Lazy Greek Chicken

I try to save as many chicken recipes as I can because it's cheap, and much healthier than red meat. Greek Chicken sounded delicious - and if a recipe includes the word lazy, I'm definitely in!

This recipe was nice and simple, and the ingredient list wasn't too overwhelming. It made me realize I need to bust out the two Rachael Ray cookbooks my former roommate gave me and start trying some more of her stuff. This is definitely going into the "keeper" collection.

My Version:

Lazy Greek Chicken
4 generous servings, 40 minutes

2 T. olive oil
1/2 onion (diced)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
10 oz. package chopped frozen spinach (thawed)
Salt, pepper, nutmeg
3 T. butter
1 c. panko bread crumbs
1 t. oregano
4 chicken breasts
1/2 c. crumbled feta cheese

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a small pan, saute 1 T. olive oil, onion, and 2 cloves garlic. Cook for 3-4 minutes, then place in a bowl to cool. Add spinach and dash of salt, pepper, and nutmeg to bowl.

2. Melt butter in pan, then remove from heat. Mix bread crumbs in with butter, along with remaining clove of garlic and oregano.

3. Brush a baking sheet with remaining 1 T. olive oil. Cut a slit in side of chicken breasts, lengthwise, to form a deep pocket. Stuff pockets with spinach mixture and feta cheese. Some of the stuffing will be falling out. Top with bread crumb mixture. Place in baking sheet and cook in oven for 20 minutes, until juices run clear.

4. Dig in!!

It's a Keeper
