How to make the tomato relish

This tomato relish is Mediterranean inspired and calls for fresh herbs such as chives, parsley and/or green onions. Using all those herbs is perfectly fine or you can choose one. Dice up tomatoes and place into a bowl, add the herbs, feta cheese, plus the fresh herbs and toss. I used Chives for this recipe. Finally, add salt and pepper to taste.

Is it ok to eat chicken daily?

It is OK to eat Chicken daily if you are cooking or preparing it the healthy way. Meaning, searing, grilling, baking, and so on. Chicken is lean meat especially if you are using chicken breasts without skin. They are low in fat and the quality of protein is great.

What temperature should chicken be cooked to

A chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit (75 Celcius ). Use a digital thermomemter to determine the precise temperature. Most don’t use a thermometer but if you prefer using this method then that’s what you should be aiming for.

    Delicious. Used a bit more feta than in the recipe which really held the tomato together and worked very well.

    I’ll be having this regularly I think!
