Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs. chicken breast, skin-on
  • 9 oz. spinach
  • 1 tbs. coconut oil
  • sea salt & black pepper to taste
  • 1 c. pepper jack cheese
  • 3 pce. sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 3 tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbs. fresh basil

Directions

Combine sun-dried tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, garlic, sea salt, olive oil, and fresh basil in a food processor and pulse a few times to combine. Pour the mixture over the raw chicken breasts in a shallow bowl or Ziploc bag to marinate. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or more.

Heat coconut oil in a pan over medium high heat. Add spinach, and toss to coat with the oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Once spinach has wilted down, remove from heat to a separate mixing bowl. Allow to cool.

Take the chicken breasts and cut a pocket on the thickest side of each one. Add shredded pepper jack cheese to the mixing bowl with the cooled spinach and stir. Use a spoon to scoop the mixture and stuff into each pocket of your chicken breasts.

Place on George Foreman grill and cook until done, about 5-7 minutes.

I serve green beans with caramelized onions and almonds on the side.
