Chicken with Feta Cheese Sauce

I had bought a container of Feta cheese from Costco, since it was about double the price of the ones that are sold in the grocery store, and about 5 times bigger.  I figured we would be able to finish it because Mike really loves the Cranberry, Feta, Walnut salad.

I guess I miscalculated, since we still had some Feta cheese left, and it was going to expire soon. I scoured the internet for recipes that included Feta cheese.  Apparently making your own Feta cheese is pretty popular, but I digress.

Most recipes that used Feta cheese made a Greek dish that would normally involve olives.  I don’t like olives, and I don’t have any at home, so all those recipes were out.

I decided to try to make a sauce that would include Feta cheese.  There are many other sauces that use other types of cheese, why not Feta?

I thought the sauce was especially delicious on the broccoli I served with the meal.
