This is a simple and traditional Greek way of preparing chicken. Adapted from Authentic Greek Recipes


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
