Ingredients

    1 tablespoon olive oil
    2 cups chopped onion (about 1 large)
    2 tablespoons dried thyme
    1 to 2 teaspoons black pepper
    10 garlic cloves, minced
    6 cups (1/2-inch) cubed red potato (about 2 pounds)

    8 skinned, boned chicken thighs (about 1 pound)
    1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°.

Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the thyme, pepper, and garlic; sauté 1 minute. Increase heat to medium-high.

    This sounds great, but I will definitely halve the portion size to keep the calories and fat down. (I only get 1200 calories a day, so I can't afford to eat half my calories in one meal.) - 9/2/09

    I am definitely going to try this one. I agree - half of a serving is more like one serving for those of us aiming to balance calories over time. - 8/20/14

    I didn't have regular diced tomatoes, so used 2 cans Rot-el instead, plus a bit of tomato sauce, and I only used 4 chicken thighs. Used real goat cheese feta too. Yummy! and definitely easy to make. This one is a keeper! - 7/8/12

    Very filling and good. I'd cut back on the thyme a little bit though. - 4/16/10
