A very delicious chicken dish! The flavors of the feta, oregano and olives mingle wonderfully together. I would recommend using fresh oregano if at all possible and I always tenderize my chicken if I am going to serve whole breasts. I served this with spaghetti squash instead of the pasta and my husband and 2 year old loved it. I will be adding this to my recipe collection for guests as it is that good.
