(Dairy Free) Greek Chicken

Standard

 

I absolutely love Greek, Mediterranean food. I love Greek salads etc. I really try to avoid ALL dairy though. This chicken dish is one of those dishes that you crave, and can’t wait to cook again next week. What I love about this is that it is SUPER EASY to make. I am ALL for easy dishes that require very minimal maintenance. πŸ™‚ Organicville makes a sun-dried tomato and garlic dressing. I use this in my cooking ALL the time. It makes for a yummy dish!!! πŸ™‚photo

You might notice that I pretty much add garlic into every dish I make. According to an article in the Huffington Post,
“Some scientists believe the components in onions and garlic called allyl sulfides and bioflavonoids may be key to the research observations of generally lower incidence of cancer and heart disease in people who consume large amounts of garlic and onions, compared with those who eat less.” Garlic is an incredible detox and is so worth the stinky breath you might endure. πŸ™‚ PS: I switched to Neem toothpaste (you can buy on Amazon) and I never have garlic breath! Neem oil is proven to prevent bad breath and healthy gums. Anyways… on to our yummy dish….

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

2 organic chicken breasts, and some organic dark meat (optional-makes it juicier πŸ˜‰ (2-3 thighs)
1 1/2 cups of Sundried Tomato & Garlic by Organicville
12 chopped kalamata olives
1/4 tspn of chopped red pepper
2 FRESH garlic cloves chopped or minced
Dash of Salt and Pepper

Serve with butternut squash: you will need one squash.

Directions: 1. Butterfly your chicken breasts, or cut them right down the middle to make them thinner. 2. Pour the sundried tomato dressing over top of the chicken. 3. Add the chopped garlic and olives. 4. Sprinkle the crushed red pepper over top and a dash of salt and pepper.

In another pan, I place the butternut squash, face down in the oven. I remove the seeds before I cook. I also sprinkle salt and pepper over top of the squash, and spread a tiny layer of Earth Balance soy free butter over top.

Bake atΒ 400 for 25 minutes.

Voila! Easy Peasy dinner that will melt in your mouth!!
