Ingredients for Quick n Easy Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken 

  • 4 8- ounce skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup baby spinach chopped
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped roasted red peppers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped basil
  • 2 tablespoons kalamata olives
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided

Instructions for Quick n Easy Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken 

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° Fahrenheit.
  2. Dry the chicken with a paper towel. Make a horizontal slit in the thickest section of the chicken breast to form a pocket, taking care not to cut all the way through.
  3. Season the chicken breast with oregano, paprika, salt, and pepper, then rub the seasoning into both sides.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the spinach, feta cheese, roasted red peppers, basil, olives, garlic, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Stuff the mixture equally into the chicken breasts. To shut each pocket, use a pair of toothpicks.
  5. Heat the remaining olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet or cast iron skillet. Add the stuffed chicken and sear until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.
  6. Place the skillet, uncovered, in the oven for 15-18 minutes, or until thoroughly cooked.
