Two People Told Me Today Lemon Feta Chicken was their Favorite Baked Chicken Breast Recipe
Lemon Feta Chicken with only 5 ingredients and tons of flavor seems to be the talk of the town. This baked chicken recipe is from Eating Well to Fight Arthritis cookbook. I thought about sharing this simple chicken recipe, Lemon Feta Chicken, on my healthy food blog because I had two different people tell me in one day that was their favorite easy chicken dinner recipe. Are you in a dinner rut and tired of plain baked chicken breast recipes? Crazy as it seems, I am always testing recipe and sometimes forget about some of my favorite quick easy chicken recipes. One person said her husband always requests Lemon Feta Chicken and because there are few ingredients, this is one of her favorite go-to baked chicken breast recipes also. This recipe is also one of the best diabetic baked chicken recipes

No worries about marinade with this recipe. With lemon juice, oregano and feta, this recipe comes together so 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 in the grocery.
A simple aide is my One Dish Mac and Cheese recipe. You put all the ingredients into one dish, pop in the oven and bake. These are two simple outstanding recipes.
