Baked Mediterranean Chicken

Chicken does feature quite frequently in my menu plans ... and surely you would agree this Baked Mediterranean Chicken looks delicious. Here is a yummy and easy way to make a typical baked chicken breast more exciting.


6 servings
3 medium chicken breasts
1/2 cup roasted red peppers
2 cups baby spinach
2 tbsps butter
2 tbsps shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 cup light cream cheese

1. Cut chicken breasts in half through the centre, and pound flat to make 6 cutlets.
2 In a bowl, add cream cheese, parmesan cheese and chopped roasted red pepper.
3 Heat butter in a pan, and sauté spinach until wilted. Remove from pan and chop.
4 Add to bowl and mix with a spoon. Season with salt, pepper, or other preferred herbs and spices.
5 Spread a large spoonful of the mixture over each chicken cutlet.
6 Roll the cutlets and place on a lightly greased pan or parchment paper, seam-side down. Season with salt and pepper.
7 Bake at 400° F (200° C) for 45-60 minutes (depend
ding on your oven). Remove, let cool and enjoy!

Note: would also be great topped with a little tzatziki or other dressing.

Prep Time is 10 mins and Cook Time 45 mins

It looks delicious. We eat a fair bit of chicken and I'm always on the lookout for something new to do with it.
