Yield: 

4 servings

Ingredients: 

4 cups (packed, about 9 ounces) coarsely chopped fresh spinach
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (plain, or tomato and basil)
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 5 ounces each)
2 Tablespoons oil
1/8 teaspoon salt (because feta cheese is salty)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 toothpicks

Instructions: 

1. In a large skillet, heat 1 Tablespoon oil over medium heat and saute garlic and spinach for a few minutes, until spinach is wilted. Remove from heat and toss with feta cheese.

2. Cut a deep pocket into the side of each chicken breast, and fill each with 1/4 of the spinach mixture. Secure with a toothpick.

3. Wipe out skillet and add 1 Tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Lay chicken breasts in skillet, and brown on both sides, sprinkling sides with salt and pepper.

4. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and heat for an additional 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serve hot.

This recipe tastes gourmet but it is so quick and easy to make. We had this for dinner last night and it was a hit. It was sooo yummy and it fits beautifully into my family's low carb lifestyle.
