Feta, Spinach and Caramelized Onion Stuffed Chicken Breasts

I wanted something fun to cook, good to eat, and healthy for my family so I made these feta, spinach, and caramelized onion stuffed chicken breasts. This meal turned out exceptional! We all (kids included) loved this tender and flavorful chicken and it paired nicely with a roasted garlic couscous and zucchini and grape tomato sauté.

Feta, Spinach, and Caramelized Onion Stuffed Chicken Breasts:

Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 small sweet yellow onion(s), chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 5 oz fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tsp lemon zest, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of any fat

How to Make Feta, Spinach, and Caramelized Onion Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Heat 1 tsp of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; sauté onion until caramelized, approximately 15-20 minutes. Add garlic and stir for 45 seconds then add spinach. Cover pan with a lid and steam for about 2 minutes or until spinach is wilted; add balsamic vinegar and stir.

Remove from heat and cool for 5 minutes. Add feta cheese, lemon zest, salt, and pepper to taste and mix thoroughly. Set aside.

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to 1/4-inch thickness, using a meat mallet. Season each chicken breast with salt and pepper to taste.

Divide spinach mixture onto each piece of chicken. Roll up and secure with toothpicks.
