Serves 4 (serving size: 1 stuffed chicken breast half)
Explore many Middle Eastern possibilities in this easy chicken dinner. We're combining feta, a salty, tangy cheese, with baby spinach for a bonus serving of greens built in the stuffed chicken breast. Try using mozzarella or provolone cheese for a more mild, kid-friendly dish. One chicken breast comes in at just over 300 calories. That leaves room for a side of whole-grain quinoa or farro. If you have leftover spinach, use it for a simple side salad. If you don't want to bother stuffing the chicken cutlets, turn these ingredients into a simple salad with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped yellow onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
5 ounces baby spinach
2 ounces crumbled feta cheese (about 1/2 cup)
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
How to Make It
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to pan. Add onion; cook 8 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove pan from heat; stir in dill, spinach, and feta cheese. Cool 10 minutes. Cut a horizontal slit through the center of each chicken breast to form a pocket. Stuff each pocket evenly with spinach mixture. Close pockets with toothpicks. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil to pan. Add chicken; cook 4 minutes. Turn chicken. Cover pan, reduce heat to medium, and cook 5 minutes or until chicken is done.
