Feta Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Breasts

I was looking for a recipe that used feta cheese. This recipe had TONS of high ratings on ALLRECIPES.COM... and I love bacon, so I picked this one to try out. I pounded the chicken pretty thin and added a piece of bacon to wrap around the chicken. The chicken was really moist and the feta and bacon complemented each other well. This recipe was very easy to make, but still tasted really good.

8 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
4 cloves crushed garlic
1 tablespoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
4 slices feta cheese
4 slices bacon, fried and drained


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2.In a small bowl combine the oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix together. Place chicken in a 9x13 inch baking dish and pour oil mixture over chicken.
3.Stuff each chicken breast with 1 slice feta cheese and 1 slice bacon. Secure open sides with toothpicks.
4.Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 35 minutes.
