Chicken Spanaki

Chicken Spanaki (with Greek salad and oven baked pita with tzatziki)

Although I want to try out more Italian recipes, it’s a bit too much to do it all in one week. So last night I searched the Food Network for Greek recipes and found Chicken Breast Spanaki. I’m not entirely convinced this is a real Greek dish (it translates as Spinach Chicken), but these spinach, feta and egg stuffed chicken breasts sounded delicious! As sides, I made a simple Greek salad of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and kalamata olives (with a red wine vinaigrette) and baked pita bread in the oven to serve with tzatziki sauce, which I made with the leftover dill from the chicken, lowfat yoghurt, and garlic. Yum!

The filling for the chicken: Spinach, red onion, scallions, feta, egg, and dill

  1. Oooo I want!!! I created a full-blown mediterrian meal for valentine’s day this past year, first time making lamb, hummus and tzattziki sauce, and surprisingly it turned out well, but I preferred it with extra dill lol. Good job though, looks great 🙂
