Method:

Broil

Ingredients

1 medium
red bell pepper
2 clove
garlic, minced
1/4 c
feta cheese, crumbled (about 1 ounce)
2 Tbsp
kalamata olives, finely chopped
1 1/2 Tbsp
fresh basil, chopped
1 tsp
greek seasoning
1/4 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
black pepper
8
boneless skinless chicken breasts (6-oz each)
1-2 tsp
dried basil
salt and pepper, for seasoning

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat broiler.
2
Cut bell pepper in half lengthwise and remove seeds and membranes. Place pepper halves on foil-lined baking sheet, skin side up. Broil 15 minutes or until blackened. Place in air-tight container for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, finely chop the 2 bell pepper halves.
3
Mix together chopped bell pepper, garlic, cheese, olives, basil, Greek seasoning, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
4
Cut a horizontal slit in thickest portions of each chicken breast to form a pocket (but do not cut all the way through). Spoon the pepper/feta/olive mixture into each pocket. Close the opening with a toothpick. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper, and sprinkle the top side with dried basil.
5
Place chicken on broiler rack, and broil 6-8 minutes each side, or until done (it may take additional time, depending on thickness of the chicken breasts). Remove from oven, loosely wrap with foil and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
