  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Place chicken breasts between 2 pieces of waxed paper. Gently pound chicken with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick; remove wax paper. Place 1 ounce of feta cheese in the center of each chicken breast, and fold in half.
  3. Spread 2 tablespoons bread crumbs in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Arrange chicken in the dish, and top with remaining bread crumbs.
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

As described, this recipe is easy to prepare, quick, reasonably lo-cal, and tasty. That said, it's easy to improve on. Here's what I like to do -- Filling:It's better with good feta, fresh chop...

A nice dish to serve guests. I drizzled melted butter over the chicken before I put it in the oven, as someone suggested. This is a versatile recipe. You could stuff the chicken with sauteed ...

This was just awesome! I don't cook chicken in the oven very often, because I always seem to overcook it. But, already having a side dish, I needed something to go with it. I used boneless, skin...
