Greek-Style Chicken Casserole

"This makes a wonderful meal served with a green salad and some crusty bread to mop up the sauce. If you don't have any feta, it is just as good made with mozzarella."

  • Separate the chicken legs at the joints; wipe dry.

  • Return the chicken to the pan; cover and cook over medium-low heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced.

  • Stir the macaroni and olives into the chicken mixture.
  • Sprinkle with the feta and parsley; bake in a 425 degree F oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until the feta has melted.

  1. My taste-buds thank you! Absolutely delicious, and so, so easy! I had some feta to use up, and I love kalamata olives, so gave this recipe a try. DH was disappointed to see how little there was (4 serves), looks like I'll be making double or triple next time.
  2. So easy and so flavourful! My DH and I loved it. We'll be making this again and again!


<p>I live with my husband, four cats, and a sweet mutt named Jada in Scarborough, Ontario, where I work as an elementary school administrative assistant. I have a 31 year old daughter who lives with her boyfriend in nearby Don Mills, along with my sweet granddogs, Frankie and Turbo. I would have to say that my passion is animals, since I have so many of them! <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br />If I had a month off work to do what I please, I would first catch up on my sleep and then just have fun - see a few movies and maybe take a couple of short trips - something that wouldn't break the bank - lol!</p>
