How to Make Baked Chicken With Spinach and Feta

by Linda O.

My husband and son were delighted with this dish and thought I should Snapguide it, so I did. 😄

Supplies

  • 8 Fresh, or thawed Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Package of Feta
  • 1 Package of Spinach
  • 1 Johnny's seasoning container
  • Some salt
  • Some pepper
  • Some garlic powder
  • Some dried onion
  • 1 Stick of butter
  • 2 Boxes of Near East Rice Pilaf
  • 3 ½ Cups Vegetable stock, for the rice
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Ingredients :)

    Step 2

    First take your chicken breasts and slice them in half, or butterfly them, lengthwise.

    Step 3

    Like so.

    Step 4

    Here they are cut. Do all the breasts this way ;)

    Step 5

    Here are all the chicken breasts halved.

    Step 6

    Then take the halved breast piece and lay it between some plastic wrap so you can make the piece thinner.

    Step 7

    Like so.

    Step 8

    Here's a video of how we made it thinner.

    Step 9

    You will need a glass dish to lay your chicken pieces in. Now use some of your butter to coat it. You could use spray, but butter tastes better ;)

    Step 10

    Lay your chicken piece into the dish.

    Step 11

    Sprinkle the Johnny's seasoning liberally all over the chicken piece. Then, flip and get the other side as well.

    Step 12

    Only do as many as will lay flat into the glass dish. Then, set aside so you can sauté the spinach for the filling.

    Step 13

    Take a half of your butter....

    Step 14

    and put it into a frypan. Turn your heat to medium and get the butter melted.

    Step 15

    Now it's time to add your spinach. Add at least two cups, but more if you like :)

    Step 16

    There's the beautiful spinach!

    Step 17

    It's starting to wilt as it heats, so stir it around a bit.

    Step 18

    Then add your pepper...

    Step 19

    and salt, and any other spices of your choosing. I put some dried onion in ;)

    Step 20

    It's now time to put your sautéed spinach on to your chicken halves.

    Step 21

    Then sprinkle the feta all over the chicken.

    Step 22

    Now you roll the chicken up from one end to the other....

    Step 23

    Like so.

    Step 24

    And again...

    Step 25

    Like so...

    Step 26

    There's three done ;)

    Step 27

    Now you have the space to lay out more chicken halves, season them on both sides, and add some spinach and feta again until all are done.

    Step 28

    Preheat your oven to 375F.

    Step 29

    When your oven is ready, put your chicken into that oven for 35 minutes to bake.

    Step 30

    This is what they look like when they're done!

    Step 31

    Another pic of this tasty chicken :)

    Step 32

    Here's one cut open so you can see the tasty goodness inside 😋

    Step 33

    If you want to make an easy side dish, this rice is just the thing!

    Step 34

    Put 3 1/2 cups of Vegetable stock and the other half of your stick of butter, or some olive oil into a pot. Set the burner on high to bring to a boil.

    Step 35

    When it's to a boil, add in both boxes of rice pilaf and the seasoning packets and stir.

    Step 36

    Seasoning packets.

    Step 37

    Stirring...

    Step 38

    Time to put the lid on.

    Step 39

    Lid is on. Now turn your heat down to between 2-3 on your stove.

    Step 40

    This is about right. Not too low or it won't steam out some of the moisture inside and properly cook the rice.

    Step 41

    Here it is all done. I did add garlic to my rice for flavor before I put the lid on. Your choice.

    Step 42

    Give the rice a stir ad you'll be ready to add it to the plate with the chicken. :)

    Step 43

    Here they are. Don't they make a beautiful match for this plate? I think so. Enjoy ;)
