Greek-style Chicken

We've had this a couple of times and we all like it!  It's another versatile meal that can be served atop salad greens or served with fresh Italian bread.

Greek-style Chicken

Serves 4
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 c. lemon juice
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbsp. minced)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 18 large black olives, drained, pitted, and chopped (we used a whole can because we love olives)
  • 2 Tbs. parsley
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • feta cheese
Mix 2 Tbsp. olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Marinate chicken in this mixture for 30 to 60 minutes.  In large skillet sautee garlic and onions in 1 Tbsp. olive oil.  Add tomatoes and olives and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes, stirring often.  Add 1 Tbsp. parsley and thyme.  Stir to combine.  Remove chicken from marinade and place in a baking dish.  Cover with vegetable mixture and sprinkle with remaining parsley.  Cover dish with foil and bake at 375° for 40 minutes.  Top with feta before serving.
