Feta and Tomato Topped Chicken

This is one of my favorite “easy” recipes for a busy night.  A short ingredient list is always nice too! 😉

feta and tomato topped chicken

Here’s what you need:

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

2 T balsamic vinaigrette dressing

1 t Italian seasoning

1 tomato cut into 8 slices

1/4 c crumbled feta cheese

Now I substituted lemon pepper seasoning for the Italian seasoning because it’s what I had on hand.  I also used a little more feta cheese than the recipe called for because gosh darn it, I love cheese!! 

And I don’t always measure things but use the measurements as a guideline or a suggestion if you will.  Much like the speed limit on the highway…but that’s another story….haha!!

Here’s what you do:

1.  Heat the oven to 350.  The recipe said to brush both sides of the chicken with dressing but with my bottle you could squirt it out so that’s what I did.  I figured less mess that way.  Sprinkle both sides with the seasoning and place in baking dish. 

2.  Bake for about 22 minutes on one side and turn over.  Bake for an additional 17 minutes and then top with tomato and cheese.  Bake for an additional 5 minutes.

I served it with dinner rolls and a pre-made lettuce and spinach side salad and added cucumbers and carrots.  Super easy and definitely a go-to recipe in my recipe box!

Stay awesome and enjoy!  ~lisa
