I have learned many things over the years, I take really good notes, I’m addicted to chocolate, I can’t draw worth a lick, and I procrastinate everything. Well, by everything I mean the non-crucial stuff…well sometimes. It is a disease really. I procrastinate almost everything and it isn’t even like I want to, it just happens. This is one reason this blog post has taken so darn long. I always start if off and then something comes up or I get distracted (accidentally or on purpose) but either way, something gets in the way of me finishing it off. So, enough procrastinating for me, it is time to finally publish this blog post.
The Crossfit Open is over (finally) and I am able to concentrate on other more important things, like cooking! I was on a very boring kick of the same old thing. I was getting super sick of my normal baked chicken. So, I decided to spice it up a bit. I came up with this new chicken alternative all by myself and it actually tasted pretty good.
The pictures are TERRIBLE, but it looked really good in person.
1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 cups spinach
garlic (minced or cloves- i used both)
1 jar of sundried tomatoes (I used the ones in olive oil for convenience)
Preheat the oven to 375. First clean and pat dry the chicken breasts. Lay them out on some plastic wrap and beat until thin (luckily my super awesome neighbor let me use her meat tenderizer-thanks Allison). Put the spinach into a food processor and pulse until chopped. Once spinach is done place one breast out on cutting board, spoon chopped spinach, sun dried tomatoes and garlic onto the breast, sprinkle with seasoning. Next take one side of the chicken breast and roll up into a cinnamon roll type shape. Wrap two bacon slices around the outside of the chicken and place into a glass baking dish. Repeat with other chicken breasts. Once all chicken is rolled and placed in dish, cover with tin foil and cook for 25 minutes. Then take tin foil off and cook of an additional 10 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. This will help the bacon get nice and crispy. Then enjoy!
So until next time, I promise it won’t be as long for my next post!!
