Chicken Stuffed with whatever- because yummy food inside yummy food is good.

Christmas Eve was a little different for us this year. Usually we have a house full of out of town family for dinner and the menu is planned out weeks in advance. This year it was just my family of five and found myself not even thinking about dinner until 4 o'clock that afternoon.

After scrounging around in the fridge, I managed to come up with some ingredients that I thought would be excellent together:

Sun dried tomato and mozzarella Laughing Cow spreadable cheese
A partial wedge of Smoked Gouda
a handful of baby spinach leaves
a tube of crescent rolls
3 chicken breasts

First, I cut a pocket in the chicken and spread the Laughing Cow cheese.

Then I added several slices of the Smoked Gouda to the pocket and seasoned the outside with freshly ground salt and pepper.

I seared the chicken in a hot pan.

This is when I realized that I had forgotten the spinach so I quickly stuffed it in.

After the chicken breasts were browned on each side, I rolled them in a rectangle of the crescent roll dough and baked them for 25 minutes.

The finished product looked good, tasted great and everyone loved it!

This was really simple and used up several ingredients from my fridge. I would definitely have to say that stuffing yummy food inside other yummy food is always good, especially when you wrap it in dough. next time, I think I need to figure out how to add bacon!
