Cook Time 35minutes

Total Time 45minutes

Servings 2

Calories 282


1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon dried oregano

Pinch crushed red pepper flakes

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves

1/2 cup roasted mini peppers drained, plus some of the garlic cloves

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes

1/4 cup pitted and halved Kalamata olives

1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Chopped fresh parsley


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, crushed red pepper flakes, and salt and black pepper in the bottom of a baking dish.

Place the chicken breasts in the baking dish, then turn to coat so they’re nicely coated with the oil/lemon juice/herb combination.

Place the roasted peppers, garlic from the peppers, cherry tomatoes and olives around the chicken breasts.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees in the center of each breast.

Sprinkle with feta cheese and parsley. Serve immediately.


I used my roasted mini peppers and the garlic from the jar. However, you don’t need to make them first if you don’t want to. You can use a good brand of roasted red bell peppers from a jar. Add a few halved fresh garlic cloves.

MAKE AHEAD: You can prep it 24 hours in advance and refrigerate. (I don’t recommend baking it ahead of time and then reheating it because it will take about the same amount of time to reheat as it would to bake through.) Let it sit at room temperature while the oven preheats. You may need to add additional baking time because it will still be cold from the refrigerator.
