Baked Chicken Tenderloins with Wine and Feta Cheese

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.


My sister and I took my kids to the Memphis Zoo on Saturday for a few hours. We had a blast; but by the time we got back, we were all hot, tired, and a little grumpy. The kids and Ashley took a nap. I read and wrote and stared out the window. About 5:15, I figured I should think about dinner.

We had planned to make Tomato Basil Burgers, which are awesome. But we both forgot and had hamburgers for lunch, and we just weren’t in the mood for something that heavy.

I used what she had to make these amazing chicken tenderloins with creamy feta broiled on top. You could use any piece of chicken, you’ll just need to adjust your baking time accordingly.

This recipe has some Greek flair, but I hesitate to call it Greek because I used Italian seasoning instead of straight-up oregano and California wine.


Baked Chicken Tenderloins with Wine and Feta Cheese

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Serving Size: 3 tenders

Calories per serving: 281

Fat per serving: 8

Serves 4, with about 3 chicken tenders per serving. You may need to spoon some of the feta back on to the chicken after plating it.


  • 1 1/2 lbs. chicken tenderloins (or substitute breasts or thighs and adjust cooking time up)
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/4 c. white wine (I used sauvignon blanc)
  • 4 oz. tomato and basil feta cheese (like Athenos)


Preheat oven to 375F.

Pat tenders dry. Sprinkle both sides with garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Place in a large baking dish coated with cooking spray or oil.

Pour in wine, trying not to wash away herbs on top of chicken.

Bake about 20 minutes, until chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle feta on top of chicken and broil for 3-4 minutes, until feta is slightly browned.

Out of interest, I calculated nutrition for this recipe. Each serving has 281 calories and 8 grams of fat. It is 6 points on the Weight Watchers Points Plus system. [True calories are probably fewer, because most of the wine stays in the pan.]
