Easy Feta Chicken Bake

There are lots of recipes for chicken but unless they really appeal to me I seldom try everyone that may look good.  I have to get a real feel for the ingredients and this recipe hit all the good areas.


One it was easy steps.  Two it had feta cheese and  love feta so how could I go wrong.  Three it took about 45 minutes from start to finish that this meal was on the table.  You gotta like that!  Tasty, tender and just the right amount of feta to make it so flavorful and healthy red peppers to top made it crunchy too!  I served it with steamed asparagus and it was a perfect meal.  Enjoy!

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts( I filet them so they would cook faster)
2 T lemon juice divided(I used a fresh lemon)
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup diced red pepper
1/4cup diced fresh parsley

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Arrange chicken in 13x9 inch baking dish.

Drizzle with 1 T of lemon juice.  Season with salt and pepper. Top with feta cheese;drizzle with remaining lemon juice.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.  Sprinkle with red pepper and parsley.
