Greek-Style Chicken

Each time I make this recipe I feel as if I won the lottery. The effort required to make this dish is very little for the amount of delicious goodness that is the end result. Because of this, it has become my go-to recipe when I do not know what is for dinner. Oh, and did I mention that it is good for you, too?

To start, spray a skillet with non-stick cooking spray, I use the Target brand olive oil kind, and start cooking some boneless, skinless chicken breast. I sprinkled these with salt, pepper, and Greek seasoning. This was the first time I used Greek seasoning, and now I put it on everything.

While the chicken cooks, slice some cherry tomatoes and pitted kalamata olives in half.

Flip the chicken when it is nice and brown on the bottom, about five minutes.

While the second side of the chicken cooks mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning in a bowl.

Yes this really is how I measure most of my seasonings when I am cooking. If time is an issue, any store-bought balsamic vinaigrette would work wonderfully. Toss the tomatoes and olives in the dressing.

Once the chicken is completely cooked, put it on a plate, top it with the tomato-olive mix (drain any excess dressing), and sprinkle with some feta cheese.

Serve with some broccoli, couscous, or any side of your choice. Enjoy!
