Equipment

  • Oven tray

Ricotta and Spinach Filling

  • 1 1/2 cups of spinach

Instructions

  • Start by cutting pockets into each chicken fillet. Then, add a splash of oil to the chicken fillets and season chicken fillets with salt to taste, paprika to taste, onion powder and garlic powder. Make sure you season inside of the chicken pockets as well. Next, leave chicken fillets to marinate in the fridge while you make the filling.
