    This excellent and super easy recipe is a breeze. Just stuff the chicken (it's easy with this stuffing!), place it in a dish, pour the sauce over, and bake. If you want to make it even easier, use the seasoned feta cheese with sun-dried tomatoes you can find in just about any supermarket. Then you can omit the parsley, oregano, and olive oil! Yum.
