Course Main Dish

Ingredients
  

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil divided
  • 6-1/2 cups Baby spinach chopped
  • 1 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 Lemon zest & juice
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
  • 1/2 cup Butter melted
  • 1 garlic clove minced

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and lightly grease a shallow baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the oil.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet. Add the spinach, garlic, and vinegar, and cook until the spinach has wilted. Remove the skillet from the burner and allow the spinach to cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Stir the feta and lemon zest into the spinach mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
  • One at a time, place the chicken breasts on a piece of plastic wrap, folding the wrap over it. Use a kitchen mallet, flatten the breasts to about 1/4 inch.
  • Spread 1/4 of the spinach mixture over each chicken breast, and roll them up, fastening the ends with toothpicks.
  • Add the milk to a bowl.
  • In a second bowl, add the breadcrumbs and Romano cheese.
  • Dip each chicken breast first in the milk, and then in the breadcrumb mixture. Roll them and pat gently to get the breadcrumbs to stick.
  • Place the chicken breasts in the baking dish.
  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Once melted, stir in the lemon juice, and garlic, and pour it evenly over the chicken.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, until cooked thoroughly.
