Greek cuisine is known for its delicious flavors, and one of the most popular dishes is Greek Chicken. This dish is easy to make, packed with flavor, and perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or a weekend meal.
— Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
- ½ cup Greek salad dressing, see notes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/3 cup dry white wine, see notes
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/3 cup Greek salad dressing
- 1/3 cup chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons honey
- ½ teaspoon mustard powder
- ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/3 cup Feta cheese, crumbled
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes
- ½ cup olives, black, green, kalamata, or a mix
— How To Make It :
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Slice the chicken in half lengthwise to create 2-3 thinner slices.
Place in a gallon freezer bag (or in between saran wrap) and use the textured side of a meat mallet to pound it to ½ inch thick. Pat completely dry.
Sprinkle lightly with salt/pepper. Place ½ cup of the Greek dressing in a gallon freezer bag and add the chicken.
Remove excess air from the bag and seal. Marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Sear the chicken in batches for 3-4 minutes per side, until a golden crust has developed. Set aside.
Add the wine to the skillet over medium heat and use a silicone spatula to “clean” the bottom and sides of the skillet. Let it reduce by half, 3-4 minutes.
Add the garlic and melt the butter. Cook for 2 minutes. Add 1/3 cup Greek dressing, chicken broth, honey, mustard powder, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir to combine and bring to a gentle boil.
Let it simmer and reduce for 5-8 minutes. (The longer it simmers, the more glaze-like it becomes.) Remove from heat.
Transfer the sauce to a 9 x 13-inch baking dish if your skillet isn’t oven safe.
Add the chicken to the sauce along with any juices from the plate.
Spoon some sauce over the chicken and sprinkle each piece with Feta cheese.
Arrange the cherry tomatoes and olives around the chicken.
Bake for 15 minutes, then remove from the oven and serve with Greek potatoes and/or roasted asparagus.
For even more flavor, marinate the chicken for up to 24 hours.
If you have the time, grill the chicken instead of baking it for a smoky flavor.
Add some diced tomatoes, cucumbers, and feta cheese to create a Greek-inspired salad to serve alongside the chicken.
For a low-carb option, serve the chicken with roasted vegetables like bell peppers, zucchini, and eggplant.
If you have leftovers, store the chicken in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. To reheat, place the chicken in the oven at 350°F (177°C) for 10-15 minutes, or until heated through.
