Greek Chicken

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by JustJanS

Russ found this recipe in a senior's magazine he picked up. I was a bit worried about the ouzo and star anise in it, but decided to give it a go. I was pleased to find it was simple and delicious and I'll be making it again soon.

DD has too many food allergies so we are always looking for new foods. Being Greek, I'm always leary of recipes. THis one was good but I used kalamata olives and more ouzo.

  4. Add the pitted olives and cook a further 5-10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  5. Serve over rice, cous cous or noodles with the feta sprinkled over the top.
