Chicken with Feta, Tomatoes and Olives Sauce

Hi, Folks. I’m always looking for good chicken recipes. Since we often play pickle-ball in the early evenings, I sometimes cook our main meal at lunch. Today, I had one good size chicken breast and no idea what to do with it. So with the help of a Weight Watchers recipe for Braised Chicken with Feta and Olives. I used what I had on hand and came up with the following recipe. My husband thought it was delicious and so did I! I cooked cabbage and green beans to go with the dish. Oh, and since my husband doesn’t like cabbage, I boiled a potato for him. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
