Feta & Spinach Stuffed, Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breasts.

This is another one of my most requested recipes...

This dish is easy enough for every night family meals,
yet impressive enough to serve your guests at any dinner party.

It is simple to throw together and it freezes beautifully!
I always make a ton of these suckers to keep in the freezer for those nights that I just don't feel like cooking.

You can make it with cream cheese or feta.

Dana's Spinach & Feta Stuffed, Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breasts.

It's not so much a recipe as it is a technique.

You Will Need...

Boneless/skinless chicken breasts. (as many as you would like to make)
bacon ( prosciutto is really good too!) enough to wrap each breast with one slice.
Feta Cheese (You'll need approx 2 Tablespoons per breast)
Frozen spinach (I mix the spinach and cheese about half-n-half, so eyeball it.)
Salt & Pepper to taste.


*Pound each of your chicken breasts to approx 1/2 inch thick. (or butterfly them open)
*Season each breast with salt/pepper.
*Spread approx 2 tablespoons of the FETA cheese & Spinach onto the widest portion of each breast.
*Roll the breast up around the filling, starting at the widest end of the breast.
*Wrap each chicken roll with one slice of bacon.
*Secure bacon ends with tooth-picks.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for approx 35-40 minutes or until juices run clear.
