Greek chicken bake January 10, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Food Recipes.

Sometimes all it takes to kick-start your dinner is a little help from your spice cabinet. Greek seasoning, a combination of dried onion, garlic, spearmint, oregano and salt, adds zing to simple chicken breasts.

In keeping with the Greek theme, the chicken is topped with fresh tomatoes and sprinkled with feta cheese and toasted pine nuts. If you are not a tomato fan, substitute chopped bell pepper. Round out the meal with a green salad topped with red wine vinaigrette and roasted potatoes.
