4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 pound spinach, tough stems removed
4 (6-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 ounce goat cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat oven to 400°F.
Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add garlic and cook, stirring until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in spinach and cook, stirring until spinach is wilted and liquid evaporates, about 2 minutes.
Season the spinach well with salt and pepper and transfer to a plate.
Cut a pocket in the chicken breasts. Open each pocket, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then fill evenly with goat cheese and spinach. Seal each with two toothpicks and season outside with salt and pepper.
Heat the remaining oil in the skillet over medium-high heat.
Add chicken and cook, turning once, until well browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.
Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until juices run clear, about 8 minutes. Serve hot.
