Delicious Baked Feta Chicken.
INGREDIENTS FOR 4 SERVINGS.
1 lb. chicken breast
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 (6-8 oz) block of quality feta cheese ( use vegan feta for dairy-free)
1/4 cup and 1 tbsp olive oil
2 cups cherry tomatoes
3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
Sea salt and pepper, to taste.
Preheat the oven to 200 C.
Place the feta in a large cast-iron or baking dish and add the cherry tomatoes, drizzle with 1/4 cup olive and toss to coat.
Season with sea salt and pepper and bake for 30 minutes.
While baking the feta, prepare the chicken. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large pan/skillet over medium-high heat, and season chicken breasts with paprika, garlic, sea salt, and pepper to taste.
Place in the pan and fry for 8-10 minutes per side, or until golden and cooked through.
Remove the pan from the oven and mix the feta and tomatoes until creamy (as shown in the picture below).
