Bacon and Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast

 

– Trader Joe’s recipe
  • 1 tub Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • 1 package Uncured Bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 6 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, pounded flat
  • Toothpicks or kitchen twine (or whatever you can find in your kitchen drawer)
  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp (each) Dried Oregano, Dried Basil
  • 1 can (28 oz.) Diced Tomatoes & Juice From Can

Combine feta and bacon in a mixing bowl. Place 1/4 cup of the cheese/bacon mixture on the center of each chicken breast. Fold breast over to enclose mixture; fasten with a toothpick or kitchen twine. Heat a large sauté pan and add oil. Heat oil to medium and add stuffed breasts; turn breasts while cooking to brown on all sides. Add tomatoes and seasoning to pan. Lower heat to a simmer; cook about 15 – 20 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°. Place chicken on a serving platter (remove toothpicks or twine) and spoon tomato sauce over.
