Feta and Sun-Dried Tomato One-Pot Chicken

May 26, 2015

Feta and Sun-Dried Tomato One-Pot Chicken is made with juicy chicken tenderloins pan seared with aromatics, herbs and sun-dried tomatoes and topped with melty feta cheese all cooked in one pot in under 30 minutes. Feta and Sun Dried Tomato One Pot Chicken /

ONE perfect little bite in ONE perfect little pot. I love these kinds of meals as life has just been plain old BUSY. I want bold flavors without any fuss.

You are just going to love this feta and sun-dried tomato one-pot chicken as it really brings together very simply all the Mediterranean flavors without any effort at all. Sweet sun-dried tomatoes, caramelised onions and basil give the dish its gentle sweetness and bold zest of the creamy feta cheese is a nice contrast.

I made the whole dish from start to finish in my iron skillet so clean up was a snap. I really love my iron skillet as it can be used in so many ways from searing meats to slow cooked dishes and it is especially helpful for dishes that go from stove top to oven. On many occasions I have used my iron skillet as a door stop and  in self defence to keep away unwanted guests. LOL just kidding. Now really though it is quite heavy and I think if you wanted to you could really do some damage... if you dropped it on your toes. Ouch!

Do you have an iron skillet? If not, no worries you can use an oven proof dish, pan or shallow Dutch oven.

We certainly eat a lot of chicken and fish in our home so I am always experimenting with different recipes. You could make this dish with chicken thighs, breasts or drumsticks but you will have to increase the cooking time. We use a lot of chicken tenderloins as they cook up fast and also I can buy organic imported ones as I prefer not to rely on the local markets in Hong Kong for chicken...

In order to keep this meal low carb and diabetic friendly, I decided to serve my Feta and Sun-Dried Tomato One-Pot Chicken on a bed of sautéed garlic spinach and a nice crisp iceberg wedge salad with a creamy dressing. This recipe is also happily gluten-free. I love sun-dried tomatoes as they perfectly sweet and can be used in some many dishes that it is a nice pantry item to have on hand to throw into pasta, stews and even our Flame Kissed Tomato Pesto Tapas.

As I am typing this up, I am getting ready to call my dad to wish him a happy 91st Birthday. I have never met a more caring person. If you ever have a chance to meet him, you would hit it off, just like that. He is charismatic and enjoys people and at 91 years of age he is still full of life.

My dad can also be pretty spunky at times. A couple of years ago, I came home from Hong Kong on a trip and my dad needed to run some errands so I hopped in the car and offered to be his chauffeur for the day.

As you know, we have the driver's seats on the right side of the car and drive on the left side of the road here in Hong Kong. In the US, we have our drivers seat on the left hand side of the car and drive on the right hand side of the road. Detail! Details! In the US, I made a left hand turn and moved into the left hand lane just like we would do in HK... Yes going 40 miles per hour against traffic in the wrong direction (before I quickly got back into the correct lane) and my dad yells at me if you ever do that again, I am going to beat you with my cane. LOL... Loving but not to be reckoned with! Love him to pieces!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!

Feta and Sun-Dried Tomato One-Pot Chicken

By HWC Magazine  , , , , ,

May 26, 2015

Juicy chicken tenderloins pan seared with aromatics, herbs and sun-dried tomatoes and topped with melty feta cheese all cooked in one pot in under 30 minutes.

  • Cook: 30 mins


sun dried tomatoes - 1 cup (soaked in warm water to soften)

olive oil - 1 tablespoon

onions - 1 small (1/2 cup chopped)

chicken tenderloins - 8-10 (2 per adult and 3 per hungry teenager)

salt and pepper - to taste (remember the feta is salty so delicate on the salt)

paprika - 1 teaspoon

white wine - 3/4 cup (or can use tomato water from softening sun-dried tomatoes)

feta cheese - 7 ounces (200 grams)

basil - 2 tablespoons fresh roughly chopped (1 teaspoon dried)


1Preheat oven to 190 degree Celsius or 375 F.

