Spinach-Feta Chicken Rolls Recipe

“This dish was inspired from a favorite Greek appetizer,” writes Linda Gregg of Spartanburg, South Carolina. It may take a bit of extra work, but it's worth it!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup Greek olives, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. Place tomatoes in a small bowl; add boiling water. Let stand for 5 minutes. In another bowl, combine the spinach, feta cheese, onions, olives and garlic. Drain and chop tomatoes; add to spinach mixture.
  • 2. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread spinach mixture over chicken. Roll up and secure with toothpicks. Place in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray.

"I used fresh spinach rather than frozen and cut the recipe in half. Very tasty but the outside of the chicken was rather dry after 40 minutes in the oven. The flavor of the filling was very good."
