the love of my life, I have four amazing and precious children, three girls, and one boy. (He’s the baby of the family!)O:)
My husband and I work full time together practicing family law in Phoenix, Arizona and on this blog (I am just crazy about blogging- I’ve always loved living the writer’s life!)
We have two puppy dog children, Boo Boo, a German Shepherd/Lab mix, and Minnie, a Miniature Toy Poodle/Chihuahua mix (we just got her at 6 weeks so she’s our new baby of the family.)
I love elephants, snowmen, zigsaw puzzles, and the color pink and our family loves to travel and take out our boat regularly on the lake. 
We simply can’t sit still.
Along with traveling extensively, we’ve moved nine times in sixteen years so we know a thing or two about moving with a somewhat large family, organizing, and decorating.
I started taking this blogging thing seriously just this last year although I’ve been blogging, building websites, and marketing since 2002. Holy cow! That’s a long time!O:)
We have several courses that we will be releasing soon as we decided to share some of this incredible knowledge we have been fortunate enough to come across- all without the stress and hassle we went through getting here.
Where’s here- We get to travel often all because of this blog and the best thing about it is- we can work from anywhere! O:) If we didn’t enjoy representing our clients so much I’m not sure where we’d be right now!O:) Read more here…

Hi there new friend! Be sure to visit me again and again at HerBloggingBiz.com and to leave me your email address below so I can send you updates on all the fabulous family finds I come across in my travels in the Blogosphere! I promise you won’t want to miss out on any of them! O:)
