Feta-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Makes 4 Servings

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 tsp finely shredded lemon peel
1 tbsp olive oil

1.  Using a sharp knife, cut a pocket in each chicken breast by cutting horizontally through the thickest portion to, but not through, the opposite side.  In a small bowl combine 1/4 cup of the feta cheese and the lemon peel.  Spoon cheese mixture into each pocket.  Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.

2.  In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat.  Add chicken.  Cook for 18-20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170°F), turning once.  Sprinkle chicken with remaining feta cheese.
