This is a dish I love to make for company. It is quick to put together and delicious. The Feta cheese just makes it special.

Preparation time: 10 min
Cooking time: 25 min

Serves: 4


2 pounds chicken thighs with skin and bones
1 tablespoon olive oil

1 cup chopped onion
2 large garlic cloves, chopped
1 14 1/2-ounce can diced tomatoes in juice
3/4 cup Kalamata olives or other brine-cured black olives, pitted, sliced
1/2 cup dry red wine
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano or 2 teaspoons dried

2/3 cup crumbled feta cheese


1) Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sauté until brown, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to plate. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons drippings from skillet.

2) Add onion to drippings in skillet. Sauté over medium heat 3 minutes. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes with juices, olives, wine and oregano.

3) Return chicken and any accumulated juices to sauce; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until chicken is tender and cooked through, about 25 minutes.
