Feta baked Chicken wrap

 

When I first discovered my love for cooking I tried making traditional Chicken Cordon Bleu until I felt I had perfected it. After I moved to the middle east and no longer ate pork, I came up with my own version of this dish. Now years later I have once again reinvented it, eliminating any frying, adding feta cheese instead of cheddar and a flavorful cumin garlic sauce. So, here is my updated version of this much loved dish.

Ingredients

4 chicken breasts, no skin or bone

2 cups seasoned bread crumbs-or enough to coat chicken breasts

2 eggs whisked with 1/4 cup water

1 floret of broccoli cut into long bite size pieces, boiled or steamed until just tender.

1 cup of crumbled feta cheese

Garlic salt for seasoning

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Spray baking pan with non stick cooking spray

Using a kitchen mallet, pound chicken on each side making it thin.  Prepare all 4 breasts in this manner.

I set up an assembly line of:

A dish with the breadcrumbs

A dish with the whisked egg

A dish with the broccoli

A dish with the feta cheese

Take a piece of chicken and lightly sprinkle it with garlic salt, top with feta cheese and broccoli. Roll the chicken up and place seam side down on the tray. Continue this process with each piece of chicken. After you have completed all of the chicken, take a piece and carefully holding it together, roll it in egg wash and then in bread crumbs. Place on prepared baking pan.

Place tray in preheated oven, let  chicken cook for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and pour Garlic Cumin sauce over chicken and place back in oven. Let this cook an additional 30 minutes or until chicken is completely done.

Garlic cumin sauce

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter

3 cloves garlic chopped

1/2 cup flour

2 cups water-chicken bouillon

1 cup milk

1/4 tsp. cumin

Directions

Melt butter in sauce pan on low heat, add garlic, saute until light brown, add flour and whisk well, let mixture bubble, add water and milk, stir until thickened and smooth, add cumin,salt and pepper to taste.

    • thanks dear. It is one of our favorites and still people request it fried and more traditional so I do it that way when asked! I have high cholesterol and so I try not to fry and this has worked out well.

  11. I love stuffed chicken breast and your version with the Feta looks wonderful.
    Your post reminded me of a somewhat similar dish I used to make with goat cheese and sun dried tomatoes in the filling. Now I’ll plan on making it again! Thanks for the reminder. 🙂

  17. This looks absolutely delicious, Lynn. I love chicken and feta has such a wonderfully unique flavour. The green of the broccoli adds to the attraction of the dish. I’ll try this next time we have chicken breasts.
