How to make Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Step 2: On a cutting board, place the chicken breasts and drizzle with oil.

Step 3: To a small bowl, add the paprika, 1/2 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mix well until blended, then evenly sprinkle this on both sides of the chicken.

Step 4: Into the side of each chicken breast, cut a pocket using a sharp knife. Set aside.

Step 5: To a small mixing bowl, whisk the cream cheese, Parmesan, mayonnaise, spinach, garlic, red pepper, and the rest of the half tsp of salt until well mixed.

Step 6: Into each chicken, evenly spoon the spinach mixture.
