Stuffed Chicken Breast with Sour Cream Sauce

I have been in love with this dish from ages, till date its one of my favourite recipes. I had it for the first time in a swanky Italian restaurant and wondered how did the chef managed to do so. So let unveil the secret of this delicious recipe and impress your family and friend. I am using spinach, mushroom and mozzarella for stuffing the chicken breast.  Chicken breasts are white meat and are relatively dry.

Ingredients:

Chicken breast:                      2 medium sized
Spinach:                                 1/2 cup ( blanched and chopped)
Mushroom:                            1 cup
Yellow onion:                         1 Medium
Mozzarella cheese
Crème fraîche:                        1/2 cup ( Substitute: Sour cream)
Dried oregano
Garlic:                                    2 cloves
White pepper
Salt to taste
Olive oil


Method:

1) Heat some oil in a pan; add oregano and garlic stir in for a minute. Add some onion, mushroom and spinach. stir for 3-4 minutes until water run dry. Season it with salt & pepper.
2) Once cold add shredded mozzarella.
3) Using a sharp pointed knife make a cut from the thicker side of the breast. Try to insert the knife to make a pocket in the chicken breast. 
4) Use your thumb to clear the pocket and stuff the filling tightly.
5) Prepare both the chicken breast with the stuffing sprinkle some salt and pepper over it. Heat some oil in a pan and cook both side at low to medium heat until cooked. Or you can also grill it at 230 degree celsius for 15 minutes turning it once.
6) For the sauce heat some olive oil in a pan. Add some garlic, half onion finely chopped, and 1/2 cup mushroom finely chopped. Saute it for 2 minutes. Add the cream, simmer it at low temp. Season it with salt and pepper.
7) Serve it hot with some oven grilled vegetables.
