Preparation

1. Make stuffing by combining feta and oregano in a bowl.

2. Create pocket in the thick end of the breast, without going through the other side. Stuff cheese evenly into the pockets. Season generously with salt and pepper on both sides

3. Heat pan at medium low before adding oil, so that the oil heats right away but does not start smoking.

4. Turn heat up to medium high and sear chicken for 6 - 7 minutes per side. Do not stir or touch until nicely browned to ensure they don't stick to the pan. Turn heat down to medium heat, cover and cook for an additional 5 - 8 minutes until chicken is cooked throughout.

5. Remove chicken from pan. Add chicken stock to pan and loosen brown bits from pan to dissolve into liquid. Add juice of 1/2 a lemon to pan and simmer for a minute or two. Turn heat to low or off and swirl butter into sauce until dissolved.

Serve chicken sliced to show off stuffing, and topped with sauce.

Notes

When searing, sear the side that you will serve facing up first, as the first side to be seared always comes out looking better.

Good recipe! Although if you have really thick breasts I would recommend putting them in the oven for 10 minutes to cook through.

Delicious ~ fragrant and juicy. I added some basil, sundried tomato and parsley to the stuffing. I also butterflied the chicken breast and then used toothpicks to hold it all together. Will cook this again

Smells awesome when cooking. Also, I added field mushrooms and about 3 leaves of coriander to the stuffing. Added 1 tsp minced garlic to sauce and used 1 cup of chicken stock. Final cook in oven at 220 celsius. Loved it so much. Only 267 calories too.
