    Gluten-free Greek-style Chicken Breasts (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    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.


    • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1½ cups water
    • ½ cup black, green or Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
    • 1 cube gluten-free chicken bouillon, crumbled
    • 3 tablespoons potato flour, divided
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
    • ¼ pound feta cheese, crumbled
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon dried or ¼ cup fresh oregano
    • 2 cups loosely packed torn fresh spinach leaves
    • ½ cup torn fresh sweet basil leaves
    • 3 small ripe tomatoes, chopped
    • ½ cup fresh chives, as garish

    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.
