Description: 

Chicken breasts stuffed with spinach and feta cheese, seasoned and browned in a skillet

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.

Tammy's Review: 

This is such an easy recipe to make, and yet looks so fancy!! It's also really healthful. And, it tastes so good! I like it served with fried rice or egg noodles. Yum! My rating: 9/10.

Easy gourmet foods are wonderful!

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.
