I very rarely make chicken…I very rarely am in the mood for it. But today was one of those days where the opportunity presented itself.
I knew I had some feta and olives at home and set out for a greek chicken recipe. A few caught my eye and have been bookmarked for later visits, but today this one was the winner.
AllRecipes has been a great source for many of my bread recipes and allows the option of creating an account and saving recipes to a virtual recipe box…perfect for those days you see something worth attempting to make later. Also, it allows for adjusting serving sizes…for someone who mostly cooks for herself, it’s a great way to whittle the calculations down from 6 servings to 2 or 3.
I didn’t have a bouillon cube. Thanks to google and some raiding of my supplies, I was able to substitute with some curry powder, olive oil, oregano, basil, and black pepper. I’m sure the cube would’ve given a much strong flavor, but this was light and natural and tasted great.
I added some potatoes as a side- just a tablespoon of butter (can always be substituted for the healthier option of olive oil) and a pre-microwaved semi cooked potato. I diced it after it was microwaved and then tossed it into the butter on medium heat…a few minutes in and a pinch of salt and parsley later, they were golden and ready.
I’d definitely make the chicken again, in fact I have the second portion still waiting for me as leftovers.
