Stuffed Chicken with Pesto, Sweet Peppers and Feta

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!

    This is such an innovative recipe! Almost like a healthy Sicilian chicken, wrapped up and baked. I’m curious why you chose feta? An interesting departure from something Italian. Yumm!
