Spinach- and Tarragon-Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Stuffing chicken helps to keep breasts moist and prevent them from drying out, but the filling is often bland and disappointing.
Why This Recipe Works
For our Spinach- and Tarragon-Stuffed Chicken Breasts we avoided using chicken breasts that weighed more than 6 ounces each, as the crumbs burned before the chicken was cooked through in larger breasts. Cutting a neat pocket into the chicken eliminated the usual hassle of pounding, rolling, and tying the stuffed chicken breasts. We had to resist the urge to replace fresh tarragon with the dried stuff. Like many herbs, tarragon is tasteless when dried.
