Directions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 2

Place the chicken on a cutting board.

Step 3

With a small, sharp knife, carefully cut a pocket into the side of the chicken breasts, taking care not to cut it all the way through.

Step 4

Season the chicken with salt, both inside and out.

Step 5

In a small bowl, mix the garlic, pesto, cream cheese, and mozzarella.

Step 6

Layer the inside of the chickens with an even amount of the cream cheese mixture, sundried tomatoes, and spinach, securing the openings with toothpicks.

Step 7

Heat the olive oil in a cast-iron pan or oven-proof skillet over medium heat.

Step 8

Sear the chicken until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side.

Step 9

Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast until the chicken is 165 degrees F internally in the thickest part, about 16-18 minutes.

Step 10

Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
