Greek Salsa Chicken

Featured on:


The Stuff of Success




Nap-Time Creations


On my quest to continue and find new, fresh meals to prepare for my family I found this great recipe for Greek Salsa Chicken at Sweet Pea's Kitchen and knew we had to give it a try.  It will fit in nicely with my Oven Roasted Greek Potatoes.

I must admit I am starting to become scared of cooking because once again when I tried to cook last night my stove shot sparks at me.  This time it wasn't as scary, but it shorted out the stove and I couldn't cook.  I now have a sorta new stove.  Older than the one we had, but better than the one I had....I think.  The apartment wanted to just fix my stove and that really didn't sit well with me so I got a stove from a vacant apartment.  I just pray that this one doesn't give me fits or else I may have to give up cooking before I blow myself and our building up.

Anyway...time to get to the good stuff :)



Greek Salsa Chicken from Sweet Pea's Kitchen
3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
2 TBS Olive Oil
2 Lemons, cut into wedges
Salt and Pepper to taste
4 oz Crumbled Feta Cheese
1 cup Grape Tomatoes, halved (I used what I had left and added 2 roma tomatoes, diced and seeded to make 1 cup)
1/4 cup Pitted Kalamata Olives
2 TBS Dried Parsley
1/4 cup Lemon Juice
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1/2 TBS Dried Oregano

  • In a large bowl combine feta, tomatoes, olives, parsley, lemon juice, 1/4 cup olive oil, and oregano then cover and chill in the refrigerator
  • Heat remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat and sear chicken on each side for about 3-5 minutes

  • Place chicken in a baking dish
  • Squeeze lemon wedges over chicken and then place wedges around chicken and roast in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 20-30 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked
  • Plate chicken and top with salsa

This was just an all around fabulous meal!  If you remember I have some folks in my house who do not like kalamata olives.  I purposely left them big so they could pass them to me :)  Everyone seemed to love this and I could see using leftovers on top a bed of romaine or even wrapped in a tortilla or pita bread.  Enjoy!

  9. Wow! I'm Greek (you know, a native one) -- I can tell you, this is not exactly a traditional recipe, but it could have been :)
    Aaaaall the ingredients are 100% Greek taste and, just by reading it, I Know the combination will work perfectly!
    I think I'll try it one of these days.

    1. I am sure it is "Americanized" a bit ;) I am new to Greek cuisine and am now wondering why in the world I haven't gone outside of the Gyro until recently. Everyone loved this combo here and I look forward to trying more Greek flavors. The flavors are so simple yet complex and tangy and well...just amazing!
