Chicken is one of the easiest things to stuff.

Chicken Stuffed with Bell Pepper and Feta

  • 2 chicken breasts skinned, deboned, butterflied, and pounded out to 1/4″
  • 1 orange bell pepper seeded and sliced in half
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • Lemon juice
  • Feta cheese
  • Salt/pepper

Roast bell pepper and garlic until skin is charred and garlic in golden brown, about 20 minutes. Puree in a blender with thyme. Season to taste with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Salt and pepper chicken and smear about 1 1/2 tbsp puree over each one. Sprinkle on feta cheese and then roll chicken into a pouch and tie up with cooking twine. Bake on a bed of chopped carrots at 355 degrees until done. Remove cooking twine and serve.

    Great use of feta here, Greg. I never think to use it this way.

    This looks delish and I like the idea that it’s not just a typical stuffing! And – if someone doesn’t like Feta (not me – I love it !), they can always substitute another type of cheese. Great job Rufus !!
