We love simple chicken recipes that not only taste great, but are made with healthy ingredients that align with our clean-eating diet plan. That’s why we love this Greek-inspired meal for Chicken with Feta and Tomatoes. It’s quick and easy to prepare and offers up enough flavor to satisfy. With just 8 ingredients, you can have one of the best chicken dishes we’ve come across in a while, perfectly portioned and loaded with taste, on the table in fewer than 30 minutes.
