Baked Mediterranean Chicken

A yummy and easy way to make a typical baked chicken breast more exciting.



  1. Cut chicken breasts in half through the centre, and pound flat to make 6 cutlets.
  2. In a bowl, add cream cheese, parmesan cheese and chopped roasted red pepper.
  3. Heat butter in a pan, and sauté spinach until wilted. Remove from pan and chop.
  4. Add to bowl and mix with a spoon. Season with salt, pepper, or other preferred herbs and spices.
  5. Spread a large spoonful of the mixture over each chicken cutlet.
  6. Roll the cutlets and place on a lightly greased pan or parchment paper, seam-side down. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Bake at 400° F (200° C) for 45-60 minutes (depending on your oven). Remove, let cool and enjoy!
  8. Note: would also be great topped with a little tzatziki or other dressing.

Even my hubby loved it! He hates spinach. My kids also liked it.

Tried this tonight, it was great! I seasoned with garlic and onion powder, and the we added a topping of banana peppers and portabella mushrooms. Very good!

Very high in weight watcher points, very high in fat. I'm sure it's delicious, but I'd try adding some fiber somewhere, getting rid of the high fat butter (maybe use I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray) and using fat free ingredients elsewhere. Sorry for my seemingly negative thoughts....I just follow my plan to the letter! I get a lot of recipes from, quick and easy to follow, and all dieting info is right there for you.

I used roosted red peppers( hot and spicy). It was really good but I realized I should have used (red pepper as in green peppers) Other than using the wrong ingredients it was the bomb.

It might have been the peppers I used, but this dish was just a little too spicy for me. And that is saying a lot because it takes a lot of spice for me to think something is too hot. I will try it again cutting the peppers in half.

This was an amazingly delicious meal. I brought some to work with a small salad and had to post the recipe on the board so people could copy it to take home. So far everyone that tried it just loved it.
