Instructions Checklist
  • Zest lemon. Remove lemon pith with a sharp knife and slice flesh horizontally. Reserve slices.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in an oven-safe, nonstick skillet over medium heat until it shimmers, 2 to 3 minutes. Add onion and cook until translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add lemon zest and garlic and heat until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  • Add spinach to the onion mixture. Cook and stir until heated through, about 3 minutes. Remove spinach-onion mixture to a bowl. Wipe skillet clean and set aside. Stir feta cheese and olives into the spinach mixture. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Cut a 2-inch slit along the edges of the thick side of each chicken breast. Cut lengthwise, being careful not to cut through the bottom or the opposite edge, creating a pocket. Season the pocket with salt and pepper.

  • Stuff each chicken breast with 1/2 of the onion and spinach mixture and close the slits with toothpicks. Dust chicken lightly with flour, salt, and pepper.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering, about 2 minutes. Place chicken in the hot oil with the rib side facing up. Cook until browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Turn chicken rib-side down and place lemon slices on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 35 minutes.

My family loved this! The only change made was that rather than serving the chicken alone with veggies rice or potatoes Icombined the chicken with greek pasta all baked together in the oven. Read More

I would give it 4.5 stars it was really good but not quite 5 stars for me. Definitely a weekend meal took too long for a weekday. I liked the favors together especially with the lemon. Read More
