Michelle, get this winner of a recipe out of your "must try" file and onto your dinner table! I did do it a little different--I cut up boneless and skinless chicken breasts into chunks. The dish looked as good as it tasted. YUM!

An excellent recipe! The sauce is bursting with flavor, thanks to the oregano and feta cheese. The chicken was tender, and the dish looked as beautiful as it tasted. I served it over orzo, as suggested, and we had a lovely Greek-style dish. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.
