Tomato and Mushroom Chicken

I wish I could say that each recipe I come up with is something new and exciting. That I constantly experiment with new flavors and ingredients. That’s not the case. The majority of the recipes that I make have the same ingredients – I really am a creature of habit. My recipes are predictable. Basil. Tomatoes. Mushrooms. Olive oil. Cheese. Ninety percent of my meals contain one or all of those ingredients.

Naturally, when I decided I wanted to make chicken, I used all of those ingredients. Tomato and Mushroom Chicken.

Verdict: 

The tomatoes and mushrooms gave the chicken a really great flavor. Mozzarella or goat cheese probably would have been a better cheese to use as feta doesn’t really melt. Despite the fact the feta hardened, the meal was delicious. Definitely a recipe I want to build on!
