Making an Effort Monday: Feta-Stuffed Chicken

In an effort to make more of the things I love -- good food, pretty things, and organized spaces -- I bring you Making An Effort Monday!  It's not a huge effort, but it's an effort nonetheless!

A new recipe!  Are you so excited you might pee a little?  Don't be ashamed.  According to Whoopi Goldberg, Cleopatra did it too!

ANYdoodle, I decided I wanted feta inside a chicken breast.  Because who doesn't?  I was in the store, trying to decide what should also go inside said chicken breast when I saw sun-dried tomatoes and realized that might work, but I had no clue, really, because I have never had them.  Is that weird?  Jeremy said it was weird.  Plus, I LURVE tomatoes, so I decided to go for it.  This all resulted in a super-easy chicken recipe.  If you have defrosted chicken and three more ingredients, it takes five minutes to whip together.  Here's what I did:

1.  Sliced a chicken breast in half.
2.  Flopped it open and put a tiny bit of Greek dressing on each side, followed by feta and sun-dried tomatoes.
3.  Closed it up like a sub sandwich, shook  a little salt and pepper on top, threw it in the oven for about 25 minutes at 450 (or until the juices run clear and/or your meat thermometer says it's okay), and DONE.

It was good despite the fact that I did not have the imagination or energy to make Greek side dishes and learning I actually do NOT care for sun-dried tomatoes.  Huh.  Who knew?  Even though I did not enjoy that flavor, the chicken was good and simple to make.

Happy Monday!  If you made an effort this week, be sure to share it in the comments!


  1. I love tomatoes, but I HATE sun-dried tomatoes too! You wouldn't think the flavor would be so different....go figure!

  2. hmmm. i have the same dilemma. love 'maters, hate the sun-dried variety. maybe roasted red peppers with feta? i love roasted red peppers. i'm going to try this one.

  3. Oh, that is a good idea ... except for me. Ever since being pregnant, I can not eat any variety of bell peppers. Bad things happen! I used to eat like 3 green peppers a week. :( Let me know how it turns out with the peppers, though!!


Every time you leave me a comment, an angel earns its wings.
