Roasted Chicken Thighs with Tomatoes, Olives & Feta - Weight Loss Surgery Recipes

After a week out of the country, I was thrilled to be back in my kitchen to make a healthy homemade meal. Growing up a Kansas girl, I grew tired of Wizard of Oz comments….but ya know…there really is no place like home.

I was very excited to put this meal together.  I found the recipe at least a year ago in a Martha Stewart Living magazine but lost it. So you can imagine my excitement when I found it and put it on the menu for the first meal when we got home! I modified it just slightly. Very easy, but a pretty meal to serve to a group. I received lots of compliments…ahem, not that I was fishing for them or anything

Note: this meal is gluten free, but as always review the ingredient list (in this case on the Feta Cheese) if you have a wheat allergy as it can depend upon the brand.
