Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken

Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken

Posted 2017-04-21 by finyfollow

Feta always seem to add taste to recipes, and this is probably due to the salt content.

When using feta I would never add salt to a dish as they just do not need it.

I have used frozen spinach for this recipe as I find the frozen spinach has more taste than my home grown spinach, which the worms had got to anyway!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients
1 large chicken breast (cut in half lengthways)
1 tsp garlic, crushed
1 packet frozen spinach
½ cup feta cheese
½ cup breadcrumbs
2 tbsp butter

Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180°/160° fan forced.

  • Pound the chicken breasts until they are very thin and are therefore larger than before you started.

  • Squeeze all the water out of the spinach and cook it with the garlic, in a small frypan, for a few minutes.

  • Turn off the heat and add the crumbled feta and mix well.

  • Spread the mixture onto each chicken breast, noting that there will be some left over. Do not overfill near the edges.


  • Wrap the chicken around this mixture and secure it with toothpicks.


  • Roll each breast in the breadcrumbs until they are well coated.

  • Put them in a glass baking dish, and pour the butter over them.

  • Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes and serve.
  • I cut them into slices before putting on the plates but this is optional


  • I served them with my potato salad, however an ordinary green salad would go well, or even plain vegetables.
  • I also served the left over spinach mixture as a vegetable


  • You could also cut these into thin, bite sized pieces and use them as party food, either hot or at room temperature.