2Place your sun dried tomatoes in a heat proof small bowl and cover with warm water to soften for about 20-30 minutes. (You can reserve the tomato water as it has lots of vitamins and minerals. If you desire, you can replace the tomato water for the white wine in this recipe to deglaze your pan.)

3In your iron skillet (oven proof pan or Dutch oven) add your olive oil, onions and garlic and fry until aromatic and softened and starting to caramelize. Add salt, pepper and paprika to your chicken on both sides and add to the skillet. Sear the chicken gently on each sides just to make golden brown.

4Chop up your softened sun dried tomatoes and add to the chicken, add your wine to deglaze the pan. Sprinkle your chicken with crumbled feta cheese and bake for about 10-12 minutes just until the chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear and the feta cheese is nice and melty.

5Serve your Feta and Sun-Dried Tomato One-Pot Chicken tenderloins over sautéed garlic spinach and garnish with basil. Enjoy!

  • This looks just excellent – and I have all the ingredients in the house – thanks for making one of my nights easy for dinner!!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hello Dawn, so glad I could help out. We all need a list of delightful 30 minutes or less meals to get us through the work week.

  • Hahaha…. if you ever do that again I am going to beat you with my cane. LOL! Really made me LOL! 🙂

    I do get bored with the same old chicken recipes (I shouldn’t, especially as I come across many new recipes each week, but so many of them are over the top and not really week night feeds), very much looking forward to having a crack at ALL of yours, relatively simple and crazy delicious too.

    Hope you have a wonderful week ahead lovely lady. Hugs from the land down under. 🙂

    • Bams Kitchen

      Anna, I am so glad I could put a little chuckle in your day as you know laughter is the best medicine. I am trying to fight the chicken recipe rut too so hopefully I will have many more quick and easy meals to keep you inspired.

  • Eha

    First things first!! ‘HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU’ loving Dad . . . .hope you can hear me across the Pacific!! Once you post you never fail, do you Bobbi!! This looks absolutely delicious especially since I basically cook chicken and fish also!! Am about to go make squid for lunch but would prefer your chicken which is by now down for the weekend! It does look ‘grab from the screen’ delicious!!!! OK: am a semi-rural Oz inhabitant! We always had whole chickens, legs, Marylands, wings, thighs every which way and breasts . . . went to the supermarket a few days back and found ‘tenderloins’ . . .perhaps just my neck of the woods but wondered whether food blogs had had a bit to do with that!!!!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Eha, I will pass on your well wishes to my dad. Thanks for your kind comment. We seem to cook loads of chicken and fish too! I am always experimenting in the kitchen with different flavors. Have you ever been in a chicken recipe rut? I think my cause of my chicken recipe rut is because of the markets here. I also prefer chicken with the bone as I feel it has more flavor but have difficulty finding chicken that is “safe” and does not cost a million dollars here in HK. 🙁 Chicken tenderloins or boneless skinless breasts from US or from the land of OZ seem to be the best option for me and I can find in our nearest market, so that’s a good thing. Tenderloins also cook up very quickly and that is a very good thing. I want to be able to find an online butcher store in HK that that delivers from Australia or US that I can trust -still searching. In the meantime, I will be cranking new ways to cook up those tenderloins… LOL Wishing you a super week.

  • kitchenriffs

    Happy Birthday to your Dad! Funny story about driving, although you could have had a bit of trouble if you hadn’t corrected yourself so quickly! Anyway, I love a got one pot dish. This looks terrific — thanks.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you John, I will pass your kind B-day wishes to my dad. I think the driving mix up happens to so many people when they drive in many different countries, it takes just a second to get yourself in the correct mind set. No worries, all was well. I agree a one pot dish with minimal clean up is just what you need on those busy days.

  • I love this chicken and scrolling through the recipe and beyond and I saw the chicken fajita sliders and my heart started beating faster. I want both these dishes today.

    Happy Birthday to your father. I know you wish you were with him today. xx

    • Bams Kitchen

      Oh how I wish I could be with my dad today and he would have loved your carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.

      I think you will really like the chicken fajitas sliders even if you just serve them on a bun or even in a tortilla. The chicken is super fall apart tender with great tex mex flavors. Have a super week!

