Servings: This recipe makes approximately 4 servings.
- Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Using a sharp knife, carefully butterfly each chicken breast by making a horizontal cut along the side, without cutting all the way through. This will create a pocket to stuff the filling.
- In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant. Add chopped spinach to the skillet and cook until wilted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
- In a bowl, combine the cooked spinach, crumbled feta cheese, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
- Open each chicken breast and spoon the spinach and feta mixture into the pocket, dividing it equally among the chicken breasts. Secure the openings with toothpicks if needed.
- Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add a little olive oil and place the stuffed chicken breasts in the skillet. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown.
- Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
- Remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. Remember to remove the toothpicks before serving.
- Serve the Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast alongside your favorite keto-friendly side dishes, such as roasted vegetables or cauliflower rice.
