- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic crushed
- ½ tsp black pepper
- ½ tsp salt
Spinach Artichoke Filling
- 1 tbsp olive oil

- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 4 cups spinach
- ½ cup artichoke hearts chopped
- ½ cup greek yogurt
- ¼ cup goat cheese crumbled
- ¼ tsp lemon zest
- ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Place the chicken in a large plastic bag with the chicken marinade ingredients.
Place in the refrigerator to marinade for at least 30 minutes, up to 8 hours.
To make the spinach artichoke filling, add the olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat.
Add the onion, cook 4-5 minutes, then add the garlic and spinach, cook for 2-3 minutes or until the spinach is cooked down. Remove from the heat and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine the artichoke hearts, greek yogurt, goat cheese, lemon zest, red pepper flakes and sea salt. Add the cooked spinach, onion and garlic.
Remove the chicken from the marinade, butterfly the chicken breasts, slicing through the middle, but not all the way through.
Fill each chicken breast with the spinach artichoke filling, fold the chicken over the filling, then wrap each chicken breast in foil.
Place on a grill over medium heat for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through.
- Remove from the gill, remove the foil from each chicken breast, slice and serve.
