Spinach and feta cheese stuffed into boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Great served with rice, noodles of a great summer salad. Sure to become a family favourite.
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    4 Skinless, boneless Chicken Breasts
    1/2 Cup Mayonaise (Low Fat optional)
    1/2 Cup crumbled Feta cheese (Low Fat optional)
    2 Cloves Garlic (chopped)
    1 (10-ounce) package of frozen chopped Spinach, thawed and drained
    4 Slices Bacon
    2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive oil
    2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
    Salt, Pepper & Oregano to tast

Directions

This recipe makes 4 servings, but is easily reduced for less. You can do a lot of wonderful, low fat substitutions, as well as trading in fresh spinach for frozen (just cook and drain is first).

1.) In a bowl, mix together the mayonaise, spinach, feta cheese and garlic until an even consistency is met. Put aside.

2.) Carefully butterfly chicken breasts (don't cut right through). Spoon Spinach mixture into the incision.

3.) Wrap each breast up with a piece of bacon (Prociutto is a great alternative), and secure with a toothpick. Place in a shallow baking dish.

4.) Mix together Olive oil, Lemon juice and seasoning. Brush over breasts (the chicken's, not your own).

5.) Bake at 375 degrees F (190 C) in oven for 1 hour, or until chicken is no longer pink.

6.) Enjoy with rice, noodles or a great salad.

    I made this for my family and everyone loved it! It reminded me of something that would be served at a nice catered event without too much fuss. The calorie calculation was incorrect however. I cut the mayo in half and only used 1/2 T of olive oil to keep it under 300 calories per serving. GREAT - 4/29/09

    I served this dish to my sons, husband, and father-in-law -- all ofthem loved it! I served it on a bed of zucchini noodles which worked great. (Just use a peeler to peel flat noodles off three zucchinis and cook in olive oil.) I highly recommned this recipe! (Was also fun to make!) - 1/12/10

    It was sooo delicioius with a side of brown rice. I didn't even use the bacon, because I didn't have any. I did add a layer of sliced onions to the top and sliced up roma tomatoes on top of the onions before pouring the olive oil mixture. Will make again for sure!! - 10/11/09

  • Just finished dinner...FANTASTIC! I made substitutions. First substitution...1/2 cup Campbell's Cream of Mushroom instead of Mayo, I filleted the breasts(used halves), it made them easy to roll. I also used turkey bacon. I seasoned my filling=1/8 tsp salt, 1/2tsp pepper, Italian seasoning...PERFECT - 1/26/14
