This is a simple and traditional Greek way of preparing chicken. Adapted from Authentic Greek Recipes
- 2 chicken legs
- 2 chicken breasts
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
- 4 garlic cloves, sliced
- lemon juice, from 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon oregano
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1⁄2 cup water
- Heat the oil in a shallow pan, add the chicken pieces and fry for 5 mins on each side, until golden brown. Add the garlic and fry for another minute, until it is fragrant.
- Add the water, oregano, salt and pepper and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and simmer covered for 45 mins, until the chicken is done and tender.
- Dissolve the flour in the lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of water. Add to the liquid in the pan and simmer uncovered for another 2-3 mins until it is thickened.
- Serve over rice.
Simple and delicious! I doubled the recipe, using all drumsticks, and it worked out really well. I loved the thick, lemony sauce. Yum! Made for Zingo ZWT9 for the Soup-A-Stars. Thank you!
This was soooo good!!! Had a house full of young men, and they said it was awesome!!! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Made for ZWT 9.
