Stuffed Chicken with Spinach and Feta
This easy Stuffed Chicken with Spinach and Feta is going to be the next weeknight meal on the menu. So delicious! The combination of cream cheese, onion, spinach, and feta adds a whole lot of flavour to the tender chicken breast.
How Do I Prepare It?
You are going to start by preparing all your ingredients. Chop up the spinach, crumble the feta, and cut a slit on the side of the chicken to create the pocket that you will need to stuff the ingredients into.
Season the chicken breasts on both sides and then place onto a board. Using your hands, add slices of cream cheese first. Now if you are like me and you love your food creamy then add a lot of cream cheese. It actually helps keep the chicken breast tender while cooking.
Next add the spinach, crumbled feta, and finally lots of sliced onions. Fold over one side of the breast onto the other and secure with 1-2 toothpicks.
Add EVOO and the chicken to a frying pan and cook each side over medium to high heat until it is golden brown. It seals in the flavour and makes a huge difference to the end taste.
This recipe becomes a one-pan bake if your frying pan is oven safe so it is preferred if you used one, otherwise after frying add the chicken to a baking tray lined with baking pape
