Spinach & Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Note: This article may contain commentary or the author's opinion.

I love cooking and trying new things. I will spend hours on my weekends researching new dishes to try throughout the week. It’s pretty rare that I cook the same thing multiple times unless I REALLY like something. This is one of those meals! It is fairly healthy, but definitely does not taste like it. The prep is super easy and goes really quick. One of the best parts is you probably already have a lot of the ingredients on hand! I HIGHLY recommend trying this if you are a fan of chicken and cheese (who isn’t??)! You will not regret it!
