Quick and easy Greek dinner. Serve with a simple salad.

Top Review by alligirl

Simple and easy, this made a tasty one-pan meal. I followed directions as written, except I used chicken tenders, as it is what was on hand. I did reduce the browning and cooking time, so as not to dry the tenders out. This was satisfying and will certainly go into my 'easy weeknight dinner' folder. Thanks for sharing, Pesto Lover!
