This dish was a big success. It was easy to put together, extremely delicious and it took not time to cook. Best of all, it is one-pot meal. I wanted to make the meal extra healthy so I roasted a couple bunches of asparagus on the side. I served my daughter some crusty bread on the side with the chicken and some asparagus. I ate it just with the asparagus and it was extremely satisfying.
I had a tray of chicken thighs and legs which I marinated in some garlic, olives, lemon juice and oregano- all the flavors I think of when Greek cuisine comes to mind.

The crusty bread finished the dish off beautifully…
