stuff it

November 16, 2011

It seems this week I am all about stuffing things. HA!

Get your mind out of the gutter, people! 🙂

We had stuffed bell peppers on Monday and last night I stuffed chicken.

Feta Stuffed Chicken Breasts

1/3 cup crumbled feta (I used a sun-dried tomato flavor)

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1/2 cup chopped red onion

1 Tbsp. capers

1/4 cup basil leaves, chopped

4 (4 oz.) boneless skinless chicken breasts

Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, stirring, 3-4 minutes until soft.

Remove skillet from heat and transfer onions to a small bowl. Stir in the basil, feta and capers.

Cut a horizontal slit in chicken to form a pocket. Stuff 1/4 of the cheese mixture into each chicken breast.

Return skillet to medium-high heat and add a tad more olive oil.

Add chicken and saute for 6 minutes. Carefully flip chicken over and cook for another 6 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Serves 4

Served with roasted red potatoes and broccoli. Winner winner chicken [Tuesday] dinner.

So it’s Wednesday and we know I love Wednesdays (she says with a roll of her eyes) but hopefully it’s a good one.

What’s your favorite “stuffed” food?

    Stuffed olives, hands down! It’s a family recipe that has been passed down for generations.

    Mmmm stuffed mushrooms for the win! Though now I’m craving feta or chicken cordon bleu!

    I think I have to go with stuffed bread, as in like stromboli or any other cheesy, carby Italian delightfulness.

      You can never go wrong with carbs and cheese!

    I just had stuffed chicken at a wedding on Saturday! It’s one of my favorite dishes…I especially like chicken cordon bleu.

    I love stuffed chicken. Especially when the stuffing involves cheese. I think my favorite are stuffed tomatoes though. With pine nuts, basil, spinach and feta. So freaking good.
