Quick Facts

Servings: 4
Cook Time: 25 min.
Red and yellow bell peppers make a colorful filling for the chicken breasts atop a bed of greens.


  • 4 chicken breast halves, boneless and skinless
  • 3 tbls canola oil (divided)
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned (about 1 cup)
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, julienned (about 1 cup)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 3 tbls butter (divided)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbls lemon zest
  • 1 tbls fresh thyme
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 1/2 lb spinach leaves
  • 1/4 lb watercress


  • Preheat oven to 400° F. In sauté pan over medium-low heat, warm one tablespoon canola oil. Add red and yellow peppers; sweat until slightly browned, about 5 minutes. Refrigerate to cool.
  • Cut slit in underside of each breast half, creating a pocket. Stuff peppers into breast slits. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
  • In large, ovenproof sauté pan, warm remaining two tablespoons canola oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sear 2 minutes. Place pan in oven; cook 8 minutes, then turn and cook additional 4 minutes.
  • While chicken is cooking in oven, place chicken stock and bouillon cube in deep saucepan; bring to a simmer. Add spinach leaves and watercress, stirring and tossing well until wilted, about 2 - 3 minutes. Remove greens from pan, reserving stock. Drain greens on paper towels. Boil stock and cook until liquid is reduced and begins to thicken, about 5 minutes. Whisk in one tablespoon butter.
  • Remove chicken from oven, place pan over burner on medium heat and add remaining 2 tablespoons butter, garlic, lemon zest and thyme. Baste chicken with butter sauce for thirty seconds; remove pan from heat.
  • To serve, place spinach and watercress leaves in center of bowl or on plate. Top with chicken breast half. Spoon sauce over greens.
