Chicken Thighs With Lemon & Garlic

Recipe by Boonyas mom

This is a Mediterranean/Greek recipe. It's very easy and can even be cooked in a crockpot. Serve with rice/orzo or mash potatoes and big Greek salad.

We really enjoyed this! We served it with Greek salad, and icy cold Retsina, from Corinthia! We were going to give it a 5, but thought maybe the sauce could be a little thicker. I will make double the amount of roux next time. Great recipe, thanks for sharing it! [Made for Fall 08 PAC]
