Recipes with feta cheese are popping up all over social media. From baked feta with tomatoes to feta and lemon potatoes to feta spread, there's a recipe for everyone. This easy feta stuffed chicken breasts recipe is simple to make and definitely satisfies those Mediterranean cravings.
Chicken breasts are stuffed with feta and fresh chopped parsley before being bathed in a mixture of olive oil, lemon, garlic and Greek seasoning. The chicken breasts are baked in the oven for about 30 minutes or until cooked through. The flavor is on the outside and on the inside. The creamy feta oozes over the chicken as you cut and tastes amazing. If you want grill marks on your chicken, cook the chicken in an ovenproof grill pan.
