Grecian Chicken - Recipes

Having eaten quite a bit of chicken while away, and hearing the groans from two kiddos that we were having chicken again, I was in the mood to try a new recipe just to add some variety.

I took out the book 1,001 Low Carb Recipes for Life out of the library right before we left so I figured we might try something from it. This recipe was one that the kiddos thought sounded pretty good and gave me the green light to try.

The chicken was quite tasty, the only thing I would change would be to cut back on the oregano. There was just too much of it (oregano) for our taste.
I can also say that it makes a nice addition to a salad the next day.


I used boneless chicken breasts while the original recipe called for 2lbs chicken pieces (bone-in)
