h2Chef’s Note/h2
pSpinach, onion, feta and lemon are just made for each other. Frozen spinach is not only easier to use, but just as good. One of the best things about stuffed chicken is that you can do it in advance, refrigerate it, and pop it in the oven when you need it. This recipe freezes in the “raw” state very well. For those of you that prefer the dark meat, skinless boneless chicken thighs work just as well./p
