If you think boneless, skinless chicken breasts can never be succulent and moist, consider this the cooking method that will change your mind. The secret is feta. Yes, that salty, tangy cheese that you crumble over your salads can actually be transformed into a salty, tangy brine for your meat with the help of your trusty blender. What it does to the chicken is almost magical. It not only flavors the meat, but also gives it juiciness, so as it roasts in the oven it still remains full of flavor, never growing dry. Add tons of garlic (a whole head, in fact), and fresh rosemary to the equation and the result is a Greek-inspired chicken breast dinner you’ll be cheering about.
