    Family loved this. I sprinkled feta on top of the rolled chicken and then added salt and pepper. Instead of cooking this on the stove, I cooked in the oven at 375 for 20-25 minutes and then put under the broiler for a couple of minutes just to brown the feta. Very tasty and a great way to get them to eat spinach.

    Great combination! The feta cheese worked excellent with the spinach. Now if only I could perfect my 'roll ups' to not spill out. Thanks!
