I have another 17 day diet-approved recipe for you today, and it's one of my favorite meals so far: sundried tomato, basil, and feta-topped chicken. So delish!
It's barely even a recipe it's so easy. You'll need thin chicken breasts, olive oil, spices, sundried tomatoes, herbed fat-free feta, and fresh basil. I found these bagged sundried tomatoes at Trader Joe's and they're awesome! Just make sure the only ingredient is tomatoes. I used this President herbed fat-free feta cheese...but I can't wait to make this with real feta cheese in a few weeks :)
This recipe is basically my spiced chicken (made without butter) topped with a mixture of sundried tomatoes, feta, and chopped fresh basil. It involves a microwave. I told you... it's simple.
Here's how to make it:
For 2 servings
-2 chicken breasts
-2 tbsp olive oil
-Choice of spices (I used sea salt, course ground black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and dried basil)
-2 tbsp sundried tomatoes
-2 tbsp herbed feta cheese (fat free if following 17 day diet)
-1-2 tsp finely chopped fresh basil leaves
-Season both sides of raw chicken breasts liberally with choice of spices.
-Heat olive oil in a skillet or on a griddle over medium heat.
-Once hot, add chicken breasts and cook until browned and cooked through, about 6-7 mins/side.
-Remove chicken from heat, plate, and cover with foil for 5-10 minutes.
-Meanwhile, mix together sundried tomatoes, feta cheese, and basil in a bowl.
-Top each chicken breast with half of the tomato mixture, pressing gently. Cover the chicken breasts with a bowl or deep plate and microwave for 1 - 1.5 minutes, until cheese has melted slightly. Serve.
