Prep and cook time: 30 min. Servings: 2

Gluten Free Meat Free

Ingredients

  • 2 3-oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2 t. olive oil
  • 1 med. lemon, halved
  • 1 t. dried oregano
  • 1 small (about 4 oz.) potato, cut into 1-in. pieces
  • 2 med. carrots, cut into 1-in. pieces
  • 1 med. onion, cut into 1-in. pieces
  • 1 med. (about 6 oz.) tomato, cut into 1-in. pieces
  • 3 c. shredded kale
  • 2 oz. feta cheese, crumbled

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 400ºF. Put a large, heavy skillet over high heat. Dry the chicken well with paper towels. When the pan is very hot, drizzle in the olive oil and add the chicken, halved lemons, oregano, potato, carrots and onion to the pan. Let them cook for about 4 min. on the stovetop, and then put the pan into the oven.
  2. When the chicken is cooked, about 4 more min., remove it and the lemons from the pan and let the meat rest. Add the tomato, kale and feta to the pan. Stir and return the pan to the oven for another 10 min., until the vegetables are cooked through. Serve the chicken over the vegetables and squeeze the juice from the roasted lemons over the top.
