Greek Chicken with Tomatoes, Peppers, Olives, Feta

From Celebrate! Healthy Entertaining for Any Occasion

Lemon, mint, and a garnish of crumbled feta cheese bring the flavors of Greece to this easy chicken dish. If fresh Roma tomatoes aren't available, canned tomatoes will provide the same cancer-fighting nutrients and vivid color.
