Athenian Chicken

Here is another easy, yet delicious chicken breast recipe. This is an easy one to prepare on a weeknight. If you can prepare the chicken in the marinade the night before, that will save you some time the night you want to cook it.


  • 3 chicken breasts (I cut mine in half and pound thinner)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. dry Italian dressing seasoning
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • Oregano
An important thing to know if youre trying to eat healthy is appropriate serving sizes. A serving of meat should be 3 oz. when you buy chicken breasts they are much larger than 3 oz., so you really should cut them in half before cooking. I cut in half them place between wax paper and pound a little to make them thinner.  

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Salt and pepper the chicken breasts. Place in a bag with Italian dressing seasoning and lemon juice. Shake around to make sure each breast is coated. Marinate for at least 30 minutes. 

Place chicken breasts in a deep baking dish. Pour marinade over chicken.msprinkle with oregano and put a small pat of butter on each breast. Cover with foil and bake for 30-40 minutes (longer for chicken not pounded thin). Remove foil. Sprinkle with feta and Parmesan. Turn oven to broil and cook another 3-4 minutes.

We served with green beans and Henderson Hummus (Updated Version). Yum!
