These are absolutely delicious; juicy and tender with just the perfect amount of spice. The stuffing is a combination of spinach with garlic and feta cheese. So yummy.

You can throw these together quickly, and have them on the table in under 30 minutes. Easy ingredients, tremendous flavor, and quick to make… What could go wrong…

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
