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

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a 9 X 13 inch baking pan with foil for easier clean-up.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk lemon juice, basil, oregano, salt, garlic powder, pepper & 2 teaspoons olive oil. Set aside.
  3. In a nonstick skillet saute onion, garlic & red pepper in remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil till onion is tender. Add spinach; cook & stir for 2 minutes. Remove from heat & stir in cheeses.
  4. Dry chicken; cut deep pockets in each, slicing horizontally almost to the bone.
  5. Fill each pocket with 1/4 cup spinach mixture, pinch edges of chicken closed to minimize ooze.
  6. Place chicken in baking pan. Brush reserved oil/juice/herb mixture over each piece.
  7. Cover and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover & bake 10-15 minutes more until chicken is done ( 170ºF on meat thermometer).
