Spinach-Feta Stuffed Chicken Recipe

Once the stuffed chicken breasts are browned in a skillet, cooking them in microwave gets them done quickly. Be sure to check each piece of chicken--particularly those in the center of the baking dish--to be sure that each of them is cooked through.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 5 ounces crumbled feta cheese, divided
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes with onions, undrained
  • Hot cooked pasta, optional


  • 1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Combine spinach and 1/2 cup feta cheese; spoon down the center of each chicken breast half. Fold chicken over filling and secure with toothpicks. Combine the flour, oregano, salt and pepper; rub over chicken.
  • 2. In a large skillet, brown chicken in oil on all sides. Discard toothpicks. Place chicken in a greased shallow 3-qt. microwave-safe dish. Top with tomatoes and remaining feta cheese.
  • 3. Cover and microwave on high for 18-20 minutes or until chicken juices run clear and cheese is melted. Serve over pasta if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
