Grilled Chicken with Feta Cheese Sauce

Sometimes I make dinner too complicated. I used to be all over casseroles and lots of fan fare, now I like the basics. Chicken. Grilled chicken. With a little kick of flavor.  Making this cheese sauce was simple and quick, and had great flavor with the feta cheese.  My kids are kinda weird about sauce of any kind. They don’t “dip.” Not into ranch, ketchup, or even salsa. So I wasn’t sure how they were going to go for this sauce. I served it on the side, in a separate dish, to give options. They all opted to not try it, until I urged them. I mean, I had to give a FULL account here of how it was received.

I REALLY liked it, and my husband who doesn’t generally care for any cheese other than cheddar or swiss, also gave it 2 thumbs up. Hooray! I couldn’t convince my youngest to even eat chicken, so I wasn’t going to even try with the sauce, but the other big kids gave it a head nod. I’ll take it!

It’s nice and thick, I served it with rice, but also great with pasta or nothing at all.

It encourages me to be creative with different ingredients, and to step outside of my standard recipe box!  It is allows what allows me to share FREE content for all of you to read! How do you like to eat Feta Cheese?  I’ll admit, I haven’t had it too much in my life, and rarely cooked with it, but I quite enjoyed this sauce, and will be making it again.
