Mediterranean Feta Lemon Chicken Recipe

Mediterranean Feta Lemon Chicken Recipe

This Mediterranean Feta & Lemon Chicken is packed full of flavor and it’s all to do with the lovely marinade that it sits in for just thirty minutes. Only good, clean, and fresh ingredients go into it too. I don’t know about anyone else, but I can’t say no to a good feta cheese dish anyway and this chicken is just about as good as it gets.


Being as the ingredients here are super simple, there isn’t a whole lot to do here to lighten this up other than by using a fat free cheese, which is exactly what i did. I also used boneless skinless chicken breast and it was fantastic.
