I Made My Lemon Feta Chicken On The 700 Club
When I recently appeared on The 700 Club, this was one of the recipes I prepared. Wendy raved and raved about the flavor and how moist the chicken was. She said, “what could be bad with lemon, feta and chicken?” She doesn’t cook much but said she couldn’t wait to go home and prepare this recipe. Pop the dish in the oven and dinner is done!

No worries about marinade with this recipe, with lemon juice, oregano and feta, this healthy diabetic friendly baked recipe comes together quickly. You can use fresh lemon juice but I always keep lemon juice in my refrigerator which works fine. My favorite lemon juice is Minute Maid Premium Lemon Juice that you find in the freezer section of the grocery.
