An easy and satisfying dish—chicken filled with savory spices and tangy feta cheese. Serve with couscous.


  • 4 chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 Tbs ginger, minced
  • 4 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 6 med tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 Tbs fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 Tbs fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • In the side of each chicken breast, make a slit. Stuff one quarter of feta cheese into each pocket.
  • In a large, non-stick skillet over high heat warm the olive oil. Add chicken; sauté on each side until nicely browned and cooked throughout, about 5 to 8 minutes per side. Remove chicken from heat and set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium. In the same skillet, add ginger, cumin, coriander, and cayenne pepper. Sauté for 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes; cook until they become sauce-like, about 6 minutes. Stir in parsley, mint, sugar, and salt.
  • Return chicken to pan; warm in pan for 1 minute.
  • Place chicken breast on serving platter; top with tomato sauce.
