Lemon Chicken with Oregano and Feta
The other day I happened to find this recipe while browsing through FoodGawker, and thought it looked really good and fresh...perfect for this time of year. I hate being weighed down by "heavy" winter foods when it starts getting nice around here, so this looked like a great option and it really was! It definitely had a Mediterranean feel to it, and the flavors worked very well with each other. Plus, I've totally been craving lemon like crazy lately so this was another great way to sneak it in! The only thing I'd do differently next time is add a bit more feta, I was admittedly skimpy with it to try and save calories! Other then that, this recipe was a winner!
Adapted from Gina's weight watchers recipes
2 Boneless skinless Chicken breasts, pounded to an even thickness and patted dry
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 garlic clove, minced
Oregano to taste (aprox. 1 tsp)
Feta cheese, crumbled
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a baking dish with non stick spray. Place chicken breasts in dish, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic and oregano. Squeeze lemon liberally over both breasts. Cover dish with foil and bake for 55 minutes. Remove foil from baking dish and sprinkle feta over both breats. Broil chicken for 2-3 minutes or until feta is golden brown.
