A mixture of spinach, spices and three kinds of cheese tucked into these chicken breasts makes them taste extra special. "They bake to a beautiful golden brown, so they look lovely on the plate, too," shares Barbara Eitemiller of Churchville, Maryland.

In a large bowl, combine the spinach, cheeses, onion, garlic, salt, nutmeg and pepper. Carefully loosen the skin on one side of each chicken breast to form a pocket. Stuff each breast with 1/2 cup spinach mixture.
Place chicken skin side up in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Combine the oil, paprika, oregano and thyme; brush over chicken. Sprinkle with additional paprika if desired.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until a thermometer inserted into the breast meat reads 170° and juices run clear.
