Spinach and Brie Chicken

I seem to have a thing for chicken recipes this week! Maybe because chicken is relatively inexpensive and I am watching the grocery budget! This recipe looks super yummy and I pretty much have all the ingredients (a lot of the ingredients are from my previous post).. makes it easy!

Spinach and Brie Stuffed Chicken 


  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 8 thin chicken cutlets (1 1/2 pounds total)

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen leaf spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

  • 4 ounces Brie cheese, cut into 8 slices

  • 1 cup orzo

  • 2 plum tomatoes, cored and chopped

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • How to:

  • Set a large saucepan of salted water to boil. Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. Place chicken on a large rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Dividing evenly, spread one side of each cutlet with mustard; top with spinach, then cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Starting at short end, roll chicken up tightly, and arrange, seam side down, on sheet.

  • Season rolled chicken with salt and pepper. Broil, without turning, until tops are lightly browned and chicken is cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, cook orzo in boiling water until al dente. Drain well; return to pot. Add tomatoes, parsley, butter, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine. Serve stuffed chicken with orzo

  • Not sure if I am going to make the Orzo, I might do a cucumber salad instead!
