Tuscan White Bean, Kale and Roasted Pepper Stuffed Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 6, boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 large roasted pepper, diced
  • 1 cup Tuscan White Beans
  • 1 cup chopped, steamed or frozen kale
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400º.

Cut a horizontal slit through thickest portion of each chicken breast halves to form a pocket.

In a small bowl, combine the roasted peppers, white beans, kale and oregano. Season with salt and pepper. Stuff each chicken breast with 2 tablespoons of the mixture and close (you can use a tooth pick if needed). Season the outside of the chicken with salt and pepper.

Using a grill pan or sauté pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken (top side down to start) for 2-3 minutes to brown. Once browned, place the whole pan in the oven and back for 8-10 minutes to cook through.
