Greek Stuffed Chicken

I enjoyed this recipe and the kids as well. I served this with a side of garlic butter noodles and lemon garlic roasted cabbage wedges. You can really make this dish your own. And you can be creative with your side dishes, like a orzo, salad, or potatoes. The first time I did this recipe I followed it exactly. However, here are a few tips.

A Few Tips:

  • Season your vegetables w/ salt & pepper or as you see fit.
  • I used the mozzarella lightly and as a melting cheese and topped with feta after it comes out of the oven.
  • I sliced the onion and lemon in rounds to be placed on top of the chicken instead of between slits.
  • I also I say if you have a really good Greek seasoning like ‘Zoe’s Kitchen’ Spice of Life Seasoning. Then add it to your olive oil and some chopped capers if you would like a briny taste.

I think that is it, I hope you all enjoy this simple chicken dish. I hope the kids like it too.
