All you need to do is sear the chicken with paprika and garlic while you bake the feta, it takes just 30 minutes to finish this meal.
INGREDIENTS FOR 4 SERVINGS.
1 lb. chicken breast
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 (6-8 oz) block quality feta cheese ( use vegan feta for dairy-free)
1/4 cup and 1 tbsp olive oil
2 cups cherry tomatoes
3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
Sea salt and pepper, to taste.
Preheat oven to 200 C.
Place the feta in a large cast-iron or baking dish and add the cherry tomatoes, drizzle with 1/4 cup olive and toss to coat.
Season with sea salt and pepper and bake for 30 minutes.
While baking the feta, prepare the chicken. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large pan/skillet over medium-high heat, season chicken breasts with paprika, garlic, sea salt and pepper to taste.
Place in the pan and fry for 8-10 minutes per side, or until golden and cooked through.
Remove the pan from the oven and mix the feta and tomatoes until creamy (as shown in the picture below).
Add minced garlic and basil, mix to incorporate. gently nestle the chicken breasts into the feta-tomato sauce and put the pan back to the oven, bake for another 5 minutes until golden and bubbly.
Serve immediately and enjoy with rice, quinoa or broccoli.
