A note about serious food allergies

Zeus and Hera, those oldie-but-goodie Greek gods, never seemed to have that great of a marriage, what with all his cheating and… well, all his cheating. That's not to say every Greek marriage is doomed: This one, of salty briny feta and fresh spinach, is a match made in the Elysian Fields. It enrobes the chicken with a flavor that's rich, cheesy, Greek perfection; every bite will make you wish the gods would grant you more and more. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.

    Start the Chicken

    Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Return pan used to make topping to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Place chicken in hot pan and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to prepared baking sheet. Chicken will continue cooking in a later step. If using pork chops, season same amount and cook until browned, 1-2 minutes per side. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    Finish the Chicken

    Divide topping evenly on chicken. Remove puff pastry from refrigerator. Carefully, stretch puff pastry over chicken, tucking ends under. Bake in hot oven until pastry is golden brown and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes. If using pork, follow same instructions for topping and puff pastry. Bake in hot oven until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 10-12 minutes. While chicken bakes, cook vegetables.
