Stuffed Chicken with Pesto, Sweet Peppers and FetaPosted: November 26, 2011
I thought it was about time for another fancy meal. This one came straight out of my imagination. Fun stuff!
First, I sauteed some tasty sweet peppers.
Then I flattened a chicken breast to make it easier to stuff.
Then I put a layer of roasted red pepper pesto, feta cheese and the sauteed peppers.
I made a mixture of bread crumbs and spices to coat the chicken with.
Then I rolled the stuffed chicken breasts in the breadcrumb/spice mixture. I didn’t have any toothpicks to secure it, so I McGuiver’d some BBQing skewers to hold the chicken together. Looks funny, but it worked really really well!
I served it with a side of noodles and garlic toast. Very tasty meal!
