Spinach, Feta and Sun Dried Tomato Stuffed Chicken Breast

Standard

This is a different twist on my Feta Chicken. I love the combination of spinach, feta, sun-dried tomatoes and garlic. Yum.

Spinach, Feta and Sun Dried Tomato Stuffed Chicken

  • 4 chicken breast, boneless and skinless
  • Olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 9 oz bag fresh spinach
  • 1 cup julienne Sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 T. dried oregano
  • Salt and Pepper to taste ( I used about 1/2 tsp pepper and salt)
  • Feta Cheese
  • Greek Seasoning
  • Italian Style Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 2 T butter, melted

Put around 2 T olive in a heated pan. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add spinach and wilt. Add sun-dried tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper. Saute a few minutes.

Pound chicken breast until they are flat and even. That way they will cook the same and you will have  more room for stuffing 🙂

Rinse under water and shake off excess. Dredge in breadcrumbs. Place in a baking dish spray with cooking spray. Spoon spinach mixture on half of the chicken, spoon on  plenty of feta cheese. Sprinkle with a little Greek seasoning. Fold chicken in half. Try to use a skewer to close the chicken. It is kind of hard and I did not do it so well, but it turned out just fine. Drizzle with melted butter.

Bake in a 400F oven for 25 – 30 minutes or until done.

Saute garlic

Add spinach; saute until wilted.

Add sun-dried tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper.

Pound chicken breast until they are even and flat. I put the chicken in a plastic bag and bang it. That way the chicken doesn't spatter everywhere. ick!

Rinse chicken under water and shake off excess.Dredge in breadcrumbs.

Fold in half and place in a baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. I only bought 3 breast, but there was plenty of spinach stuffing for 4.

Spoon spinach mixture on half of the breast. Top with lots of feta and sprinkle with a bit of Greek seasoning.

Try to close with a skewer or toothpick. Drizzle with butter. I sprinkled a little of the bread crumbs on the top. Pop into the oven.
