Grilled Chicken & Red Onion with Feta

As you know, i'm always looking for new ways to bring life to a boneless, skinless chicken breast.  This dish brings together earthy, herb marinated chicken, with sweet onions and a tangy kick of feta.

This chicken stands well on its own, but would also be great wrapped up in a pita.

Ingredients (serves 2):
* 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
* 1/4 c. chopped herbs (I used basil, rosemary and thyme)
* 1/4 c. olive oil, plus 2 tbsp (divided)
* 1/2 red onion, chopped
* 1/4 c. feta cheese
* salt, pepper to taste

Finely chop the herbs and combine with 1/4 c. of the olive oil. Drizzle over chicken, season with salt and pepper, and marinate for an hour or so.  Drizzle the remaining 2 tbsp. olive oil over the chopped onions.  Preheat the grill to medium high heat and add the chicken.  Add the onions to a grill wok and grill until soft.  Continue cooking the chicken (about 5-7 minutes per side), until cooked through.  Top with onions and feta.  Enjoy!

  1. Yum!! I can't wait to try this. I always love a new twist on chicken breasts since we eat at least 6 of them every week!
