Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken

Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken: Savory Sweet and Satsifying

These chicken breasts are stuffed with flavor. Lots of gooey melty mozzarella cheese, spinach and sun dried tomatoes. Then they are breaded and baked.

When you stuff these chicken breasts, they will be quite full, but remember the spinach will cook down a lot. You will also have to be careful when breading the chicken breasts, if anything falls out just stuff it back in.
