Directions

This is a great base recipe. I put the feta and cream cheese in a food processor and added fresh spinach, roasted red peppers, garlic, and basil to make a filling with which to stuff the chicken. To the pan, I added about 3 T of extra virgin olive oil and 3 T of lemon juice. I wilted some fresh spinach, added some feta and mixed it with a lemon rice and it was great. My dinner party guests raved over it and couldn't get enough of the "lemon sauce" for the chicken. If you are experienced with roux, you could thicken the lemon-chicken stock after cooking and that would be great, too.

I made this for a dinner party. I used toothpicks instead of kitchen string. I also dipped the chicken in melted butter and then rolled in a 2:1 ratio of seasoned bread crumbs and parm cheese. Came out delicious!

We loved this recipe! I placed chicken between pieces of waxed paper and pounded it thin then added the cheese mixture (as listed in recipe). The only change I made was, after brushing the rolled chicken with melted butter, to sprinkle each piece with a mixture of bread crumbs and parmesian cheese. The little bit of cheese that oozed out during cooking time was excellent spooned on top of the chicken. I served this alongside gnocchi with browned sage butter sauce. Too good!
