Delicious Feta Stuffed Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce served with Roasted Butternut Squash Rice, it makes a perfect family meal.
You know those meals you kind of throw together at the last minute, combining a few ingredients left in the fridge, this was one of those meals and it was a genius combination as it tasted absolutely amazing.
I love stuffed chicken, especially where cheese is involved, but it just has to have a sauce in my opinion and this Roasted Red Pepper Sauce complimented it really well.
The sauce is super quick to make too, I just use jarred roasted red pepper in brine (no sugar/oil) and blend with some tomato paste and chicken stock and a little paprika.
You do need a blender of some description to make the delicious sauce to this Feta Stuffed Chicken and I use my Nutri Ninja Blender with Auto IQ. This blender is amazing. The auto IQ technology feature, mean it blends to a set pattern depending on what it is you are making. There is also an optional add-on for a food processor bowl, which is perfect for chopping and grating vegetables. Sauces and soups are literally so smooth.
Don’t worry though, you don’t need a fancy high tech blender like mine above, a good old immersion stick blender like the Koölle Electric Powerful 3-in-1 800 Watt Hand Stick Blender or a similar make will do the job too.
Wondering what to serve with this Feta Stuffed Chicken? I highly recommend my Roasted Butternut Squash and Rice it’s really yummy and compliments this dish really well, especially with the Roasted Red Pepper Sauce. I also served alongside some sauteed zucchini which I cooked with a little lemon zest and black pepper. Got to think of those speed feeds and zucchini is one of my favourites as it is generally super quick to cook.
