Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach and Cheese

Step up your weekly chicken dinner with a Combi-Steam oven recipe that uses two-stages in Combination Mode.  During stage one a flavorful stuffing of cheeses and spinach cooks inside the chicken and during stage two the broil mode gives a crunchy and browned breadcrumb finish. It’s a beautifully plated meal when accompanied by your favorite orzo side dish.
