Take each chicken breast and with a very sharp knife, slice a pocket into the center. Salt and pepper the inside of this pocket.
Inside the pocket layer the ham, cheese, and spinach. Press the chicken closed. If necessary use a tooth pick to keep the pocket closed.
Salt and pepper the outside of the chicken.
Heat oil in a large skillet over med-high heat, gently lay the chicken breasts in the skillet and sear each side.
Pour chicken broth into the skillet with the chicken, and cover. Reduce to a simmer and cook 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
Remove the chicken from the skillet; add the onion and garlic to the broth, and allow the broth to reduce by half. Stirring occasionally.
Serve chicken topped with sauce and enjoy!

I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute of it. Okay… well, enjoying nearly every minute of it.
In addition, I have disbursed nearly as many years studying Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. Combining these two interests has created a Magickal path where food, spirituality play brilliantly together.
My love of whole healthy foods, and unique recipes has also lead me to help run a local teen cooking program, where I teach kids valuable life skills in the kitchen. In addition, I teach different cooking classes for adults on subjects of making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable and efficient, recipe creation, and how to make cooking a part of your Magickal and spiritual practice.
From this, The Magick Kitchen was born. My journey with you is about developing a spiritual experience with food, far beyond the dull habit of consumption. We have a marvelous opportunity here to take a most basic-mundane task and make it Magickal!
