Recipe: Greek Chicken

Greek Chicken

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 (4 ounce) package crumbled feta cheese with basil and tomato
1/4 cup chopped red pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In 9x13 inch baking dish, arrange chicken.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Drizzle lemon over chicken.  Sprinkle feta cheese and red pepper over top. Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Makes 6 servings.

Recipe can be found on page 191 in 

When I see feta cheese, my mind automatically thinks Greek food.  My family loves Greek food.   Whenever we are in Denver, we go to a Greek restaurant called Pete's.  This recipe isn't Pete's, but when we are missing his cuisine, we turn to this quick and easy recipe.    

I like to serve Greek Chicken with grilled pita bread, couscous, and a nice salad with Greek dressing.  Although couscous is a pasta, grocery stores usually stock it by the rice.  They even have a quick and easy flavored variety of couscous.  If you have never had it before give it a try.
