Description

Need something easy for dinner tonight? Just throw all of these ingredients for Baked Greek Chicken into an oven-safe dish, throw it into the oven and pour yourself a glass of wine.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Red Onions, Peeled And Cut Into Thick Slices
  • ⅓ cups Whole, Pitted Kalamata Olives
  • 3 whole Large Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Greek Seasoning (or Substitute Oregano)
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Peeled
  • ½ cups Prepared (store Bought Or Your Favorite Recipe) Hummus
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 pint Cherry Or Grape Tomatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
  • ¼ cups Crumbled Feta, For Topping
  • Optional: Spinach And Pita Bread For Serving

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 450 F.

2. Zest the lemon. Place zest in a large bowl and add the olive oil. Add the red onion slices and kalamata olives and toss to coat. Place onions and olives in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish.

3. Cut the chicken breasts into tenders (slice them parallel to your work service, then cut each half into 3 pieces. Season the tenders with salt, pepper and Greek seasoning (if using) then place them on top of the bed of onions and olives. Tuck the peeled garlic cloves under the chicken to keep them from burning.

4. Spread the hummus evenly over the top of the chicken breasts. Squeeze the juice out of the zested lemon over the top of the chicken and onions. Sprinkle the paprika over the top. Go ahead and throw the zested and squeezed lemon rinds into the pan as well.

5. Bake uncovered for 15 minutes. Remove dish from the oven. Add the tomatoes to the perimeter of the pan, then drizzle the balsamic vinegar over the top of the tomatoes. Return dish to the oven for another 15-20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

6. Serve on a bed of spinach, topped with feta cheese and with extra lemon wedges for squeezing. Optional accompaniments: roasted red peppers, pepperocini peppers, pita bread with hummus, or cucumbers.
