Stuffed Greek Chicken

Hello zebras!

New year, new resolutions, new momentum! Although it’s not necessarily my main goal to lose weight but I’m usually craving healthy food options at the beginning of each new year. Perhaps it’s because I tend to completely overeat on sweet treats over the festive period and then am looking forward to something light on my plate. Of course, it doesn’t need to be all healthy for every day of the new year, but let’s at least start with good intentions ;).

A perfect dish for one of those ‘lighter’ days is this stuffed Greek Chicken – yummy chicken breast, filled to the brim with zucchinis, tomatoes, onions and a bit of lemon topped with feta and mozzarella… soooo delicious, have a try!


Stuffed Greek Chicken

makes 4 servings

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Salt & pepper
  • 4 chicken breast fillets
  • 1 zucchini
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 untreated lemon
  • 150 g feta
  • 150 g grated mozzarella

Preheat oven to 200° C. Cut about 5 slits into the chicken breasts – without cutting all the way through – and place on a tray lined with baking paper.

Peel and finely chop the garlic and mix together with the olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper in a small bowl and then brush it evenly onto the chicken. Half the zucchini (lengthwise), tomatoes, onion and lemon and cut into thin semicircle slices. Fill the slits in the chicken with those veggies. Finally sprinkle with feta and mozzarella and bake for 25 minutes in the oven.


Serve with rice, pasta or bulgur – or just as a low carb main without a side – this dish is wonderfully versatile!

Do you feel the same way as me and do you try to eat healthier at the beginning of the year?


Stay sweet & HAPPY COOKING!

Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Hey sweeties!

When my family is having a BBQ, there’s one thing that always has to be a part of it: pasta salad. In our family, it is traditionally prepared with a yogurt dressing as well as peas, carrots and sausage. Reaaaally yummy but also quite rich. It won’t leave much space in your stomach for all those other delicious things on the grill.

So today I’ll show you a Mediterranean alternative with dried tomatoes, rocket and mozzarella – super quick and delicious!


Mediterranean pasta salad

makes 2-4 servings

  • 200 g pasta
  • 1 pack mini Mozzarella
  • 50 g dried soft tomatoes
  • 50 g rocket
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • Italian herb mix
  • Salt, pepper

Cook the pasta according to the instructions, then drain and set aside.

Cut the mozzarella and the dried tomatoes. Wash the rocket and chop roughly. Combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, herbs and some water to prepare a dressing, season with salt and pepper.

Mix everything with the pasta, let it infuse for about an hour and serve.


Do you serve pasta salad at your barbecues? And if so, what is your traditional recipe?

Stay sweet & HAPPY COOKING!
