Crumbled feta cheese and fresh vegetable strips bring the flavor of the Mediterranean to the table in no time with this quick all-in-one dish.
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram or thyme
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 (4-ounce) skinned, boned chicken breast halves
1 teaspoon olive oil
2/3 cup red bell pepper strips
1/2 cup vertically sliced red onion
1/3 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled feta cheese, divided
Oregano sprigs (optional)
How to Make It
Combine first 4 ingredients in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in flour mixture. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and cook 4 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Add bell pepper, onion, broth, and vinegar to pan; cook 5 minutes or until vegetables are soft, stirring frequently. Spoon bell pepper mixture into a bowl; stir in 2 tablespoons cheese. Return chicken to pan, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese. Cover; cook over low heat 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Divide the vegetable mixture evenly between 2 plates, and top each serving with a chicken breast half. Garnish with oregano sprigs, if desired.
This recipe was delicious! I used zucchini and carrots instead of a red bell pepper because I didn't have one and it tasted very good! Very flavorful dish and was easy to make. I would definitely serve it to company!
This is a quick and easy way to make a roast chicken dinner without having to roast a whole chicken. It was very doable for a week night although I made it with garlic-mashed potatoes, which was more time consuming. Pairing it with garlic roasted couscous would definitely be good too. My DD even ate the peppers and onions with the feta! 3 foods she is not very fond of. Looks like we are keeping this one in our regular rotation.
This is a delicious chicken recipe!!! I pounded the chicken breasts and doubled the veggies and
broth, but otherwise followed the recipe. My husband wants this again this week. It is simple to make
and oh sooooooooo good.
