Bacon-Feta Stuffed Chicken Recipe

Chicken breasts are incredibly versatile, and I think feta cheese is so underrated. You can buy feta in so many different flavors...basil and tomato is our favorite.—Vicki Smith, Okeechobee, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (4 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled cooked bacon
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil


  • 1. Carefully cut a slit in the deepest part of each chicken breast. Fill with bacon and cheese; secure with toothpicks. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, brown chicken in oil.
  • 2. Drain one can of tomatoes; add to skillet. Stir in the remaining tomatoes; sprinkle with basil. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer inserted in the chicken breast reads 170° and the tomato mixture is thickened. Discard toothpicks. Yield: 4 servings.

"Just saw the local Providence news use this recipe! Missed it on tv, so I searched for it & who would thunk it's a fellow Okeechobee, Floridian who posted it?

Lived there for over 30 years! Wow...
This is a fantastic recipe & it shold be re-posted & brought to the light of day again!

"I used salsa instead of diced tomatoes and sprinkled a tablespoon of feta cheese into the salsa while cooking. Hubby said it was awesome!"
