Feta-Stuffed-ChickenWith 3-weeks worth of eating everything upon my waistline, it was back to Pinterest to find some low calorie meal inspiration. Although I haven’t quite managed a fast day, we can’t say no to a new chicken recipe and this one is still delightfully low in calories!

These chicken breasts are simply baked in the oven, stuffed with a mixture of tangy sun-dried tomatoes, salty feta cheese, smooth cream cheese and dotted with fresh basil. Easy as that! I bought a packet of dried sun-dried tomatoes – not the jars filled with oil. You can easily rehydrate however many of the tomatoes you want by placing them in boiling water for 30 minutes before using. Having a packet of these gems in my cupboard has kept me ever so happy for adding to tomato sauces and loaves!

Each stuffed chicken breast will come to approximately 237 calories, depending on the size of your chicken breast. Ours pictured were quite frankly the fattest breasts I have come across, which were perfect for stuffing. They’ll take about 30 minutes in the oven (again, depending on how thick the chicken is. Please check it’s cooked thoroughly!).

These pockets are great served with potato wedges and would taste delicious over a lettuce and spinach salad. Enjoy!

A breakdown of the calories per serving:

  • 12.5g Greek Feta Cheese – 35 calories
  • 15 g Extra Light Soft Cheese Spread – 17 calories
  • Approx 2 sun-dried tomatoes (12.5g) – 22 calories
  • 1 chicken breast (approx 150g) – 163 calories

    Love the flavor combos! Anything with basil and I’m in. Especially loving that this is so healthy! Pinned it so I can add it to our dinner menu.

    Looks fantastic, but just wondering – what sort of cheese is “extra light soft cheese?”

      Hi! So sorry for the late reply. By soft cheese I mean cream cheese, like Philadelphia :) And extra light being the lowest fat version available! Hope that helps :)
