Stuffed Chicken Breasts

If you are looking for a quick and easy way to turn plain chicken breasts into a real meal, try these stuffed chicken breasts. The stuffing is made with spinach and feta cheese. It couldn't be easier and tastes just great.
Stuffed Chicken with Spinach & Feta
4 chicken breast
1 pkg frozen spinach
1 cup 'herbal' feta cheese
1/4 cup marinade
(we use WhistleStop of course!)

Place breasts in a large zip-loc bag with marinade. Refrigerate while marinating.
Thaw and drain spinach. Combine with feta cheese, mixing well.
Place breasts in a baking dish. Slice through the thickest part of the breast to make opening for stuffing. Stuff each breast with equal part spinach mix. Pour remaining marinade over chicken. Sprinkle generously with fresh pepper .
Cover with foil, bake at 350° for 40-50 minutes, until the chicken is done. Remove foil the last 10 minutes to help the chicken to brown.
Serve with hot rice and a salad for a great meal.
Y'all enjoy!

Hi Sandi,

Tks for the visit to my blog!

This is a wonderful way to prepare chicken breasts - all that delicious filling brings new flavors, smells and colors to a sort of simple kind of meat.

Great dish!

Being a Stl girl, what is whistlestop marinade? what does it relate to?

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

WhistleStop marinade is our own creation... I don't know of anything like it (but then I am biased) It is a light, soy based sauce that is not to salty and has no MSG.
You can always buy a bottle~ or a case!
