These Summer Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts are the perfect combination of summer flavours, using seasonal veggies like sweet corn, roasted red peppers and pesto!
I have to say, I’m a chicken fiend. I eat boneless, skinless chicken breasts almost every day of the week. An expensive habit I know, but let’s just say I get a little help from the club packs at Costco and my freezer ;). Chicken is my go-to when I’m not sure what I want to have for dinner. It reheats well as leftovers, and it’s a nice, lean protein that really keeps you satiated for a long time. You just can’t go wrong. But sometimes I think we can all agree that the same old chicken dinner gets a little boring sometimes, right?
Well, I’m here to save the day with these Summer Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts! It’s by far going to be your next go-to summer entree, and it’s remarkably easy to throw together and customize to your taste. Forget that old spinach and ricotta version that is so overplayed – add some pesto, sweet corn and roasted red peppers into the mix for some fun seasonal flair!
Summer is all about entertaining for me. In fact, if you haven’t already checked out some of my favourite dishes to serve for summer parties, here’s a handy little list of goodies you can check out for your next get together:
- Mini Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

These Summer Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts are another one of those inherently summer entrees that I think you could add to that list. Couldn’t you see yourself serving this at your next outdoor dinner party?
I made a SUPER easy pesto for these Summer Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts, and I’ve used all kinds of delicious seasonal vegetables like zucchini, corn, red pepper and spinach. You can cheat like I did and use the jarred roasted red peppers, or you get throw ’em on the grill or even in raw to cook inside the chicken for a mildly sweet flavour.
