Preparation – 20 minutes

Peel and finely chop the garlic cloves. Wash the spinach if necessary and remove excess water with a salad spinner.

Heat a dash of olive oil in a medium sized frying pan and sauté the garlic for a minute. Add the fresh spinach in batches and turn off the heat once the spinach has wilted.

Place the spinach in a colander and squeeze out the moisture. Season the spinach with salt, pepper, a teaspoon of curry powder and a generous pinch of nutmeg.

Remove any excess fat and sinew from the chicken breasts and make a slit in each chicken breasts so that you can stuff them.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
