    SusieQusie's Note:

    Though the name sounds dubious, I'm not expecting you to stuff a Greek into a chicken breast. This is from my stack of Taste of Home magazines - Light and Tasty, October/November 2005 issue. I've tweaked slightly to lower fat. Posted for Zaar World Tour II

      The flavors are wonderful!! Because I needed a quick version I used the following modifications. Pound boneless breasts thin between two sheets of plastic wrap. put spinich filling on one side and fold the breast over. Pat the outside dry and brush with the herb mixture. I cooked these on the George Foreman grill on medium for about 10-15 minutes. I also used fresh spinich as opposed to the frozen. GREAT!!

I made no substitutions to this recipe only some minor amount adjustments, I stuffed the breasts in the morning and baked for dinner, I am going to give this recipe a try using small turkey breasts, this has gone into my favorites folder, I served this with Nimz grilled brussel sprouts recipe, a dinner fit for a king! thanks so much for sharing hon, we loved this!...Kitten:)

      I LOVED this recipe! I wasn't too sure I would because of the ingredients combo, but it is soooo good. I intend to keep this at the top of my "make again" list. I did use only half the amt of red pepper flakes, it was enough for my tastes. Thank you. Lee
