Spinach & Feta Stuffed Chicken Breasts: Freezer Skillet Meal

Spinach & Feta Stuffed Chicken Breasts make a great one skillet dinner, just add a side of pasta, potatoes, or rice for a wonderful meal that looks fancy without the work of a fancy dish. Since my kids love chicken and cheese I can sneak in the spinach and they pretty much eat most of it-mom for the win! Another thing I like to do with this recipe is to individually bag chicken breasts once prepped so I can make as many or as few as I need for your nice dinner. This is best done in a heavy pan like a cast-iron skillet that can be placed on top of the stove as well as in the oven so it is truly a one-pan meal. Enjoy this skillet meal now!


4 chicken breasts

½ cup feta

2 cups spinach leaves

2 cloves garlic crushed

sea salt and pepper to taste

olive oil to brush

gallon freezer bag

sandwich-sized bags


To prep:

  • Use a sharpie to write contents, cooking directions, and date on freezer bag.
  • Slice chicken breast in half, ¾ of the way through.
  • Stir garlic and feta together, stuff into the center of the chicken, dividing evenly between chicken breasts.
  • Divide spinach among chicken breasts and press into the center of each.
  • Brush the outside of chicken breasts with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and crushed black pepper to taste.
  • To make this dish easy to cook as many or as few as you need, bag each one in an individual sandwich bag, seal and place in a large freezer bag. This makes it easy to grab out just one for lunch as well as 4 or 5 for a dinner.

To Cook:

  • Remove as many as you need from the freezer, thaw completely.
  • Preheat oven to 400°
  • Place breasts in a large oven-safe skillet like a cast iron or you can also put them on a baking sheet with a lip after done with the skillet.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown on top.
  • Serve with rice, potatoes, or pasta and your favorite veggie, and dinner is served!

    I love. Your blog so far but it is not Android friendly . Not sure if that’s something you have control over or not..I don’t know anything about html code. But have no fear I still love your blog!

    Do you generally cook the spinach in the prep phase or just let it cook when you’re ready for the meal?
