This easy Baked Greek Chicken with lemon zest, red onion, kalamata olives and spices is a flavor-filled delight! Place this tasty chicken on a bed of spinach with Feta cheese for a simple and delicious meal.
Two of my amazing girlfriends from my childhood came over for dinner (read: wine) the other night so I wanted to throw together a simple and tasty dinner that I could make while chatting (read: drinking) with them in the kitchen.
I decided on a Mediterranean menu, so I made a tray of antipasto for us to snack on before dinner, then put together this Greek Baked Chicken!
This Greek chicken bake is so incredibly easy to make – just toss everything into an ovenproof dish and throw it in the oven.
Ali over at Gimme Some Oven gave me the idea to spread some hummus over the chicken before cooking it, which is pretty much a life-changing idea.
The hummus worked as an insulator to keep the baked Greek chicken breast moist and tender, while the top part of the hummus gets light and crispy. Crispy = yummy.
This is so wonderful on a bed of spinach, or topped on warm pita bread!
Us gals gobbled this down, then devoured 6 Lemon-Rosemary Panna Cottas between the three of us.
We didn’t have much wine leftover, either!
Here’s the Recipe!
