Feta Stuffed Chicken Breasts | www.tasteandtellblog.com

How many of you use a reader to keep up on your favorite blogs? If you do, have you ever noticed how sometimes, a blog’s updates will just stop showing up, for no reason at all?? I’m just wondering if anyone knows why this happens. I’ve had a few blogs that I’ve had to go back into and re-subscribe, just to get them to work again. And I had a comment on my blog a little while back when a reader said that my posts weren’t showing up on her reader. I haven’t changed anything. Weird…

Well, even though sometimes technology doesn’t work, this meal does. It’s a great way to fancy up some boring chicken breasts. But then again, stuff anything with cheese and I’m usually a happy girl! And you’ll notice the Peppery Cheese Bread that I posted about the other day making another showing here. Delicious!

Feta-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Feta-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

These aren't your ordinary chicken breasts! Chicken gets stuffed with feta, sun-dried tomatoes and basil in this easy dinner idea.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon snipped dried tomatoes (not oil-packed)
  • boiling water
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Place tomatoes in a small bowl. Cover with boiling water. Let stand for 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry; set aside. Meanwhile, using a sharp knife, cut a pocket in each chicken breast by cutting horizontally through the thickest portion to, but not through, the opposite side; set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine feta, cream cheese, basil, and tomatoes. Spoon about 1 rounded tablespoon into each chicken pocket. If necessary, secure openings with wooden toothpicks. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
  4. In a large oven-proof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken, cook until browned, flip over, and cook on second side until browned. Move skillet to the preheated oven and bake until chicken is no longer pink and registers 170F on an instant read thermometer, about 25 minutes.

    Deborah, I just found your blog and love it!!! I've found the same thing with my reader! I don't have a clue what causes that, but if you ever find out, let us know? Vicki

  3. Chef E says:

    This looks great, and I do not stuff chicken enough! I have been catching up on your posts, and what great food recipes and photos you have here! I love your blog…

  4. Abby says:

    I don't really use my reader. It's kind of like books instead of a kindle – I like to visit the blog (or read the actual book) for the full effect! Takes longer, but it's worth it.

  5. Ben says:

    The problem with the reader has happened to me before, too. I have no clue why that happens, but it's really annoying. :(

    In the bright side, that chicken looks so good!

    Looks incredible I make one that is similar and use Goat Cheese!!

  7. Emily says:

    MMM chicken and feta.

    I'm not sure about the reader thing. I have a lot of blogs bookmarked (yours!), and then I also go under my comments and read blogs from there.

  8. Ingrid says:

    Yes! The kids and I love feta and I have some sun-dried tomatoes that need a home.

    I love feta and it never occurred to me to stuff it in chicken breasts… YUM!

  10. girlichef says:

    Oh my gosh, I can almost taste this…it looks amazing!

  11. Kevin says:

    Sundried tomato and feta stuffing would be so tasty and good!

  12. Anna says:

    I just made these :) They were SO easy and super tasty. The perfect Monday meal. I paired them with some brussle sprouts to make it a relatively healthy meal as well.

    Thanks!

    great recipe and pictures! I just wanted to let you know that I used one of your pictures on my most recent blog (giving you the credit and adhering to your copyright terms). thanks for sharing such an awesome recipe! here's the link – http://reluctantwwfoodie.wordpress.com/2011/01/05/stuff-it-poultry/

  14. Let me start by saying YUM! This is a great recipe that my entire family enjoyed, which is no small task considering my husband is pickier than my children – I kid you not! However, he loved these! So in my quest to find recipes that he will eat, I am happy to add this one to the top of the list! :)
