Tomato and Feta Cheese Chicken Bake

Chicken covered in a homemade tomato sauce with feta cheese, garlic and herbs.  So good!  And, it's made with fresh ingredients that are actually good for you!

I made up a recipe for some chicken tonight and the kids loved it.  They called it pizza chicken because it smelled like pizza.  Enjoy!

5-6 boneless chicken breasts.  I used 5 large chicken breasts.

For the marinade:
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. Oil of Choice (I used avocado oil)
  • 1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbsp. Minced Garlic

  • 10-12 small tomatoes, quartered 
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning blend
  • 1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • Oil of choice for pan (I used avocado oil)
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (I used the garlic and herb blend)

Combine marinade and pour over chicken. Put marinated chicken in fridge.  If you're in a hurry, you can just let it soak for a few minutes.  If you have the time, let it soak all day.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Quarter tomatoes.  Heat skillet over medium heat and add oil and minced garlic.  Once oil is nice and hot, add tomatoes and seasonings.  Cook for about 5 minutes, until tomatoes are nice and soft.  Remove from heat and stir in feta cheese.

Remove chicken from fridge and pour tomato and feta cheese sauce over chicken.  Bake, uncovered for 45-50 minutes.
