As seen on Everyday Foods. Quick to prepare, and very flavourful.

"Wonderful flavor! I never realized how flavorful feta cheese is. And it was a pretty easy recipe although I had trouble stuffing the cheese inside the chicken. Next time I may just put the cheese on top after cooking the chicken. "

Are you making this? 
4 ea Chicken breasts

Original recipe makes 4 Servings

Servings  

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 addition 5 - 8 minutes until chicken is cooked throughout.

5. Remove chicken from pan. Add chicken stock to pan and losen brown bit from pan to disolve into liquid. Add juice of 1/2 a lemon to pan and simmer for a minute or two. Turn head to low or off an swirl butter into sauce until disolved.

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.

Hard to get cooked through. Simmer in chicken stock to get chicken moist. The lemon was a nice touch. Use olive oil. The lemon and butter cut the richness of the oil, or else it would be over powering.

It would be nice to know what kind of oil and how much to use. You can't get the gravy quite right without knowing this info.

I found this recipe to be bland, and boring. The chicken was dry in some areas since the instructions do not indicate to simmer in sauce.

Delicious and loved it. Will definitely make this again. We served with mixed vegs and boiled potato and put some pan juice over them.

Made this tonight for my family...It was good but I think it would be better with a different sauce. Maybe one made with some chicken stock and wine instead of one made with the lemon juice. I'd definitely make again though!
