Chicken Feta

Chicken Feta
Serves 4

Here is a great low budget recipe from Eat Better America. Add a spinach salad and you are good to go.

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
2 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette dressing
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon seasoned pepper blend
1 large plum (Roma) tomato, cut into 8 slices
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (1 oz)

Set oven control to broil. Brush both sides of chicken breasts with dressing. Sprinkle both sides with Italian seasoning and seasoned pepper. Place on rack in broiler pan.

Broil with tops 4 inches from heat about 10 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut. Top with tomato and cheese. Broil 2 to 3 minutes longer or until cheese is lightly browned.

High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Broil chicken about 15 minutes. Top with tomato and cheese. Broil 1 to 2 minutes longer.

JC Penney's $10 off $25

Brands to Watch This Week - from Hot Coupon World

Kellogg's – Stores nationwide are running some pretty good sales this week on Kellogg's cereal and brands. You can't go wrong with cereal, as long as you check the sell-by date. Store it for 9 months to a year.

Unilever Brands – This past weekend, there was an amazing Unilever insert in the Sunday newspapers. (OK, well, really it was the 07-31-11 RP!) And now we're seeing some really great deals at grocery and drug stores. Check out savings on Dove, Lipton, Bertoli, Breyers, Hellmann's, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, Klondike, Knorr Rice and Pasta sides, Ragu, Skippy, and lots more. This is a great time to stockpile and count your savings!

P&G Brands – Again, because there was a P&G insert in this weekend's newspapers, we're discovering some really great deals happening with these brands. The best ones have been for Always, Bounty, Crest, Duracell, Gillette, Mr. Clean, Pampers, Tampax, and Tide - but keep watching the shelves for even more!

Office Depot stores offer protractors, vinyl storage pouches, and 2-pocket portfolios for 5 cents each. Plus, with each purchase of $15 or more, you'll get a free backpack with lunch tote. Deal ends August 6.
