Mediterranean Skillet Chicken

Mediteranean chicken with lemon, feta, tomato, and cucumbers

I love the fresh flavors of summer. My Mediterranean skillet chicken dish is easy, fresh, and satisfying. It has me wishing I was back in Santorini  eating a good meal from the locals. This dish will have to fulfill my cravings for a good Greek meal for now.

If you have a grill, prepare the chicken there (apartment living = no yard and no grill). I have to settle for the skillet because there is no way I’m turning on the oven in this heat. Cherry tomatoes, cucumber, mint, red onion, feta, and a little lemon zest seasoned with salt and pepper is all you need for an amazing dish.
