Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast

I’m off playing again….

As luck would have it Ben, of The Online Grill, offered to do a guest post.

Even better it’s a recipe I want to try – so here it is:

From Ben:

I’m somewhat of a feta-holic. From loading it in to my Greek salads, or mixing it in with poached eggs and avocado for the perfect brunch, I always try to find a way to work it into a meal.

Granted, it might not be the healthiest addition to certain meals, but I just can’t resist its rich, salty taste.

Which brings me to this spinach and feta stuffed chicken breast recipe.

If there’s one thing I love more than feta, it’s melted feta – and this beautiful recipe has it in abundance. It mixes in healthy greens in the form of spinach, lean protein with chicken, and it is brilliant if you’re after something low-carb or even gluten-free.

What’s more is that it’s easy to put together. You’ll know when this is done right if the breading comes out crunchy, while the chicken remains moist.

Given the simplicity of this recipe it’s one that’s actually really easy to tweak should you want to be a little more adventurous. If you want a bit more substance to the filling, adding ¼ cup of ricotta can help plump it up a bit. Alternatively, if you like a bit of a kick to your food, try adding half a chilli with some chopped onion, parsley and lemon zest. The slight spicy flavor will match beautifully with the feta.

Whichever way you prefer it, I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. If you have a different take on it let me know! Enjoy…

  1. Hi Katie,
    Glad your off having fun. Today’s ads on my side of the pond are: HP flash storage, vuse ciro complete kit
    cabbala’s sleeping bags, underwear has evolved, and wait for it, food ads for pasta and risotto and herbal tea. I don’t mind clicking a bit but I tried clicking an ad away once, hit the thing and got Malware. Now, clicking them away is not so fun. Will there be pix of your time away? Always look forward to seeing fun.

    • There will be pics 😉 I think stopping the overlay ad (the one that goes over everything) will solve a lot of issues. Life used to be simpler, Sigh…. Malware – very bad!!!!
