Now, every time I am in my kitchen, I feel like Bill Nye the Science Guy. The theme song was catchy and always made me want to dance. I also heard that Bill Nye recently made a TV comeback. That is a good thing because his show was quite informative and the theme song had a nice beat. It always grabbed my attention and made me want to sway from side to side when I was very young.

That is exactly how you are going to feel with these Cheesy Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts. You might do a little two-step with the cheese hanging from the corner of your mouth and the chicken settling in your stomach. 

I like to buy hearty chicken breasts. I make it a priority in my budget to buy organic chicken. That is my choice. Everything is so expensive today, but I won’t bend on my meat rule. Perhaps, there is something you won’t waiver on either.

Fortunately, this dish will allow for leftovers, especially if you are cooking for one or two. I am the leftover queen. Any chance I get to just reheat and eat my food the next day makes me a happy camper.  

Most of us already have many seasonings in our cabinets. I often find myself looking for a certain seasoning, and as I am rummaging through my many seasonings, I chuckle because I have multiples of certain ones. I need to make a mental note that I no longer need garlic powder, at least for a while. Can you relate?

For this Cheesy Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast recipe, you will need only four seasonings that I am pretty sure you already have in your pantry. I know you have salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic. And, if you “Do Not” have garlic, I have Plenty to share! Do Enjoy this Delicious Dish!

  1. This looks wonderful. I don’t use many frozen veggies, I try and keep fresh on hand. Do you think you could use fresh spinach if you “wilt” it ahead of time?
