    JenSmith's Note:

    I think my version of Greek chicken looks better and tastes more authentic than most of the other recipes I have tried. It's easy to make and tastes superb!

    1. 1
      In a small bowl, mix the cheese, minced garlic, lemon juice, and oregano with a fork until smooth.
    2. 2
      Place chicken in a large heavy-duty freezer bag. Pound the chicken to 1/2-inch thickness. Remove chicken and discard bag.
    3. 3
      With a knife or a small metal spatula, spread the cheese mixture over the inside of each chicken breast half to within 1/2 inch of the edge. Fold the chicken breast in half crosswise to enclose filling and secure with a wooden toothpick.
    4. 4
      On a plate, mix the salt, garlic powder, pepper and 1 TB flour and use this to coat the chicken.
    5. 5
      Heat oil on medium-high heat in a 12-inch skillet (it doesn't have to be nonstick). Add chicken to the hot oil and cook until golden brown on both sides, turning only once.
    6. 6
      While chicken is cooking, mix the chicken broth and remaining flour in a small bowl or measuring cup until smooth.
    7. 7
      Add the broth mixture, tomato and spinach to skillet with the chicken. Heat to boiling over high heat. Lower heat and simmer, covered, for 8-10 minutes until chicken is tender and no longer pink in the center.
    8. 8
      Remove toothpicks and discard.

      Very tasty and colorful with spinach and tomato. I also doubled the garlic and added a splash of lemon juice to the sauce.

      I thought this recipe was very good. I do agree with chef 1958 about the gahlick. I had to pair down this recipe to 2 people, but I still used the original amount of garlic called for. I am also a garlic fiend. Even with that amount, all of the flavors of the feta, oregano, spinach and tomato came through. The light crust from the flour gave it a great texture. The feta, by smashing it with a fork, ended up nice and creamy. We recommend serving with a side of alfredo.
