Feta Garlic stuffed chicken, wrapped in prosciutto

What a mouthful, literally. I tried to find a shorter name for this, but it just wasn't happening. These chicken breasts are stuffed with a garlic, feta and spinach then wrapped in prosciutto to bake. Its a great mixture of light and rich flavors and simple to prepare. This recipe serves two, so make 1 piece of chicken per person to make appropriate servings.

2 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 tablespoons Feta cheese
1 tablespoon Minced garlic
1/8 cup Steamed spinach
2 Large pieces of prosciutto
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 425. Place feta and garlic in small bowl and mix with fork, if your feta is too hard add a small amount of olive oil to make it more malleable. Steam spinach and chop, after chopped measure out 1/8 cup. Add spinach to feta mixture and mix well. Take chicken breast and butterfly cut length wise (like slicing a bun for a hamburger, only don't cut all the way in half). Place feta mixture in the middle of the chicken like a sandwich. Sprinkle salt and pepper over chicken breast and place large piece of prosciutto over chicken, covering as much as you can. Place chicken on baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked. Serve along side your favorite side dish and enjoy!
