Lemon-Feta Chicken

To kick things off, here's the recipe for that yummy looking Lemon-Feta Chicken above, adapted from a Donna Hay recipe. Please excuse the tired looking green beans, it was one humdinger of an arsenic hour with the kids last night!

So, no, there's no oozing sauces or flaky pastry, but it was pretty good! Even hub liked it...here's my lower-in-fat-than-Donna's version.

what you need

2 chicken breasts
Feta cheese (I used the Mainland Feta Crumble for added speed!)
5 sprigs oregano
1 tbs lemon zest
2 tbs lemon juice
Olive oil, to drizzle
Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper

what to do
  1. Preheat oven to 180C
  2. Place chicken, a small amount of feta, oregano, lemon zest and juice in a baking dish
  3. Drizzle with a little olive oil, salt and pepper
  4. Bake for 18 mins or until chicken is cooked through
  5. Serve with couscous and green veges or salad.
  6. Serves 2.

with feta the low fat is just as good, in the deli section at Coles they have the greek style low fat which I use in my spinach pie. Trying the chicken dish tonite, thanks!
