MEDITERRANEAN-STUFFED CHICKEN THE WHOLE FAMILY WILL LOVE
Whether you’re on the keto diet, or just looking for a family-friendly dinner that’s low in carbs, you will LOVE these Mediterranean-stuffed chicken breasts.
The filling only takes about 10 minutes to make. And if you chop the filling ingredients fine enough, your kids won’t even know there are vegetables in the chicken. They’ll just taste cheesy, chickeny, goodness.
I can’t take credit for creating the recipe though. This tasty Mediterranean-Stuffed Chicken breast recipe is from the new Foster Farms DORI™ on package QR code, accessible via smartphones in California, Oregon, and Washington.
FOSTER FARMS DORI™ QR CODE
Foster Farms just made shopping for chicken a lot more fun with DORI™ a new interactive, on-package QR code on all packages of Foster Farms fresh chicken. Let me show you how it works.
First we headed to the meat section of our local grocery store. I was excited to see that they had the Foster Farms No Antibiotics chicken breast fillets on sale.
Next, Eric pulled out his phone to scan the QR code on the label. It’s that funny looking square right next to the picture of DORI™.
With new iOS 11 and Android updates scanning QR codes is easier than ever. You don’t even have to download an app! Just open the camera on your iPhone or Android device and scan. This is super handy in the store because DORI™ has coupons you can use to save even more!
Once you scan the code, it takes you straight to DORI™! That’s access to coupons for Foster Farms chicken, along with hundreds of recipes and other great info. I was able to save my coupon, and pick our Mediterranean-stuffed chicken dinner recipe right there in the store.
Once I got home with all my ingredients (and a great deal on Foster Farms chicken!), I was ready to make dinner.
HOW TO MAKE MEDITERRANEAN-STUFFED CHICKEN BREASTS
Start by gathering your ingredients. You’ll need Foster Farms Boneless Skinless Breast Fillets, feta cheese, marinated artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, green onions, oregano (fresh or dried), and salt and pepper.
Mix the artichoke hearts, feta, red peppers, green onions, and oregano together to make your stuffed chicken filling.
Now you need to cut a pocket into each chicken breast. Use a sharp knife and start at the side of the thickest part of the breast. Slice into it but not all the way through.
Now you can fill each chicken breast with 1/4 of the Mediterranean filling.
Next use toothpicks to close up the pocket, making sure all the filling is securely inside.
Sprinkle each stuffed chicken breast all over with salt and pepper. Then grill on an outdoor grill, or in a grill pan on the stove. Always make sure to use a meat thermometer and cook until the thickest part of the chicken is 165 degrees F.
For a complete meal I like to serve the stuffed chicken breasts with a Greek salad or some of my garlic Parmesan broccoli on the side.
