Lazy Baked Greek Chicken

1 02 2011

Like every person who cooks you begin to like certain foods and certain recipes by certain people.  Over the years I have fell in love with Rachael Ray.  Mostly because her recipes are easy and fast.  I have quite a few recipes that are from her that my family and I love very much.  I saw her making this Lazy Baked Greek Chicken on her show the other day and my husband said that it looked good and we should give it a try.  It was a great dish and the best part was the panko on top.  A great addition.

 

Lazy Baked Greek Chicken

~ 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

~ 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped

~ 3 large cloves garlic, finely chopped,

~ 1 box chopped spinach (10 oz.), thawed

~ Salt & Pepper

~ nutmeg to taste

~ 3 Tbsp. butter

~ 2 cup panko breadcrumbs

~ 1 tsp. dried oregano

~ 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

~ 1/2 cup crumbled Greek feta cheese

 

Stuffed Chicken

Pre-heat the oven to 425o F

Heat 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and the garlic and cook until softened, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool, then add the spinach making sure it is drained really good and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Melt the butter in the same pan, turn off the heat and add the panko and oregano and toss.

Ready to go in the oven

Drizzle a baking dish with 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil. Pound each chicken breast until it has almost doubled in size. Place the spinach and feta on half of the chicken breast, letting the stuffing overflow at the edges. Fold chicken breast over and top with the breadcrumbs. Bake until the juices run clear; about 20 minutes.
