Valentine's Day Meal Idea

This is a delicious recipe that Tim and I really enjoy. It's also fairly easy, but the presentation is great making it the perfect thing for Valentine's Day (or any day).

Feta & Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Serves 4

INGREDIENTS
8 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
4 cloves crushed garlic
1 tablespoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
4 slices feta cheese or 1 cup crumbled feta
4 slices bacon, cooked, drained, and crumbled

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl combine the oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix together.
Place chicken in a 9x13 inch baking dish and pour oil mixture over chicken.
Stuff each chicken breast with 1 slice feta cheese and 1 slice bacon. Secure open sides with toothpicks.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes.


We like to top the cooked chicken with a semi-sweet marinara sauce and serve it with either pasta, rice, or red skinned potatoes and steamed veggies.

Ooh, sounds delicious! Bacon, cheese, garlic... what's not to like? I've never even seen sliced feta! Have you managed to find it like that before?

I would LOVE to make this, at my house. The problem is that my husband wouldn't even try it, due to the feta cheese. His loss!! Thanks for the recipe. I am glad you joined us, today, for Tempt My Tummy Tuesday.

Bacon, cheese, and chicken, my boys' three favorite foods! It looks wonderful! The only thing I need to pick up is the feta cheese. I wonder if you could use another kind of cheese...like swiss, or montery jack??

I'm sure you could give it another flavor with a different cheese. Experiment and let us know how it turned out.

I'm making it right now. Our local grocery store (read not a chain!) has feta by the chunk. It did crumble when I sliced it though. I'm trying tomato and basil feta cheese.
