First, gather your ingredients. Mezzetta’s  Greek-Style Feta Cheese Stuffed Olives and Pitted Greek Kalamata Olives taste spectacular in this Yummy Greek Chicken. You’ll also need a good feta cheese. Try to find one that’s stored in brine, no dry feta cheese for this dish, please. Cherry tomatoes, red onion, garlic, oregano, olive oil, butter, and chicken breast, plus salt and pepper round out the ingredients you’ll need.

Next, flatten your chicken to a consistent thickness. To flatten, cover a cutting board with plastic wrap, place your chicken on top and cover with another sheet of plastic wrap. then pound lightly with the flat side of a mallet, until the thickness is uniform.

For my family of six, I used two chicken breasts and cut them into 6 pieces – bigger pieces for the bigger people. One way I keep my grocery budget down is to serve smaller meat portions. You can serve your guests an entire piece of chicken, if you’d like, and your kiddos smaller pieces.

Heat choice of fat in a pan over medium heat. I use half butter and half olive oil because I like the richness of the butter and the heart-healthy properties of the olive oil. Saute chopped onions and smashed garlic for several minutes, until garlic is golden and onions are translucent and fragrant.

    This looks delicious. I love how easy it is to make. Like you, I enjoy olives and feta cheese. In the summer months, we make a Greek flatbread loaded with both of those and a llittle pesto.

    Yes we DO love kalamata olive. I’ve never had them stuffed with cheese, but this recipe looks divine! One pot meals like this are so nice and cozy.
