Any recipe with chicken as the main ingredient and requiring less than 15 minutes of hands-on preparation is my kind of recipe. DISCLAIMER: this recipe does require 2 hours of marinating the chicken, 6-10 minutes of searing the chicken in a skillet, and 30 minutes baking in the oven. To solve this what may seem like a daunting time in the kitchen, I marinated the chicken the night before (took 5 minutes) and then seared and baked the chicken the next night for dinner. Hands down this is probably my all-time favorite chicken recipe I have made at home. I usually am not a huge fan of feta cheese but I was scraping it out of the dish it was so delicious. Something about the feta and lemon together made the chicken very tender and juicy and totally appetizing! All in all this recipe was a huge hit at our house and will definitely be making monthly appearances! Enjoy!
