Chicken in Tomato Sauce with Olives and Feta
Recipe from My Yummy Life
4 chicken breast halves
1 28oz can Italian diced tomatoes, undrained
12-24 olives (personal preference as to amount and type)
2 tbsp olive oil, divided
12 oz pasta (spaghetti or vermicelli is best)
Preheat the oven to 425degrees. Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken breasts. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp of olive oil. Place two of the seasoned chicken breasts into the heated skillet and allow to brown on one side for 3-4 minutes. When the first side is golden, flip the chicken breasts and allow to brown on the other side. Set aside, and repeat with the remaining two chicken breasts. In a bowl combine the tomatoes, feta, and olives. Pour half of this mixture into an oven safe dish large enough to accommodate all of the ingredients.
Layer the browned chicken breasts on top of the first half of the tomato/olive/feta mixture and then cover them with the remaining half of the tomatoes/olives/feta.
Place the dish into the preheated oven and allow to bake until the chicken is done, about 50 minutes. About 20 minutes before the chicken is done boil water and prepare the pasta as directed, then drain. When the chicken has been removed from the oven, transfer the breasts to a separate plate and toss the pasta in with the tomatoes/olives/feta in the baking dish. Return the chicken breasts to the baking dish and garnish the whole shebang with feta. Serve, preferably family style.
