This recipe for spinach and feta chicken rollups is tailor-made for a date night at home.

A  couple of evenings ago found us at our little house in town, sans kids.  This presented a rare opportunity to do some miscellaneous chores as well as put together an easy meal, slanted perhaps more toward the taste of parents rather than the 10 and under crowd. There would be no chicken fingers or homemade beef-a-roni at our house tonight.

Not every meal has to be kid friendly.

Topping the list of foods that our kids probably won’t ask for would be:

  • Spinach

  • Feta cheese

And this big list is in no particular order! Under ordinary circumstance our gang of six boys would pass the plate on a recipe that has either of these two ingredients in it.

As a bonus, this easy date night dinner is on the healthy side.

We like to pair this easy date night dinner with some quinoa and wilted spinach. Have you ever made quinoa? It’s super simple. Just some hot broth or water and a sauce pan, that’s about all you need. We always use our own chicken stock if we have some on hand. It’s so easy to make!

Do you know the difference between broth and stock?

Here’s a little food tip for you: Did you know you should rinse quinoa before cooking it? Doing so helps prevent a bitter taste. We’ve got a great kitchen food hack with this easy rinse method for quinoa, be sure to check it out!

Rinsing quinoa will prevent it from tasting bitter.

If you make these spinach and feta chicken rollups, serve it on a bed of wilted spinach. You will be amazed at how a huge bag of spinach will shrink down to a hand-size portion. As a bonus, you will also feel good about eating healthy. Works for me every time!

You can wilt spinach easily on the stove top, or in the oven.

This easy date night dinner of spinach and feta chicken rollups has it all, without going overboard.  Some simple chicken breasts, some every day vegetables and a sprinkle of feta cheese, all with a base of hearty and nutritious quinoa.  Try it tonight and let us know you like it!

  1. 5 stars
    My girlfriend made this dinner for me the night I proposed, it will always be “our dinner” and I can’t thank you enough for inspiring her to prepare this on that special night.

  2. Wow I was just saying with Easter coming up, I did not want to make a turkey. I was thinking of stuffed chicken breasts. This just might be the dinner I was looking for.

  3. I am such a fan of roulades. I love how you can flavor and texture with a roulade. It also looks great!
