Today I thought we would take a trip to Greece. Last week I found Alanna Kellogg's great website Kitchen Parade and this great recipe for Greek Feta Chicken. I wrote to her and told her it sounded great and promised to try it out and let her know what the verdict was. I liked the idea of preparing something light and easy for lunch, especially on a hectic Saturday!
1 low fat yoghurt
1 clove garlic, smashed or minced
Dried oregano - I did not have dried oregano but had some frozen mixed herbs that I used
black pepper & salt
3 chicken breasts - cut in mouth sized pieces
250 g feta cheese
Whisk the first four ingredients ( yoghurt, garlic, herbs, salt & pepper) together. Place the chicken in the marination and marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Place chicken on oven rack and bake for 6 to 8 minutes, then turn over. Sprinkle with feta and bake for another 5 to 8 minutes.
That was it!
Tom found it a tad too dry. I served this with a Potato/Vegetable Gratin which had a bit of liquid to it so it was not all that bad. Soeri, picked off the feta and ate the chicken mixed with the gratin. The next time I will maybe take the chicken out of the oven in between and coat with the marination, or maybe put the chicken with a bit of the marination into the oven to keep it moist.
