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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min.
MAKES:5 servings

MAKES: 5 servings


  • 5 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil or 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 5 thin slices deli ham
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 3/4 to 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs


  1. Flatten chicken breasts to 1/4-in. thickness. Place a single layer of spinach over chicken.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, feta cheese, basil and pepper until blended; spread over spinach. Top each chicken breast with a ham slice, trimming if necessary. Roll up and secure with toothpicks.

"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."
