Chicken Breasts with Tomatoes, Caramelized Onions, and Feta Cheese

Chicken Breasts with Tomatoes, Caramelized Onions, and Feta Cheese

The MRI went well today and I look forward to hearing what is going on with my back and what steps I need to take to heal and be pain-free. Since I am not able to cook new recipes right now I decided to re-visit some of my old favorites.  I hope to be back to cooking and photographing new recipes soon!

I love the combination of flavors and textures in this dish… the tomatoes and caramelized onions are sweet while the feta is a bit salty and they taste terrific over chicken. Topping the whole dish off with a bit of balsamic vinegar just completes it perfectly. This healthy and delicious recipe was a big hit with my entire family. This chicken paired nicely with the Roasted Asparagus with Browned Butter, Soy, and Balsamic Sauce.

How to Make Chicken Breasts with Tomatoes, Caramelized Onions, and Feta Cheese

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions then saute, stirring often, until golden brown and caramelized – about 15-20 minutes. Season with sea salt, to taste

In a large grill pan, heat the other tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat and season the chicken breasts with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and garlic powder, to taste. Make sure the pan is nice and hot before adding the chicken. Cook for 5-6 minutes before turning over. Cook for additional 3-4 minutes to the desired degree of doneness. Remove from heat to a serving platter. Make sure to let the chicken rest for 3-5 minutes before slicing so it stays nice and juicy. Slice into thin strips at an angle once it has rested.

In the same skillet as the onions, add the grape tomatoes then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the tomatoes are soft. Add the caramelized onions and minced garlic, stirring frequently for 60 seconds. Pour the tomatoes and onions on top of the sliced chicken, drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Top with feta cheese and fresh basil. Enjoy!

  10. Just stopping by to say “hi”, Pam. I hope you are back to your usual routine very soon. I don’t think I’ve told you that I won’t be working at the farmer’s market this coming summer. We have to get together for coffee one of these days.

  11. OMG this was great, really liked it, slightly changed the preparation and diced the tomatoes, also I did not use any basil. Best ever and will make it again for sure.

  12. Hope you get answers soon and that your pain can be eliminated. Your chicken looks delicious and reminds me of summer and fresh tomatoes from the garden.

  13. don’t you hate the waiting?
    ugh.
    whatever the outcome good or bad, don’t let it be the final say; remember back pain can be healed/managed with yoga, acupuncture, swimming, etc…
    i’ve done a lot of get mine to be better than what it used to be, and it used to be bad. I refuse to let a doctor give me a final judgement. (unless of course it’s life threatening!)
    stay positive!
    think positive!

  14. Oh my goodness.. this looks beautiful and I’m sure tastes delicious… I think it might be tomorrow’s dinner since I actually have feta in the fridge and tomatoes! I can’t wait to try it!
