Ingredients

  • 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes not packed in oil
  • 1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dill fresh, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • pepper fresh ground, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Using a sharp paring knife, cut a slit in the sides of the chicken breasts, forming a pocket. Be careful not to cut all the way through.
  • Combine the feta, tomatoes, olives, dill, parsley, scallions and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl. Stir until mixed well. Carefully stuff the chicken breasts with the feta mixture and seal the sides shut with water if necessary. Don’t overfill.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the remaining olive oil and sear each chicken breast until browned. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
  • Allow the chicken to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.

  1. I have made a ton of your recipes! No complaints about any of them and this looks great! Do you think I could this be put on the grill? For how long? Would it still need seared? Thanks!

    1. Alicia, It should work fine on the grill. I would recommend placing on foil initially. Once the chicken is just about done, place directly on the grill for browning. Just make sure all juices run clear when pierced with a fork. Also, you may want to have a meat thermometer on hand and make sure the chicken reaches 165 degrees before removing. Also, the cheese will likely melt and ooze out. Therefore, I would add the cheese to the top just before removing the chicken. Hope this helps! 🙂
