Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast

This will be the last recipe, I will be posting from a recipezaar member, for a few days, I will be posting a few of my own over the next few days. I made this one a couple of nights ago and it was delicious. I made a couple of changes that had been suggested by other people who had reviewed it. The chicken was moist, tender and full of flavour, I will definitely make this one again.

4 chicken breasts
1 tablespoon instant minced garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (16 ounce) bag spinach (frozen works great)
1 cup feta cheese (I also added chopped sun dried tomato, it went really well with the spinach and feta.)
2 cups seasoned bread crumbs (I used panko flakes, Japanese breadcrumbs, and just seasoned them, since finding these a few years ago I will never go back to regular, I love them.)
1/2 cup butter (melted)


1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Prepare chicken for stuffing.(You can either, slice 2 thick chicken breasts in half and make 4, or beat 4 chicken breast until thin and wide.).

3. Cook spinach in garlic and oil on top of stove until done.

4. Add in feta cheese and mix well. (You can add as much as you like. I LOVE feta cheese!).

5. Distribute spinach mixture onto each chicken breast. I topped spinach with chopped sun dried tomato here. (You may have some leftover).

6. Wrap chicken around mixture (kinda like a taco) and secure with a toothpick.

7. Roll each breast in bread crumbs until well coated.

8. Place in glass baking dish and pour butter over them.

9. Cook for 30 minutes and serve.

NOTE: I usually have spinach mixture left over and just serve it as a side dish. It’s so good that people always want more!

I served mine with creamy, mushroom herbed, polenta. I did make a white wine, lemon, mustard sauce to go with the chicken, I did this more for my son as he likes sauces with everything. The chicken was packed with flavour and very moist the sauced really was not needed.
