3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and onions and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Toss in spinach, herbs and seasonings. Sauté for about 5 minutes until spinach and parsley are wilted. Remove from heat and drain off any additional liquid. Stir in the feta cheese.

4. Using a spoon, stuff the chicken breasts with the spinach and feta mixture. Place the stuffed breasts onto a baking sheet and brush them lightly with a bit more oil.

5. Bake for 40 – 45 minutes or until cooked completely through. Slice the chicken if you wish to display the beautiful color inside and garnish with lemon wedges.
