  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat grill. In a medium bowl, blend feta, tomatoes, mozzarella, onion, lemon juice, oregano, and pepper.
  • Insert a paring knife into the thickest side of one chicken breast, and cut horizontally to make a 3-inch pocket. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts. Divide feta mixture into four, and stuff a portion in each breast. Seal pockets with toothpicks. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle on salt.
