Greek Lemon Chicken and Potatoes

Rating: 5 stars 1202
A one-pan recipe for crispy, tender, and oh-so-tasty chicken and potatoes.

Briam (Greek Baked Zucchini and Potatoes)

Rating: 4.5 stars 367
Briam is a traditional Greek roasted vegetable dish with potatoes, zucchini, tomatoes, and red onions with lots of olive oil. It is a typical example of Greek cuisine where a few simple ingredients are turned into an utterly delicious dish with little effort. It can be served as a main course. With olive oil as the only source of fat it is a quintessential example of the Mediterranean diet, and it is vegan to boot. If preferred, serve with a hearty chunk of feta on the side.

Pork Souvlaki

Rating: 5 stars 15
Seasoned bits of pork or lamb are allowed to season in a Mediterranean marinade for as long as you can stand it! Wonderful with rice and a cucumber and tomato salad. Serve with lemon slices and chopped parsley.

Avgolemono Soup

Rating: 5 stars 77
Avgolemono is one of those soups that I've made many times, but rarely from scratch. It's usually a 'there's nothing in the house' type of thing and made with a carton of broth. Even in its quick-and-easy form it's a delicious and comforting meal, but when you use a fresh whole chicken, it becomes epic. Garnish with parsley and lemon zest.

Greek Horiatiki Salad

Rating: 5 stars 20
This is the classic Greek salad and the one and only recipe you'll ever need.

Grilled Greek Chicken

Rating: 5 stars 81
The secret to this simple grilled chicken is a very powerful marinade and 'roasting' it slowly over semi-indirect heat on the grill.
