Tender and Juicy Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken Breasts

I don't know about you but I LOVE Mediterranean food! Most of it is much healthier than American foods and it's never short on flavor either.

I like to make this stuffed chicken breast when I'm having company for dinner or when my family and I want to have something semi-fancy but not overly time consuming.

If you can't take a cruise to the Med. today, this dish will transport your taste buds and it's a super healthy entree choice.

This recipe‬ makes 8 servings since I use it most often for dinner parties but it's always great to have healthy leftovers in the fridge for a quick meal on the run.



1 large red bell pepper

1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled feta cheese

2 tablespoons finely chopped pitted kalamata olives

1 tablespoon minced fresh basil

8 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breasts


Directions: Preheat broiler.

Cut bell pepper in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes.

Place pepper halves, skin sides up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; flatten with hand.

Broil 15 minutes or until blackened. Place in a zip-top plastic bag; seal. Let stand 15 minutes. Peel and finely chop.

Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

Combine bell pepper, cheese, olives, and basil.

Cut a horizontal slit through thickest portion of each chicken breast half to form a pocket.

Stuff 2 tablespoons bell pepper mixture into each pocket; close opening with a wooden pick.

Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Place chicken on a grill rack coated with cooking spray.

Grill 6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from grill; cover loosely with foil, and let stand 10 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!
