Goat Cheese & Spinach-Stuffed Warm Chicken Salad


I’m such a firm believer in falling in love with what you’re cooking. Because, if you don’t love what you’re eating, then what’s the point? That’s why I try to incorporate foods and flavours I love into each one of my meals so that I genuinely look forward to my next meal. Plus, it always keeps meal prepping more interesting.

One of my favourite things to elevate are salads, and although a cold salad is fine, a warm salad is where it’s at! This chicken is stuffed with goat cheese (my fave!) & spinach, baked, and then drizzled in a sweet balsamic glaze. I even added some chopped almonds to give it a little crunch. YUM!


I N G R E D I E N T S:

5 oz chicken breast

1 tbsp goat cheese

2 cups spinach or mixed greens

6 cherry tomatoes

1 tbsp balsamic glaze

7 raw, unsalted almonds

salt, pepper, garlic, oregano & chilli flakes

D I R E C T I O N S:

  • using a sharp butchers knife, slice your chicken breast (almost) in half ensuring that there’s a big enough pocket to stuff your goat cheese in

  • fill the pocket with 1 tbsp crumbles goat cheese and a small handful of spinach before closing the pocket shut and placing the chicken seam-side down

  • season the top and bottom of chicken with a bit of salt, pepper, oregano, garlic & chilli flakes

  • bake chicken in oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes

  • flip, and return to oven for another 12-15 minutes or until fully cooked

  • roughly chop up your 7 almonds until they resemble coarse grounds

  • place your remaining greens on a plate and add some diced tomatoes

  • place your cooked chicken breast on top of your greens

  • drizzle with balsamic glaze

  • top with chopped almonds
