Ingredients

  • 4 8- ounce skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup baby spinach chopped
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped roasted red peppers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped basil
  • 2 tablespoons kalamata olives
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Make a horizontal slit in the thickest part of the chicken breast to create a pocket, making sure not to cut all the way through.
  • Season the chicken breast with oregano, paprika, salt and pepper and use your hands to rub the seasoning on both sides of the chicken.
  • In a small bowl, combine the spinach, feta cheese, roasted red peppers, basil, olives, garlic and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Stuff the mixture evenly inside the chicken breast. Use a couple toothpicks to close each pocket.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet or cast iron skillet, add the stuffed chicken and sear until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.
  • Transfer the skillet to the oven uncovered and bake until cooked through, about 15-18 minutes.
