Description

Tender and juicy balsamic chicken breasts stuffed with fresh tomato and warm feta. This healthy dinner recipe is incredibly tasty, easy to make, and the chicken is coated in a homemade balsamic glaze. You’ll love this gluten-free, grain-free, and low-carb chicken dinner!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 medium chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
  • 2 tsp dried Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 roma or vine tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 4 oz crumbled feta
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced or finely chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and pat your chicken breasts dry with paper towels.
  2. Use a sharp knife to cut a pocket into the middle of each chicken breast, about 3/4 quarters of the way through. Be careful not to cut it all the way.
  3. Season the outside and pocket of the chicken with the Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  4. Evenly stuff each chicken breast with 1 or 2 slices of tomato and about 2 Tablespoons of crumbled feta. Use a toothpick to secure the chicken breasts, if necessary. 
  5. Heat a saute pan with olive oil to medium heat. Once hot, add the chicken breast to the pan and cook each side for 2 minutes. 
  6. Meanwhile, as the chicken cooks, combine the minced garlic cloves and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl.
  7. Once the chicken is done, pour the balsamic mixture over each chicken breast. Bring to a simmer and gently spoon over each chicken bread until the vinegar has slightly thickened to a glaze. This should take an additional 2 – 3 minutes.
  8. Carefully transfer the pan to the oven and continue to cook for 15 – 20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through or reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. Remove from the oven and let the chicken rest for 5 minutes.
  9. Spoon extra balsamic reduction on top and serve with a side salad or your favorite roasted vegetable. Enjoy!

Notes

TO STORE: in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 – 5 days.

TO REHEAT: place each breast in the microwave with a damp paper towel on top, until warm.
