Grilled Chicken Breasts with Tomato, Olive and Feta Relish

Okay, so I have a TON of recipes that I need to put on here. I've been cooking more than I've been blogging! I am answering phones today and I have finished all my work that I brought with me to do. I have put up three recipes so make sure to scroll down so you can check them out!

The topping on this chicken is VERY good. It was good with the chicken but could also work as a bruchetta. We had extra topping and finished it off after dinner with tortilla chips so it could be used as a dip as well.

1 1/2 cups chopped cherry tomatoes (about 10 oz)
1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
3 Tablespoons olive oil - divided
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh mint
1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
4 skinless chicken breast halves (again I used 2)

Mix cherry tomatoes, olives, 2 tablespoons olive oil, mint and vinegar in medium bowl. Gently stir in feta cheese. Season relish with salt and pepper. (I did not season with salt and pepper b/c I thought it tasted great as is)

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Brush chicken on both sides with remaining tablespoon olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill chicken until cooked through, about 7 minutes per side.

Transfer chicken to plates and slice if desired (I did b/c I thought it would be easier to eat). Top with relish and serve.
