A simple combination of tomatoes,garlic, chicken, feta, and spices makes for a terrific meal. Served over rice or pasta, this Chicken Feta Casserole is full of flavor and a family favorite!

When you’re looking for a easy, weeknight dinner, this chicken casserole recipe is super quick, absolutely delicious and your family will clean their plates.

I have three go-to recipes when I have feta in the fridge.  One is a Greek salad, another is  chicken kebabs, and third is this chicken feta casserole.

If you are a garlic fan, you’ll love the spicy aroma of your kitchen while this is baking in the oven. It makes my mouth water every time.  I shared this with some friends last week, and one loved this chicken casserole recipe so much she made it first as written and then with shrimp the next night. I hope you’ll find it just as enticing.

Easy Chicken Casserole Recipe

I meet up with a fun group of moms a few times a year. When our boys were in elementary school, we’d get together to play euchre, but it morphed into dinner out as they graduated high school and now college. One night we exchanged easy dinner recipes. I handed out my pasta with a quick sausage sauce and took home a stack of recipe cards which included this marvelous dish.

There are a few pans involved and some chopping and simmering, but nothing complicated. Garlic, dried oregano and fresh basil amp up the tomato sauce while some red pepper flakes give the chicken some zing. Crumbled feta provides a creamy richness along with a subtle saltiness. All these flavors marry to make one amazing entree. I’ve served on both rice and pasta,  to rave reviews. Use whatever your family prefers. I know they’ll love this chicken feta casserole!
