A delicious creamy blend of Greek flavors rolled up in chicken. I just threw this together last night and it turned out amazing. I made 3 chicken breasts and still have a huge bowl of filling. I am going to try to make several other dishes with it. Tonight - stuffed burgers. Tomorrow - filling on rye bread topped with shrimp or cucumber as an appetizer. It might also be delicious with lamb, fish, or in a pita wrap with lettuce. Experiment with this filling because it is delicious all on its own. Serve with Greek salad or side dish of choice.

  • Cut each chicken breast from one side through the middle horizontally to within one-half inch of the other side. Open the two sides and spread them out like an open book.

  • Mix cream cheese, feta cheese, tomato, olives, onion, and spinach together in a large bowl. Spoon cheese mixture onto 1 side of each opened chicken breast. Fold each chicken breast closed and place on a piece of aluminum foil.

  • Cook the chicken breasts on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 15 to 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

The spinach and onion are best chopped in a food processor.

I add a minimum of 3 cloves of garlic smashed and at least 1/2 cup of onion Greek Oregano and small amount of Basil. I also use Kalamata Greek olives. I brush the chicken in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Served with a lovely Greek Artichoke and Avocado salad it is a real treat. Read More

This didn't turn out too good for me. I think it was my own fault. First of all I used frozen seasoned chicken breast and tried to flatten them out and fold them over the stuffing. That did not work too well. Second I baked them instead of grilling them. They turned out very mushy. I may try it again but I have to get the chicken crispier. I do not like to grill chicken as it usually dries out for me. Read More

I added fresh chives instead of onion fresh basil oregano and a little garlic. I also added a little fresh squeezed lemon juice to the cream cheese. I mixed the spices and chives with the cream cheese and spread this mixture on the chicken. Then I sprinkled the feta olives and tomato on top. I drizzled a little olive oil on top before baking. I didn't have any spinach so left that out but will add next time I make it. I baked it in the oven for about 40 minutes. I'd like to try breading it next time. Overall a nice change from what I usually make. I served it with wild rice and steamed asparagus. Read More

Tried this recipe last night and it is excellent. I didn't have black pitted olives so used my olive tapenade. Too cold to fire up the bbq so used my indoor grill. We served it with a mango/avocado/black bean salad and it was WOW. My meat and potatoes husband loved it too. Thanks Read More

It was the best stuffed breast we've ever had. I prepared as shown except I added Chive & Onion cream cheese and fresh chopped chives. The breasts were over stuffed So I wrapped them in foil and grilled them 25 minutes. Wrapping them made all those flavored absorb in the chicken and didn't lose any stuffing to the fire. Read More
