    Celiac.com 06/02/2016 - You want to introduce a dish that's sure to please, and likely to become a go-to dinner classic? This recipe for Greek-style chicken breasts marries fresh spinach, basil and ripe tomatoes with feta cheese for a truly tasty chicken dish.

    Ingredients:

    • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

    • ½ cup black, green or Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced

    • 3 tablespoons potato flour, divided
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
    • ¼ pound feta cheese, crumbled

    • 1 teaspoon dried or ¼ cup fresh oregano

    Directions:
    On large plate, combine 1 tablespoon potato flour, salt, and pepper. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine cheese, lemon juice, and oregano. Set aside.

    With a meat mallet, pound each chicken breast to about ½ inch thick.

    Spread cheese mixture on each chicken breast, leaving ½ inch border.

    Fold chicken breasts in half, securing each with a toothpick.

    Coat chicken breasts with potato flour mixture.

    In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat.

    Cook chicken breasts for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, until golden.

    In a small bowl, whisk together 1½ cups water, chicken bouillon cube, and remaining potato flour; pour over chicken breasts in pan.

    Add spinach and tomatoes to skillet, and bring to boil.

    Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer about 8 to 10 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink inside.

    Pull and discard toothpicks, and garnish with olives and fresh chives before serving. Some folks like flat parsley, but I prefer chives.

    This recipe comes to us from Robin Moore (Can also be chicken parmesan, shrimp parmesan, veal, etc...).
     
    Note: I do NOT deep fry the eggplant or bread it. The layering gives the same effect without being greasy. The proportions in this are variable and lots of things can make good additions, like sprinkling shrimp in. Amounts will vary on the size of the pan you use, and none are set in stone, especially the type of veggies you use. Additionally, you could slice chicken breasts up and layer them instead of eggplant, and this goes for veal or pork as well. Many people think the eggplant is chicken until I tell them otherwise. Its good ...
