Baked Greek Chicken

Chicken is a staple food in my house, we probably eat chicken at least 3 times a week. I’m not complaining but there are only so many things you can do with chicken before it gets boring, am I right? I love finding new recipes to try out, especially ones that include foods that I love! Spinach and feta cheese are two of my all time favorite foods to incorporate together, whether it be in quiches or now chicken!  Also, my favorite breakfast meal is a delicious spinach and feta omelette from a local, family-owned breakfast joint!

I feel like the best recipes are the ones that are fairly quick and require little preparation. These types recipes fit my schedule because I get home around dinner time when my toddler wants all my attention but I really need to focus on cooking, so having an easy recipe allows me to do both! Let’s check out what you’ll need for this recipe:


2 chicken breasts

1 medium onion, diced

1 tablespoon Kelapo Coconut Oil; divided

10 ounces fresh spinach

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1/4 cup feta cheese

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon parsley

Kelapo Coconut Oil Cooking Spray


  1. Preheat oven to 365 degrees F.

  2. In a large nonstick skillet heat 1 teaspoon oil and saute onion until golden brown.
  3. Add spinach to skillet and wilt; stir in lemon juice, feta, salt & pepper. Set to the side.
  4. Cut chicken breasts in half without cutting completely through; divide spinach mixture between both and secure with toothpicks.
  5. Sprinkle tops of chicken with paprika and parsley.
  6. Spray baking dish with Kelapo Coconut Oil Cooking Spray and place chicken breasts in.
  7. Cook chicken for about 35 mins; remove toothpicks and serve.
Like I said previously, I love feta cheese, so I like to sprinkle some on the top of my chicken before serving. If you prefer melted cheese, try adding the cheese on top of the chicken when there is about 5 minutes left on the timer. This will will give the chicken a nice cheesy top, yum! I also like cooking my chicken on a lower heat for a little bit of a longer time because it leaves the natural juices of the chicken intact. This meal is very succulent and just the chicken fills you up which is fine because of the added spinach inside! What is your favorite quick dish to cook?
