Spinach-Feta Stuffed Chicken

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.

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
