Recipe by Wrecks143

This is a few different recipes thrown together. I had a bunch of feta cheese that needed to be used and we really wanted a chicken dinner. This is what we up with.

Spread the feta mixture on top of the chicken instead of stuffing it since I was using the smaller tenderloin chicken strips, and cut the baking time to 30 min. Also added extra tomatoes. This would be good served with rice to spoon the extra liquid over.

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350.
  2. In a bowl, combine feta, tomato, onion, garlic, jalapeno, oregano, basil salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Using a sharp knife, cut into the fatest part of each breast and create a pocket. Be careful not to cut straight through.
  4. Put the pesto in a large ziplock bag and place the chicken in with it. Mix it around until the chicken is thoroughly coated.
  5. Place the coated chicken in a greased glass pan.
  6. Stuff the feta mix into the pockets of each chicken breast.
  7. Arrange the chicken so the openings of the pockets are on an angle (facing upward) so once they start baking the mix doesn't ooze out.
  8. Cook for 45 minutes.
