Chicken with Feta Cheese Sauce

Winner, Winner Chicken dinner courtesy of Pinterest.  I pinned this recipe a few weeks ago because it looked simple and quick.  You can find the original recipe at Garnish with Lemon.

3 or 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
1 tbs unsalted butter
1 tbs flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup feta cheese, I used Sundried Tomato and Basil

Preheat oven to 375.

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and drizzle with light olive oil.  Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper.  Go lightly on the salt.

Brown chicken on both sides and place in a small baking dish.  Bake at 375 until cooked through.

Meanwhile in the same skillet melt the butter and whisk in the flour to make a roux.  Gradually ad the milk whisking constantly.  Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for about 5 minutes until the sauce is thick.  Stir/whisk occassionally.

Add the feta and whisk until the cheese is all melted.

Spoon sauce over chicken and serve with sides.  Tonight I served it with peas, salad with the extra feta and rice pilaf.

I think the flavored feta worked fantastic in this dish!!
