We loved this recipe. I added a little extra cottage cheese and a little garlic. Instead of rolling the chicken, I just butterflied and filled them. It took much longer to cook than recipe stated. I ended up baking it at 400 degrees for about 50 minutes.



Yum!!! delicious and good for you! My boyfriend said that this was absolutely gourmet and couldn't believe that it was actually healthy. The cottage cheese gives it a creamy moist texture without being overpowering. I do think it would work better to butterfly the breasts first, or at least pound them to flatten them a bit so you can put more of the yummy filling in. I covered the breasts with whatever filling was left over, and it was fantastic.



This turned out really picky husband even liked it a lot. Will definitely make again. I sauteed the spinach and onion with a dab of butter and garlic, salt and pepper before adding to the cottage cheese. I also added about 2 tbsp of cream cheese to the mixture. I recommend pounding out the chicken before seasoning (I rubbed chicken with about 1 tbsp of cajun seasoning and 1 tbsp of MAGIC seasoning) because this makes it easy to roll the chicken up. I baked at 400 for about 30 min and added some mozzarella for the last 10 min.
