How many more chicken recipes can be invented and reinvented? Whatever it is, I hope to try them all :). The recipe below is a quick, colorful and easy to make. I really liked the pepper-chicken-spinach-Parmesan combination and I will definitely repeat it, but on a larger scale, that is, when we have guests.

  • 400g sliced ​​chicken breast
  • 3 red bell peppers (considered one person pepper)
  • 200g fresh spinach
  • 50-100g parmesan
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 150g cheese & # 8222currators & # 8221 (cheese, cheese)
  • salt, pepper, olive oil

1. Preheat the oven to 180g C.

We wash the peppers, cut a lid on them and dig out the seeds.

We beat the chicken breast slices with the hammer for the slices, not very thin just a little :), we grease them with olive oil and we season them with salt, pepper and crushed garlic.

On each slice we put a few spinach leaves, then a little Parmesan, roll and put them inside a pepper. Crowd them well so you won't be sorry :). Place the peppers in the pan, cover them with a lid made of all the peppers and bake for 30-40 minutes.

3. Take the lid, grate the cheese and put it in the oven for another 5 minutes.

Serve with vegetables, mashed potatoes or just a salad.

The breast is soft, juicy and has an accentuated pepper aroma.

I apologize for the photos, I took them in a hurry and I didn't have time for arrangements :).
