      The first time I went to make this I couldn't find the feta cheese I had bought the day before and this time as the hot weather had taken its toll on our parsley and I wasn't going to use mint as we don't care for it I used finely chopped baby spinach and as I was only filling 3 small breasts I ended up with some filling left over so I used up extra filo pastry that I had and made little triangles which I will cook up tomorrow as a snack dish but we all loved the chicken and to my surprise the DM did not pick out the spinach and actually ate and that gets bonus points from me any day :lol: thank you Deantini, made for Went Tom Market tag game.

      As much as we enjoy chicken, I had to try this one late last night for DS, and I. Very nice, and flavorful recipe, as the mint gave it extra flavor. Though I cut down the onions a little, made as posted. This is a nice change for chicken as we definately enjoyed this. The cooking times were right on the money. Made for Holiday Tag..

      Since I made this as a trial run for company next week, I cut the recipe in half to serve just the 2 of us, even using the mint, which is something I don't usually include! Very, very tasty & definitely what I'll be making for my company, thanks to you & the recipe you posted! I've prepared chicken breasts in a lot of different ways, but this recipe gives them a unique & very enjoyable flavor ~ Many thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
