You have to check out this blog from a fellow Jayhawk called Reckless Abandon . I must admit I am not the most domestic lady you will find, but with my new lovely apartment and gorgeous kitchen staring at me daily I have decided that my new task is to teach myself to cook. Slowly but surely I am adding tricks to my repertoire and I feel like Amy Adams character, from Julie and Julia.
This blog is a great source of inspiration and resources for the type of food I like to cook. With a positive attitude and the right resources I think I just might be able to do it. This was my adventure Wednesday evening, another delight from Reckless Abandon with just a few of my own tweaks along the way.
Spinach Stuffed Chicken with Blistered Tomatoes
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
-2 Tbsp light Boursin cheese ( I substituted Light Laughing Cow)
-3 Tbsp thawed and drained frozen spinach
-1 Tbsp dried minced onion (If you prefer less spice, like myself nix the onion and go with an herb cheese)
-1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
-salt and pepper to taste
-1/4 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
-2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
-Assorted Vegetables (I used asparagus and home grown zucchini)
In a small bowl mix cheese, spinach and spices. Slice chicken breasts to create a small pocket, carefully as to not pierce the other side. Add 1.5 tbsp of spinach, cheese and spice mixture to pouch and use remaining top chicken.
