This is a great main course for dinner guests...and they never believe how easy it is. The creamy feta-basil filling can be made early and refrigerated until needed. Deli ham and packaged spinach leaves further cut prep time.

Ingredients

  • 5 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)

"I made this chicken last night and it was delicious! I didn't have feta cheese on hand, so I used shredded mozzarella instead. My husband asked how I got the chicken so tender. I love the layer of spinach. I will make this again!"

"My picky husband and 10-yr-old son both really loved this. Neither even noticed the spinach, and my little boy had two portions! The bread crumbs on the outside we're a bit dry and crumbly, but that may have been the type I used. Assembly was easy but a bit time consuming. Definitely something I will make again."
