Stuffed Chicken Florentine Recipe

Written on May 1, 2014

Stuffed Chicken Florentine is back by popular demand for Eat-A-Dish for Make-A-Wish® now through July 2nd, and now you can try the recipe at home. Enjoy from our table to yours.

Stuffed Chicken Florentine Recipe

Serves 2

Ingredients
3 oz ricotta cheese
1 oz fresh spinach, cut ¾”
4 oz shredded mozzarella
¼ tsp minced garlic
3 oz asiago cheese
Two 4 oz Boneless chicken breasts
1 cup seasoned all purpose flour   (add your favorite herbs and spices to flour)
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg
2 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp canola oil

Instructions
Combine ricotta, spinach, 2 oz mozzarella, minced garlic and asiago cheese in a mixing bowl and mix until well incorporated. Set aside. This mixture can be made a day in advance, too.

Butterfly 4oz chicken without cutting all of the way through.  Gently pound so the chicken is easy to fill and seal.  Split the filling mixture in half.  Put half of the filling in one chicken breast and repeat. Fold over the chicken breast to ensure that you are securing the mixture inside.

Put seasoned flour in a flat and shallow dish.  Whisk the egg and the water together in separate container. Place seasoned breadcrumbs in a separate shallow dish or plate.

Dredge your chicken stuffed with the spinach filling in your seasoned flour, then your egg wash, and then your bread crumbs ensuring total coverage.  Repeat for the other chicken breast.

In a sauté pan or griddle, add canola oil.  Cook on one side about 3 minutes until golden brown.  Flip and cook and additional 3 minutes.  Pull from the sauté pan and place on a baking sheet.  Cover with remaining 2 oz shredded mozzarella and bake at 350 degrees for about 2 minutes or until center is 165 degrees.

We serve our Stuffed Chicken Florentine with angel hair pasta and a white wine garlic cream sauce with spinach, tomatoes, and onions. Try this with your favorite pasta or favorite seasonal vegetables.

A la Carte – Earth Day Recipes

Written on April 22, 2014

We have collected some sustainable and seasonal Earth Day recipes so you can enjoy what you’re cooking and feel great about it too.

Maggiano's Earth Day Recipes

If you like to shop and eat with the season, Giada De Laurentiis’ Spicy Parmesan Green Beans & Kale recipe is a great way to use the season’s best ingredients.

Pesto can feature more than basil. Parsley, arugula and spinach are just a few greens that you can use with traditional pesto ingredients like garlic, parmesan, and olive oil. Michael Chiarello’s Arugula Pesto recipe won’t disappoint, and it is a great addition to your pasta

Did you know that all Alaskan wild salmon are sourced from environmentally sound fisheries? Maggiano’s Balsamic Glazed Salmon with Grilled Asparagus is a fresh, spring-inspired recipe that packs a lot of flavor.

Here are more deliciously green recipes from our table to yours: Maggiano’s green recipes.
