Ingredients

  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • 1/2 cup Pesto
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Feta
  • 1 tbsp Cooking oil

Instructions

  • Add olive oil to skillet and sear chicken breasts on medium high heat until the bottom is nicely browned then flip and repeat.
  • Remove from skillet and let rest till cool enough to handle, the inside should still be raw.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut a 2" slit into the side of the chicken breast and use your fingers to open a pocket inside the center of the breasts. Be careful not to tear a hole through.
  • Mix the pesto and feta together in a small bowl and then fill the chicken breast cavities with the filling.
  • Use toothpicks to close the hole opening so filling does not leak out during baking.
  • Rub any remaining mixture on the exterior of the breasts.
  • Bake in the oven until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, about 25 minutes depending on thickness.
  • Remove toothpicks and serve.

Notes

Note: Cooking time will vary depending on thickness of your chicken breast. Use a meat thermometer to guarantee good results.
