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!
