Feta and Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breasts

What's not to love here? Bacon, feta...mmmm. Blaine said this was really good! I had a bite and my piece of chicken was kinda weird, so I stuck with baked potatoes, but our guests seemed to enjoy them as did our ever-so-picky daugther, so it must be good!

Feta and Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breasts

8 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
4 cloves crushed garlic
1 tablespoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
4 slices feta cheese
4 slices bacon, fried and drained

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a small bowl combine the oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix together. Place chicken in a 9x13 inch baking dish and pour oil mixture over chicken.
Stuff each chicken breast with 1 slice feta cheese and 1 slice bacon. Secure open sides with toothpicks.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 35 minutes.

I marinated the chicken in the sauce for about an hour and a half before cooking. I also layed an extra halfway cooked piece of bacon on top of each breast for extra calories flavor. I cooked a little longer than stated (7 minutes?) because I am paranoid about raw chicken.

It's nice of you not have commented that the dinner guests invited themselves over.

Yeah those jerks invited themselves over and then had the gall to bring ice cream with them. And a really good salad. Sheesh.

Melty, refrozen ice cream no less. You should invite them more often.
