Easy Recipe: Feta, Tomato & Basil Stuffed Chicken

stuffedchicken Made this one really impromptu the other night when I realized I didn’t have the ingredients for the Baked Stuffed Chicken I was trying to make.  I took a look at what was in the fridge and made do and everyone loved it!

Feta, Tomato & Basil Stuffed Chicken

Ingredients:

IMG_6971 -Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
-Feta Cheese (one tub)
-Fresh Basil
-3-4 Chicken Breasts

Preheat the oven to 375.

Mix the stuffing in a bowl. I used sweet tomatoes, which is why they are yellow in the picture.  We had them on hand but cherry or grape tomatoes would work great too!  I use kitchen scissors and cut each tomato in half.

I probably cut about 15 tomatoes.  I also use kitchen scissors to cut up about 20 pieces of fresh basil.  I stack them and cut them length-wise so make little shredded pieces – easy peasy!

Lastly, I dumped in a tub of crumbled feta cheese.

I was out of toothpicks so I just did the best I could with pounding the chicken breasts flat and then creating a mock “center” where I scooped the stuffing and then rolled the chicken breast around as best I could.  But honestly it worked great… they wrapped and I put them face down in the baking dish. I basted them in a bit of lemon olive oil that I have – you could use fresh evoo and squeeze some lemon juice on for the same effect.

Any extra stuffing I had, I spooned on top of the chicken before cooking.

I then cooked everything at 375 for about 35 minutes. The chicken is pictured with some lemon spinach orzo – the entire plate was relish!  And bonus – it took me 20 minutes TOPS to put the whole thing together.  I’m all about the quick prep dinner that the fam loves!
