Greek Feta Chicken Recipe

This Greek Feta Chicken Recipe I created a several years ago and is always a favorite for its flavor and presents so beautifully that it is fitting for a special occasion or just to make any day special. I created this recipe the first time almost exactly as I am presenting it to you. I had chicken breasts and wanted something different and got lucky with this delicious creation. The only difference is that I first used plain Feta Cheese and now I usually use Tomato Basil Feta Cheese for a little extra boost for a flavorful recipe.

I use my wok style skillet for this one pan meal. This is another case where my measurements are approximate and a matter of personal taste. Girard's Greek Feta Dressing provides all the flavor you'll want with no other seasonings used in this recipe.

I have small plum or Roma tomatoes and left the smaller ones whole and halved the larger tomatoes. I often use a basket of cherry tomatoes for this recipe.

Prepare those beds of fresh Baby Spinach on plates while you are cooking the main course. I like to use fresh spinach or a bed of lettuces for colorful presentation that is also nutritious.

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min

Cook time: 25 min

Ingredients

  • 10 to 12 Tomatoes, halfed
  • 2 Oz Tomato Basil Feta Cheese, crumbled
  • 2 Cups Fresh Spinach, for a bed

Recipe Instructions

  1. Add the Greek Feta Dressing to the pan and heat to bubbling and then add the Chicken Breasts and saute for about 10 minutes.
  2. While that's going, you can prepare your tomatoes by rinsing them off, removing stems and cutting them if you want to.
  3. Turn the chicken and sauté that side for about 8 minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes and roll them around a bit to flavor all sides. You'll just want to heat them through, rather than cook them. Heating through will take about 5 minutes.
  5. While the tomatoes are heating, sprinkle crumbled Tomato Basil Feta Cheese over the Chicken and Tomatoes.
  6. Serve on prepared plates of a bed of fresh Baby Spinach….and enjoy! You can split the 3 Chicken Breasts to make more servings if you want, particularly if you are serving other sides.

I love this Wok Style Fry Pans for cooking on the stove top, because of the high sides and much less spills and splatters. I only need to use medium low heat with this pans.

I only need to saute Chicken Breast for about 10 minutes and turn to sauté the other side about approximately 8 minutes more till done. Then, I add the prepared tomatoes, toss them around in the pan until they are heated through.

      Hi Susie,

      I have a marinated feta cheese in the house right now that we purchased at a farmer's market. I think that it would be excellent pairing it with your chicken recipe and the tomatoes. This would probably also be good with pork. Hope your new year is off to a good start!

      I love all of those ingredients but never thought of using feta cheese in a meal. I have only had it with a salad.

      I imagine that smells lovely when it cooking. Can't wait to try this.

      I love dishes like this where you create your own recipes. Feta cheese is so good and I have fresh basil still growing in our garden. We often have baby spinach on hand and of course tomatoes...so this should be an easy meal to create. It is so colorful and obviously nutritious. Thanks for sharing.
