This post is sponsored by AdapTable Meals, who I am so excited to partner with! Recipe, photographs, thoughts and opinions are all my own.
This recipe is guaranteed to become a go-to for summer!! Made with so many fresh ingredients, I can't get enough. And can we talk about the honey whipped feta?! It's absolutely delicious and the perfect tangy, creamy, sweet addition to the chicken and potatoes.
But what really takes this dish to another level is the AdapTable Meals Tomato Basil Chicken Breasts!! They have so much fresh herby flavor and pair undeniably well with the rest of the dish.
AdapTable Meals chicken already comes pre-marinated and pre-seasoned, making life so easy. I am terrible about remembering to marinate meat, especially during the busy summer months. And because they're marinated, the chicken comes out so tender and flavorful!

What is whipped feta?
If you like feta, you are going to absolutely LOVE my honey whipped feta.
Whipped feta is made by blending feta cheese with a few simple ingredients to make it creamy and smooth, so that it's a spreadable consistency, similar to a dip. I like to whip my feta with Greek yogurt (but you could also use cream cheese), olive oil and a little honey.
I love the addition of honey because it adds just a touch of sweetness, which helps to balance out the tangy, salty flavor of the feta.
How to make Tomato Herb Chicken and Potatoes with Honey Whipped Feta
This recipe is incredibly simple, but packs so much fresh flavor!! Let's talk about how to make it. Scroll down to the recipe card for the full recipe.
- Roast the potatoes. The potatoes take the longest to cook, so toss them with olive oil, salt and pepper, then roast until crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Don't forget to season generously with salt! Potatoes crave salt.
- Sear the chicken. To get a nice crust on the chicken, pan sear both sides in olive oil until a nice golden brown crust forms. The chicken will finish cooking in the oven, resulting in tender, juicy chicken.
- Tomato sauce. Once the chicken is just about done searing, add tomatoes, garlic and fresh thyme, then season with salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes.
- Finish in the oven. Transfer the skillet with the chicken and tomatoes into the oven. The chicken and tomatoes will finish cooking alongside the potatoes.
- Whipped feta. Meanwhile, make honey whipped feta! Combine feta, Greek yogurt, honey and olive oil in a food processor or blender.
- Enjoy! Spread the whipped feta onto plates, then top with chicken, potatoes and the tomato sauce.
Tips & substitutions
- Feta. I highly recommend using a block of feta versus feta crumbles. Feta blocks are more fresh tasting and give the whipped feta a better texture.
- Potatoes. I like to use russet potatoes, but you can use your favorite! Yukon Gold potatoes or baby potatoes are also great options.
- Thyme. If you don't have fresh thyme, you can substitute ¼ teaspoon dried thyme.
- Garlic. If you don't have fresh garlic, you can substitute ½ teaspoon garlic powder.
- Red pepper flakes. This isn't a must, but it just adds a tiny touch of heat.
- Oven-safe skillet. For this step, you can use a cast iron skillet or a stainless steel skillet as long as the handle is also stainless steel. If you don't have either of those, after searing the chicken and tomatoes, transfer everything to an oven-safe dish.

Honey Whipped Feta
- 1 block feta (8 ounces)
- ¼ cup plain greek yogurt

- Transfer the skillet to the oven and finish cooking alongside the potatoes, about 8-12 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the oven and gently smash some of the tomatoes with a fork to release their juices.
