In 2009, I went to Israel. Without typing a whole blog of endless reasons I loved that country, I’ll just say this.
Please go there someday.
Additionally, it was then the rich Mediterranean cuisine became my favorite.
Hummus (the best on the planet) and fresh olives of every kind, were served even at breakfast! I loved it:)
Here’s my Mediterranean Chicken recipe. I hope you enjoy it!
4 chicken breast, thawed
1/8 c. olive oil
1/4 c. Italian Dressing
approx. 25 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 c. kalamata olives, chopped
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
2/3 c. feta cheese, crumbled
Place your chicken in the baking dish, topped with olives and tomatoes. Pour Italian Dressing over that whole thing.
Bake at 350 degrees, for 50-60 minutes.
(I covered it with foil for just half the time, so the chicken stays moist with the juices. Double check the “doneness” of your thickest chicken breast before serving)
Sprinkle parsley on top, and serve with your favorite side dish. Brussel sprouts is a fav here:)
Happy LOVE day, friends!
