I was poking around the inter webs searching for chicken recipe that used feta. This was due to the simple fact that I had chicken breasts and feta in the fridge that needed to be consumed before they went bad. Thankfully I found a simple recipe on the Kitchen Parade blog. You could grill this, but I was feeling lazy and just used the broiler instead. The result was spectacular. The chicken was juicy, tender, and delicious. Serves four and is about 450 calories per serving.
- 2 lb of boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into approx 1/4 lb pieces
- 1 cup fat free plain yogurt
- 6 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (must be cold)
Mix the yogurt and garlic in medium sized container or bowl. Add chicken and coat well with yogurt. Marinate for 30 minutes.
Heat broiler to high heat. Cover cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place chicken pieces on cookie sheet and broil for 5 minutes. Flip chicken and broil 5 more minutes. Remove pan from oven. Flip chicken and carefully place cold feta on each piece of chicken. Broil 5 more minutes. NOTE: Keep a close eye on the chicken, if the chicken is burning, turn the broiler to medium. However, you do want a few charred bits.
