Kotopoulo Riganato tis Skaras (Broiled Chicken Oregano)

Here is another great recipe from The Complete Book of Greek CookingAs you’ll recall, I’ve been cooking up and posting adaptations of these recipes and thus far, they have been great.  I definitely recommend it if you are looking for some seriously good, home-style Greek cooking.

If you’re like me (and many of my clients), you are always on the lookout for new ways to cram some flavor into chicken breasts.  Not only does this recipe deliver big garlic and oregano flavor, but it is also super easy.  Bonus?  You can add this one to your arsenal of heart healthy recipes.  A quick word regarding cooking method here:  While you can certainly broil the chicken, I’m always quick to fire up the grill.

Hearthbread

Oh my.  This recipe is amazing and great for bread-making newbies!  I’ve made it so many times that I rarely use the recipe and it is always a hit.  The bread is soft, slightly salty, and deliciously aromatic.  It is also super versatile.  I especially enjoy hearthbread with spaghetti, which just happens to be on the dinner menu tonight.  While a simple topping of chopped parsley and minced garlic is my favorite stand-by (and the reason there is always fresh parsley in my house), the savory possibilities are near endless.  Artichoke hearts, olives, roasted tomatoes, fresh herbs, your favorite cheese…I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!

This is my first recipe post and while I’m hoping there aren’t any issues, I do hope you’ll let me know if you have any questions or problems!  Enjoy!
