  • Melt butter in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds. Gradually add spinach to pan, turning with tongs. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts, stirring frequently. Remove from pan; cool.

  • Place chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet.

  • Crumble one-fourth of feta cheese over each chicken breast half; divide spinach mixture evenly among chicken breast halves. Roll up, jelly-roll fashion. Tuck in sides; secure each roll with wooden picks. Place chicken in skillet. Cook over medium-high heat 3 minutes. Turn chicken over; cook 2 minutes or until browned. Add tomatoes to skillet; sprinkle chicken with Parmesan cheese. Transfer skillet to oven.

  • Bake at 425° for 25 minutes or until chicken is done and tomatoes begin to burst. Transfer chicken and tomatoes to a serving platter. Add wine to skillet, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Remove wooden picks from chicken; cut into slices. Serve with tomatoes and pan juices.

  • Tip: You can prep in the morning, and then pop it in the oven when you're ready.