  • I love all these ingredients–it sounds like a wonderful dish! And congratulations to your dad on his 91st birthday!

    • Bams Kitchen

      91 years! I know that each day I am able to still talk to my parents is a blessing. Thank goodness to Voice over internet we can still talk most days on the phone, even though we are 6000 miles apart.

  • Birthday blessings for your dad. Hope he celebrated in style. I was talking yesterday about feta and sun dried tomato as a flavour combination 🙂

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thanks for the dad B-Day wishes Tandy! There are loads of pasta dishes with sun-dried tomatoes and cheeses but someone, wink wink…cannot eat pasta. I thought this was a great alternative and its also low carb. I could also keep the cheese sprinkles off of my chicken tender and it was still delicious with all of those delightful caramelized onions and sun-dried tomatoes. I did not even miss the cheese.

  • One the reasons my husband and I have not been in Australia or New Zealand is the that they drive on the wrong side as far as we are concerned. We tried it once in England and failed miserably. Your chicken with feta and sun dried tomatoes looks delicious.Happy Birthday yo your dad.

    • Eha

      YES, YOU CAN!! Actually we are ‘quite polite!’ You might get a few ‘honks’ followed by smiles and ‘helps’ !!! How do you think we Aussies feel going to Europe and having to drive on ‘the wrong side of the road there’ !!!! See ??? We manage: please try!! We don’t have half as many drivers on our roads and we would [mostly] be quite courteous !!!!!

    • Bams Kitchen

      You have to have sort of a mind set change when you get in the drivers seat. My husband is amazing and can change from country to country and from side to side without a slight hesitation while driving. I think I best stick with cooking! LOL Passing on your birthday wishes to my dad, thanks.

  • You don’t expect from me to challenge you on this dish, do you? Feta, sun dried tomatoes and chicken are the perfect combo and I use it very often myself! Delicious, pinned and shared of course!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Katerina! Our family just loves your guest post with chicken, chestnuts and mushrooms and are just waiting for chestnuts to be back in season. I can’t wait to try your recipe for your pita flat breads…Yum!

  • Lol, I love many uses of your skillet! As for the dish…what can I say that I haven’t already said about your creations? Superb! Easy dishes are everyone’s favorite. Pinning!

    • Bams Kitchen

      I have more than one iron skillet. If I am using one as a door stop and the other one in self defense, you need to have one clean pan for cooking. After all, we are about keeping life easy, right…! Have a super week.

  • Happy birthday to your dad! He sounds wonderful. And this chicken dish looks wonderful. I always love new chicken recipes, and you’ve given me quite a few! Yum!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thanks you Kristy. I seem to have quite a few chicken recipes and more on the way. We do eat loads of fish and chicken at our home so I am always experimenting with different flavor combinations. Are you guys ready for summer?

  • I love everything about this! Yuuuuum. 🙂

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Tina.

  • Looks fabulous! Sometimes you need a good chicken dish to remind you how amazing chicken can taste! : ) I am also going to use sun dried tomatoes more often, too. : ) And happy birthday to your awesome dad!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Monica. Chicken needs some bold flavors to really brighten it up and sun dried tomatoes works perfectly as they are naturally sweet and delicious. We are blessed to have my dad here with us 91 years. Miss him like crazy!

  • Wow! Happy 91st birthday to your amazing father! Oh driving in Israel is like driving in US, totally different from what I’m used to in Singapore, was scolded by my husband a few times because I couldn’t keep in lane haha! I’m still lacking an iron skillet at home, hoping to see some sale so I can grab one and make this. One-pot dishes are the best!

  • Mira

    Love the flavors, look so delicious Bobbi! After trying your mushroom chicken, (and I’ve made it a few times, since then) it is time to try this one pot chicken! Pinned!

  • Happy 91st Birthday to your dad Bobbie! 91 and still feisty! 🙂
    I happen to love one pot meals – not only is clean up a breeze but all those flavors gel so well in it – and you have some totally mouthwatering flavors paired with chicken! I love sundried tomatoes and pairing it with chicken and feta sounds like it would be one tasty and satisfying meal!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thanks Shashi, I will pass on your well wishes to my dad. I don’t know about you but these last few weeks and this month ahead is just crazy with the boys with end of the year exams, college prep stuff is keeping us all busy…

  • Looks insanely delicious!!!

