Instructions

  1. Place steamer basket in pot over 1 inch of boiling water. Add spinach, in batches, turning with tongs and steaming until wilted, about 5 minutes. Transfer to plate to cool. Squeeze spinach dry and transfer to medium bowl.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add onion, feta, lemon zest, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper to spinach and stir to combine.
  4. Sprinkle chicken with remaining ½ teaspoon salt and remaining ¼ teaspoon pepper. Place chicken on work surface and arrange spinach mixture evenly over top of chicken. Roll chicken up to enclose filling and secure rolls with wooden toothpicks.
  5. Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in same skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown and cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  6. Just before serving, combine arugula and salad dressing in large bowl and toss to coat. Divide salad evenly among 4 plates. Remove and discard toothpicks from chicken and cut each chicken breast into 6 slices. Arrange chicken next to salad.
  7. Per serving (1 stuffed chicken breast and 1½ cups salad)
