2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil plus more for brushing

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, pounded to thickness

Half a cup mozarella , crumbled

4 garlic cloves, minced

spinach,finely chopped 

tomato slices

1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

1/2 cup dry white wine

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Lemon wedges

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper; brush with oil. Arrange chicken breasts in a single layer on prepared sheet and brush all over with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle chicken with feta, oregano, garlic, spinach,cheese and lemon zest, dividing evenly and keeping filling away from edges. Beginning at the narrower end of 1 chicken breast, roll up, enclosing filling as you would a jelly roll; tie with kitchen twine at 1" intervals to secure. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts.


Preheat oven to 180°. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken roulades and cook until brown on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer chicken roulades to a small roasting pan and bake 10 -15 minutes.

Add wine, and lemon juice to skillet; bring to a boil and cook, scraping up any brown bits, until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 5 minutes. Cut strings from roulades and place on plates. Spoon pan juices over; serve lemon wedges alongside for squeezing over.
