Spinach, feta and fresh herbs is a fabulous flavour combination that I particularly enjoy in meals like spanakopita, a Greek style spinach and feta pie wrapped in crispy phyllo pastry. Baking chicken with toppings is a dish that is super easy and the spinach and feta flavour combo is and great one for it! This dish starts with the mixture of spinach and feta along with parsley, dill, green onions, lemon and garlic along with cream cheese which help bind it all together. This mixture is spread on top of the chicken and topped with more cheese before baking until the chicken is cooked and the cheese is melted! A quick and easy meal that tastes amazing!
