Method:

Slice the chicken in half, cover the chicken with plastic wrap. Use a rolling pin roll or beat the chicken breast until it is very thin.

 

Heat a large saucepan. Add the spinach, garlic and olive oil cook until the spinach has wilted. Add the crumbled feta and grated mozzarella cheese.

 

Season the breasts with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the spinach mixture evenly between the chicken breasts. Spread it evenly over the breasts. Roll the chicken up to cover the spinach. Cover each of the stuffed chicken breasts in the bread crumbs, make sure it is covered completely. Transfer into a baking dish. Make sure the “seam” is facing down.

 

Pour the melted butter over the crumbed chicken. Bake / grill in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Serve with a green salad.
