4 chicken breasts


  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • 4 slices bacon


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Mix together spinach, mayonnaise, feta cheese, and garlic in a large bowl until well blended. Set aside.

  3. Carefully butterfly chicken breasts, making sure not to cut all the way through. Spread spinach mixture onto chicken breasts, then fold to enclose filling. Wrap each with a piece of bacon; secure with a toothpick. Place in a shallow baking dish.

  4. Bake, covered, in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 30 to 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of each breast should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
