Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375° F. Cut a 2-inch pocket in the thickest part of each chicken-breast half.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the Feta and tapenade, then stuff a quarter of the mixture into each pocket.
  3. In a nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium to high heat. Season the chicken with pepper. Add to skillet and cook 2 minutes per side or until brown.
  4. Transfer the chicken to an oven-safe baking dish that has been drizzled with 1 tablespoon oil. Bake for 18 minutes.
  5. When the chicken is 5 minutes from being finished, put the salsa and remaining tablespoon oil in the skillet and heat through.
  6. Add the spinach and cook until slightly wilted. Slice the chicken and serve with a squeeze of lemon juice, capers (if desired), and spinach on the side.

Quick Tip

Feta cheese chunks
Crumbled Feta sold in supermarkets can be dry, flavorless, and treated with additives. It’s worth buying a block of cheese and crumbling it yourself.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
