Easy Chicken Breast Stuffed With Feta Cheese and Red Peppers








Ingredients:
2 Chicken Breasts cut into half horizontally
Salt and Pepper to taste
Lemon Juice - 2 tbsp
Dried Parsley - 1 tsp
Herbs De Provence - 1 tsp
Paprika Powder - Just enough to sprinkle
1/4 Cup - Crumbled Feta cheese
1 Red Bell Pepper - finely chopped
Fresh Parsley for garnishing
2 tsp Bread Crumbs
1 tsp Parmesan Cheese

Method:
Preheat the oven at 375 deg F.
First of all lay the chicken breasts flat in a ziploc bag and hammer or pound it with a rolling pin to make it thin. Be careful while you pound it, you might just end up making it too thin which we don't want.
Rub the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, lemon juice, dried parsley and herbs de provence.
On the middle of the breast spoon feta cheese and chopped red bell pepper. Then roll the breast tightly and secure the ends with a tooth pick so that the mixture doesn't escape out.
Now set these prepared chicken breasts onto an olive oil sprayed baking dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs, fresh parsley, parmesan cheese and a teaspoon of olive on each of them.
Bake for 40 minutes at 375 deg F. If you feel its not done after the specified cooking time, then keep for an additional 5-7 minutes.

You can cut them into slices and enjoy your meal with a cool salad :)
