Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 2 tbsp Dill, chopped
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 2 Green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp Parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup Spinach, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 oz Cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz Feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish or line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, chopped dill, minced garlic, chopped green onions, lemon zest, chopped parsley, chopped spinach, and crumbled feta cheese. Mix well until everything is evenly incorporated.
  3. Lay the chicken breasts flat on a cutting board and carefully slice a pocket into each chicken breast. Be sure not to cut all the way through.
  4. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, both inside and outside of the pocket.
  5. Stuff each chicken breast pocket with the spinach and feta mixture, pressing gently to ensure it’s tightly packed.
  6. Place the stuffed chicken breasts in the prepared baking dish.
  7. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over the stuffed chicken breasts.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Once cooked, remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
  10. Serve your Spinach and Feta Baked Chicken hot, garnished with additional chopped parsley or a squeeze of lemon juice if desired.

Enjoy your delicious and flavorful Spinach and Feta Baked Chicken!
