Spinach-Feta Chicken Rolls Recipe

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.
