Feta and Pesto Stuffed Chicken Breasts
I love making stuffed chicken breasts recipes for dinner, like this Feta and Pesto Stuffed Chicken Breasts recipe. They are easy to make, put in the oven and then get other things done that I need to while the Feta and Pesto stuffed chicken breasts are baking.
When it comes to feta, this tastes amazing with both Greek feta and Bulgarian feta. I am going to recommend if you can get your hands on some Bulgarian Feta cheese that you try it! They do have a bit of a different flavor, but ever since this summer when my cousin gave me some Bulgarian Feta cheese I have been using it in EVERYTHING! Anything that I would normally use Greek Feta cheese for I have been switching out for Bulgarian Feta cheese and LOVING all of it!
When you are making this and pesto stuffed chicken if you have a few extra minutes, make some homemade pesto. It is SUPER easy to make, but fresh pesto is amazing. The jarred stuff will work, but like it is with just about anything, homemade is the way to go when you are wanting the best flavors possible.
