Spicy Greek Stuffed Chicken Breast

Scrumptious chicken breast stuffed with light feta cheese, spiced red peppers and black olives with a light crispy coating.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350° F (175° C). Heat olive oil on stove at medium heat. Add chili seeds to oil and roast for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
  2. Add finely chopped red peppers to oil and cook until soft. Mixture will become red and frothy. Remove all oil and peppers to a heat-safe bowl once cooked.
  3. Slice chicken breast horizontally, stopping 3/4 of the way through.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine feta cheese, minced black olives and half of the olive oil/red pepper mixture. Evenly add to inside of chicken breast.
  5. Wrap the breast into a roll, making sure the cheese mixture is completely covered. Secure ends of chicken breast with toothpicks, ensuring no mixture can escape while cooking.
  6. Brush the outside of the chicken with remaining olive oil mixture, and coat with panko and parmesan cheese.
  7. Place chicken in a deep non-stick baking sheet. Place in oven on middle rack and bake for 30 minutes, then turn chicken. Continue to bake for another 15 minutes, or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
  8. Remove toothpicks before serving.

Be careful when adding the chili seeds to hot olive oil, and have the kitchen ventilated. Perhaps I used the wrong seeds, but the fumes started choking me pretty bad. That said, it was TOTALLY WORTH IT! This was amazing!!

Loved it! Not sure what chili seeds are, but we used crushed red pepper instead.

VERY EASY AND QUITE TASTY!!! Any left over stuffing I placed on top of the chicken and sprinkled more red pepper flakes on top and baked it that way with out turning. My husband Loved it!

Yummy! I didn't try the chili pepper oil part of this recipe but did add some diced red and yellow peppers to the cheese & olive stuffing. I also substituted Kalamata olives for the green olives.

this was a great recipe, the chicken was very moist. I used canned chili peppers instead of dried and it turned out with the perfect amount of spice. My husband LOVED it. New new staple in my house.
