What's Cooking Now

from "The Great American Eat-Right Cookbook" by Colleen Doyle and Jeanne Besser

Imagine cutting into a chicken breast and finding a delectable surprise — spinach and feta cheese filling. Suddenly, a plain chicken breast is something special. Depending on the shape of the chicken breasts, you might not use all the filling. You can also use sautéed spinach as a filling.

Just add rice and a salad and dinner is ready.

Coating chicken with a seasoning blend is simple and delivers a lot of oomph. Greek seasoning — a blend of onion, garlic, spearmint, and oregano — is a great complement to the dish.

1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

1 tablespoon canola oil

Preheat the oven to 350° degrees.

In a bowl, combine spinach, feta, and lemon zest.

Using a paring knife, cut a pocket in the side of the thickest part of the breast, a bit more than halfway through the width and length of the breast. Make sure not to poke through the meat. Stuff the breast with spinach mixture. Use a toothpick or wooden skewer to close the flap.

Lightly coat chicken with Greek seasoning and sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, add oil. Cook chicken for 3 to 5 minutes per side.

Transfer to the oven and bake for 8 to 12 minutes, or until cooked through.
