Spinach and Gouda Stuffed VegChicken

One of Deniz’ favorite meat recipes is stuffed chicken.  He had it once in the Philippines 2 years ago and has been raving about it ever since.  So I had to find a way to make it vegetarian at home.  We pulled together a number of recipes to make this concoction.  Pretty good for our first try!

Ingredients:

Vegan chicken dough

Stuffing:
1/2 lb fresh spinach
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 cup gouda cheese
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
1/2 of a (6 ounce) can black olives, sliced

Garnish:
Alfredo sauce, heated (optional)

Instructions:

Prepare the chicken dough per the instructions but do not cook.  Separate into four breast-sized pieces.

Saute spinach until spinach in 2 T of cooking oil until it it is all wilted. Remove spinach from heat and add to a medium bowl with Parmesan cheese, half of the gouda cheese, bread crumbs, beaten egg and olives. Mix the ingredients until well incorporated.

Flatten a chicken dough portion into a rectangle.  Place 1/4 of the spinach mixture in the middle of the rectangle.  Roll and cover the spinach mixture completely.  Repeat for the remaining three chicken dough pieces.

Wrap each stuffed veg chicken in aluminum foil.  Steam in a steamer for 40 minutes.  Unwrap and cool.  Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and broil for 5 minutes to toast cheese.  Top with the alfredo sauce.
