  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Toothpicks or kitchen twine, for securing


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease a baking dish large enough to fit the chicken breasts in a single layer.
  2. Prepare the Chicken: Using a sharp knife, carefully butterfly each chicken breast by slicing horizontally through the thickest part, but not all the way through, to create a pocket. Be careful not to cut all the way to the edges.
  3. Make the Filling: In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant. Add the chopped spinach to the skillet and cook until wilted, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Once cooled, stir in the crumbled feta cheese, dried oregano, dried thyme, and season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  4. Stuff the Chicken: Divide the spinach and feta mixture evenly among the chicken breasts, spooning it into the pocket of each breast. Secure the openings with toothpicks or kitchen twine to prevent the filling from spilling out during baking.
  5. Bake the Chicken: Place the stuffed chicken breasts in the prepared baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear. If desired, you can broil the chicken for an additional 2-3 minutes at the end to brown the tops.
  6. Serve: Once cooked, remove the toothpicks or kitchen twine from the chicken breasts. Serve the Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken hot, garnished with fresh herbs if desired.
