Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
2 to 3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Place chicken in a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Pour lemon juice over chicken; sprinkle with feta cheese, oregano and pepper.

Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.

Tips and Tricks
Precrumbled feta will save time. Block feta is cheaper. Feta also freezes well, so I always buy the larger package and freeze what I don't use.
