This Greek-inspired, quick and easy Baked Feta & Chicken Recipe is packed with flavor. A small amount of rich feta cheese over lean chicken adds a big punch of flavor without adding a ton of calories and fat.
Summertime demands Mediterranean food. Not that winter diminishes my feta cravings.
Remember this baked feta recipe inspired by our Greek honeymoon? Our obsession with the glory that is warm feta hasn’t lessened. Today I have a SUPER easy Baked Feta & Chicken recipe for you.
If you have 10 minutes, you have time to make this Greek-inspired dish. The ingredient list is short (shocking, right?), but it doesn’t skimp on flavor.
Because feta is such a rich, salty cheese, you don’t have to use a ton of it. A small amount over lean, low-fat chicken breasts adds a big punch of flavor without adding a ton of calories and fat.
I also love how the oregano and lemon juice compliments the cheese. It lightens up the flavor and adds to the Mediterranean feel. Perfect for summer!

Breakfast was a delicious creation – kabocha topped with an egg+ 2 egg whites, salsa, avocado, and bacon “sprinkles.”
I’ve been loving my quickie turkey salads lately. It’s just no-salt deli turkey ripped up and tossed with whatever veggies I have on hand. The dressing is my favorite part – an equal mix of garlic hummus and salsa.
I’ve been taking it to baseball games too (check out Instagram). Yes, you can bring food to stadiums!
Errrrr… I failed at a picture. But I made the below smoothie bowl again. It’s been our summer staple for a few weeks now!
Crazy busy day! We finally got to the gym and this recovery bowl was scarfed down shortly after! It was @growingnaturals vanilla rice protein, cocoa powder, gelatin, frozen cherries, spinach, ginger, and cinnamon blended with ice and a littler water. Topped with chia seeds. All of these things are great to help with recovery and inflammation after a hard workout! Vegas even LIKED it!

Have you had baked feta before? It’s also one of my favorite pizza toppings.
