Bruschetta Chicken

This is what I made for supper last night.  It was delicious, and the best part is that I didn't even follow an exact recipe.  I know.  :)  Go me.

Here's the recipe, written by me:
red onion
feta cheese
salt & pepper
chicken breast

Chop up tomato, onion, and feta cheese.  Yes, chop the feta cheese.  Good quality feta cheese comes in blocks and must be chopped to get the crumbly texture.  Mix in a small bowl.  Add some salt & pepper and about a pinch of basil.  You might need more basil depending on how much tomato you've chopped.  I only used about a quarter of a really large one, so a pinch was perfect.  Fresh basil is always better than dried, and then you'd also need more than just a pinch.

Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan, preferably one with a lid.  Add chicken to pan and and cook on medium heat, 3-5 minutes per side depending on how thick your chicken breasts are.  I only did 3 minutes, but it wasn't long enough.  After you've flipped to the second side, turn off the heat and pour the tomato mixture over the chicken.  Put the lid back on the pan and let it sit on the the stove for about two minutes.

At this point, my chicken wasn't quite done, so I tossed them into my toaster oven for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees.  They came out perfectly, and it was absolutely delicious.

(And yes, we had Sidekicks with it.  I needed to make something that the kids would eat.)
