After a week off, I am excited to announce this weeks Tuesday Cook Off. This dish was super easy and my family just loved it. Now of course you have to be a fan of feta cheese and olives to enjoy this dish. The chicken breasts are roasted in lemon juice, keeping the chicken super moist and flavorful. If you have a busy week night, this dish comes together in less than an hour. I promise it will be a favorite. I served the Greek Salsa Chicken with Garlic and Herb Roasted Potatoes. The boys just loved them!! My youngest even had seconds!!
Here are the recipes:
