Ingredients
Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 tbsp (45mL) 
Vegetable oil, divided
2 to 3 
Cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
Medium zucchini, thinly sliced
Small eggplant, thinly sliced
Red pepper, sliced
Red onion, cut into eighths
1/3 cup (75mL) 
Prepared oil and vinegar dressing
1/3 cup (75mL) 
Crumbled feta cheese
2 tbsp (30mL) 
Italian parsley, coarsely chopped
 
Salt and pepper to taste


Directions
PREHEAT broiler.

HEAT 2 tbsp (30 mL) oil in a large non stick skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken for 5 10 minutes. Meanwhile, toss the vegetables in the remaining oil and place on a large baking sheet. Place on the top rack under broiler and broil for 15 20 minutes, turning once or twice until the vegetables are lightly charred.

TURN and continue cooking chicken for 3 minutes until lightly browned. Add the garlic and reduce heat to medium low, continuing to cook for 4 5 more minutes or until the garlic is golden brown and the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 170˚F (77˚C).

TRANSFER chicken to a plate; tent with foil to rest for at least 3 minutes.

REMOVE vegetables from broiler and toss with dressing.

TRANSFER the cooked chicken and vegetables onto a large serving dish. Sprinkle with the feta cheese, parsley, salt and pepper.

TIPS: You can also create your own Mediterranean Chicken Wraps by rolling flatbreads or filling pita pockets filled with layers of sliced chicken, roasted veggies and feta, but they’re best served immediately. Cook the garlic until golden brown colour, but be careful not to burn it, as it becomes bitter in flavour.
