To make this quick one pan Greek Chicken recipe, simply saute a delicious organic chicken breast in olive oil and butter, top with olives, tomatoes, and feta cheese! Viola!

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.

Easy Pizzadilla Recipe – Kid Friendly Dinner on the Double

Easy Pizzadilla Recipe - Kid Friendly Dinner on the Double - another one of my go-to meals - can be on the table in about 15 minutes! from SimpilfyLiveLove.com

I do 99% of the cooking in our family. And the grocery shopping, and the planning, and the cleaning, etc. If it deals with food, it’s my decision. However, when my husband and I first married waaaay back in 1997 {I was a reeeeaaaallllllllly young bride, LOL!} , he had one homemade meal in his cooking lineup – the pizzadilla. He made it for me a few times when we first married, and then I kind of forgot about it. But after we had kids, his easy pizzadilla recipe made a comeback and not only is it a huge hit with the kids, it’s also a great go-to recipe for busy nights. It’s easy to get on the table in about 15 minutes, if you keep a stocked pantry!!
