Instructions

The Baste

  1. In a small bowl mix the oil, seasonings and minced garlic together and set aside.

The Chicken

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.  In a second bowl mix together the crumbled bacon, crumbled feta and Italian seasoning. 

  2. Fillet the chicken breasts and place them in a greased casserole dish.  If you have never filleted a chicken breast before please google it and make sure you use a good sharp knife.

  3. Use about 2/3 of the bacon feta mixture to stuff the 2 pieces of chicken.  Fold them over and press around the edges to seal them.  Top of the chicken breasts with remaining feta and bacon.  Finally pour the baste evenly over the chicken.

  4. Bake the chicken for 35 to 40 minutes or until the juices run clear.  If you have a meat thermometer they should read 165°F.  Enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Enjoy these stuffed chicken breasts with a nice crisp Greekish Salad.

Did you know:  Americans consume 8 billion chickens a year.  Well, as far as I'm concerned, that number can only go up from here.
