Add the chicken and massage the marinade into the chicken and leave for an hour.
Preheat your oven to 180°C.
In a hot pan, melt the butter and oil.
Once the butter has melted, dry the chicken breasts and pan-fry for 2 minutes on each side.
Remove the chicken breast from the pan and carefully cut a pocket in the centre of the chicken. Do not discard the pan.
Stuff the pocket with the feta and lemon zest, then put the chicken on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 8 minutes.
Whilst chicken is in the oven, return the pan to high heat and add the wine to deglaze the pan, then add the cream and allow to simmer for 2 minutes.
Drizzle the sauce over the hot chicken before serving.