  • Aww… happy birthday to your dad! 🙂 This dish looks incredibly delicious! I’m a huge fan of one pot meals, especially during the week, so I’m always on the lookout for new recipes. Can’t wait to give this one a try – I just love the combination of undried tomatoes and feta!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you dear. I know work days are busy and midweek we just need something healthy and quick without a fuss. This recipe checks all the boxes. Wishing you a super week.

  • I just had lunch and yet my mouth is watering looking at all of these pictures. What a gorgeous dish!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Marissa. I just checked out your delicious snow pea and kale salad and thinking about making this for my lunch. So healthy and delicious!

  • Yummy! This looks so delicious and simple to make! Will have to try it for dinner soon 🙂

    • Bams Kitchen

      Don’t you just love those simple dinners that you can get on the table in less than 30 minutes?! Let me know if you like it. Take care

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Mary!

  • Yum – love how healthy this is without the starches on the side. Such a good idea!

  • hotlyspiced

    I have made that same mistake and it’s frightening. You have to have your wits about you when you end up having to drive on the other side of the road. Happy birthday to your beautiful dad. How fantastic to be still going strong at 91 – what a great age. I love the look of your chicken dish – chicken goes so well with feta and sun-dried tomatoes xx

    • Bams Kitchen

      We can only look back at those moments and laugh but it was pretty scary whilst it was occurring. I will pass on your birthday wishes to my dad. Wishing you a super day!

  • hotlyspiced

    Not sure if you got my comment? It seems to have disappeared!

    • Bams Kitchen

      I did get your comment Charlie, maybe it was just a hiccup in the system or internet issues. Let me know if you have further issues.

  • Robyn

    Such a delicious looking dinner, Bobbi! I love sun-dried tomatoes, too. I don’t use my cast iron skillet as much as I’d like because my stove top is ceramic but I do use it in the oven for dishes. Your pictures are simply beautiful – the plating is so scrumptious! Sharing, of course. Talk soon 🙂

  • deliciousmeetshealthywp

    I love one pot meals and this one looks so appetizing! Pinning! Hope to give it a try soon!

  • So exactly how do you make everything look so beautiful and tempting? I swear I could look at your food photos all day. As it turns out I happen to have some chicken waiting for something different & this may just be the perfect solution.

  • Love this great chicken dish! I love using sun dried tomatoes and my cast iron skillet! Happy Birthday to your Dad!

  • First of all, Happy Birthday to you your dad! He seems like a really nice and fun person (like you!). 🙂 And yes I rely on one pot / pan dish on busy day… I love feta & sun dried tomatoes… I fell in love with sun dried tomatoes when I came to the US (there was no such thing growing up in Japan – or at least it wasn’t common). This looks so good, Bobbi!

  • YUM!!! This looks wonderful! Your site is such a breath of fresh air! 🙂

  • I think you have, by far, one of the most extensive food blogs I know! I love this new recipe and see the others are ones I’d like to try as well. Your Dad sounds just like you, or is that the other way around:D Happiest of 91st Birthdays to your Father!!

  • I’m always so happy with the way my food cooks when I use iron cast and one pot meals under 30 minutes is my kind of dish! Happiest of birthdays to your dad 🙂

  • I LOVE the idea of putting this on a bed of spinach! This is such a decadent little dish and so easy! I have to add it to my latest post!!

  • Wow! 91 years old? What a fabulously full life. Your dad sounds like he has a great sense of humor 🙂 As usual, your chicken looks awesome. I always complain about being too busy, yet I insist on making the most complicated meals. Ha! I really should start making more one pot meals like this. Thanks for sharing this with us!

  • Love that this is all made in one pot! Less dishes for me to do! LOL

  • Looks delicious!

  • Mmmmm this look to die for. Some of my favorite flavors, all in one dish! Beautiful!
