This lightly breaded, moist and tender chicken is cooked to perfection, topped with a Italian-seasoned, red pepper puree and sprinkled with a touch of feta cheese. Excellent!

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 jars (7 ounces each) roasted sweet red peppers, drained
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Directions

  1. In a shallow bowl, lightly beat the egg. In another shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs and salt. Dip chicken in egg, then coat with crumbs.
  2. In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°.
  3. Meanwhile, in a blender, combine the red peppers and Italian seasoning; cover and process until pureed.
  4. Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high for 1-2 minutes or until heated through, stirring once. Spoon over chicken; sprinkle with feta cheese.
