  • Put the chicken breasts into a bowl and brush them with half of the olive oil.
  • Add the paprika, salt, pepper, the garlic, the onion, and brush the chicken with them until completely coated.
  • Use a knife to cut the chicken breasts lengthwise, starting from the thicker side, making sure you do not cut them all the way through. This way, you will create a parcel with the chicken breast.
  • Carefully open the chicken breast parcel and season it with salt and pepper.
  • Finely chop the spinach, the garlic, the spring onion, the dill, and add them into a bowl.
  • Add the cream cheese, the parmesan, the mayonnaise, mix with a spoon and divide the mixture among the chicken breast parcels. Optionally, tie each breast with kitchen twine to secure the stuffing.
  • Heat the rest of the olive oil in a frying pan and sauté the chicken breasts for 2 minutes on each side, until they are golden. 
  • Transfer the breasts to a baking pan and bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until they are cooked through.

  • Remove the baking pan from the oven.
