Five Star Feta-Stuffed Chicken
Low Fat Recipe
Feta-stuffed chicken breasts are breaded and baked to a golden brown, then served over a bed of fresh spinach and basil.
4 (4 ounce) skinned, boned chicken breasts halves
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese with basil and tomato
Vegetable cooking spray
1-1/2 teaspoons melted butter
3 cups torn spinach
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to 1/4-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Dredge chicken in breadcrumbs. Spoon 1 tablespoon cheese onto each piece of chicken; fold chicken in half.
Place folded breast halves in an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Drizzle melted margarine over chicken. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until chicken is done.
Combine spinach and basil in a bowl; drizzle with vinegar and oil. Sprinkle pepper over salad; toss well. Serve chicken over salad.
