Goat Cheese & Spinach Stuffed Chicken

Is there anything better than creamy, cheesy spinach dip? The answer is yes, and it’s this stuffed chicken recipe. This recipe takes a classic spinach dip and mixes it up by adding goat cheese and stuffing it into a chicken breast to create the ultimate dinner dish. These chicken breasts are stuffed with a spinach and goat cheese mixture, wrapped in prosciutto and fried until golden brown. If you prefer a healthy option you can opt to bake the chicken rather than breading and frying and it is just as delicious!

The whole dish comes together in 30 minutes and is hearty and filling. I like to serve mine with a pasta side dish and a salad to make a complete meal. This is the perfect quick and easy weeknight dinner that your family will love!
