Healthy Chicken of the Greek!

So this is an easy GO TO recipe I got out of a Weight Watchers Magazine awhile back. It's pretty darn good. Very healthy. Very low calorie. Very delicious, as always! Is your mouth watering from the looks of this picture yet?

-4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
-14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano, UNDRAINED
-1/4 cup pitted kalamatta olives, sliced (or black olives if you prefer!)
-1 T minced garlic
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup crumbled reduced fat feta cheese (I use ATHENOS)


1. Coat large skillet and chicken with cooking spray. Place chicken in the pan and cook on each side until well browned.

2. Reduce heat to medium; add tomatoes, olives, garlic, and pepper. Cover and cook 11 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove from heat and sprinkle with feta cheese.

3. Serve. I prefer to serve it over fresh pasta, but, you can do whatever you'd like!

I also whipped up some baked green beans which were SO delicious. If you want the recipe, you better post comments to get it :) ENJOY!!!
