Stuffed Chicken Breasts

I had a half of a market bunch of kale kicking around in my fridge after my BSI entry last week, waiting for a recipe. The Sunday before my surgery I decided to stuff some chicken breasts as a last hurrah in cooking before being bed bound for a week (or so). That's where the kale comes in to play and play it did. With feta cheese happily tucked inside chicken breasts and a crunchy coating. OK see now that is just NOT FAIR I'm stuck in bed with nothing to eat and I've made my stomach growl. Hmmph!

Kale and Feta Suffed Chicken Breasts

5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons of feta
5 tablespoons wilted kale - for me this 1/2 a market bunch center ribs removed, torn in to bite sized pieces then wilted

2 beaten eggs

in a shallow pan or bowl combine:
1/2 cup flour
1/4 grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic granules
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper


cut a small pocket in each breast
stuff each breast with 1/5 of the kale and feta mix
close and secure with a toothpick or 2

when they are all stuffed dredge them well in the beaten eggs and roll in
the flour mix, shake of the extra
place on a lightly greased baking sheet
bake a 375 for 25-35 minutes until they are cooked through and and crispy brown

If you have to have a mr. misto oil spritzer go ahead and give them a quick blast with it before baking and the crust will be even more divine!

Enjoy!
