greek tacos {and the giveaway winner!}



2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

1 red onion, chopped

8 ounce block feta {I used fat free}

8 ounces cream cheese {low fat}, softened

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

3 tablespoons oregano

4 tablespoons lemon juice

Salt and pepper

Olive oil

Flour tortillas

Basil, for garnish if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat 3-4 tablespoons olive oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat. Season each side of the chicken with lemon juice, oregano, salt and pepper {I used about 1 tablespoon of both oregano and lemon juice on each chicken breast - but it's up to you how much oregano you like...it's strong!}. Cook chicken for about 5-6 minutes on each side until golden brown {my chicken was pretty thin, so just make sure each side is brown if your chicken is thicker!}. Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine 3/4 of the block of feta, cream cheese, Greek yogurt and salt and pepper to taste. Blend until incorporated. While the food processor is running, add about 1 tablespoon lemon juice; blend until smooth. Once chicken is cooked, cut into bite sized pieces. Wrap desired number of tortillas in foil and place on baking sheet in oven for about 5 minutes, or until warm. To assemble tacos, place about 1 tablespoon feta cream mixture on the bottom, followed by chicken, tomatoes and red onion. Garnish with basil and serve.

Happy Friday! Sharing this quick and fun take on tacos today. I don't cook meat that often in our house {I like to say I'm a vegetarian except for steak and turkey sandwiches ;) } but my husband loves chicken, so every once in a while, I try to incorporate chicken into our weekly menu. And this was a great and simple chicken recipe for any weeknight dinner! You could also add a cucumber or spinach to this {I just didn't have either in the refrigerator!} for some added color.

Last week, A Blonde's Moment celebrated it's first birthday {you can see the post on that here}. To celebrate a year of blogging fun, I am giving away a fabulous J.Crew statement necklace. The giveaway closed last night at midnight and I'm excited to announce the winner...

Congratulations, Jackie! Email me at rachel@ablondesmoment.com :)

Thank you so much to all who entered!! Have a wonderful weekend!
