Greek Chicken

Yes, a single baking pan is all you need, which will certainly come in handy for those busy weeknights, or even when you have friends over so you’re not slaving away in the kitchen while trying to be a good host.

Most of the recipes for this dish call for a whole cut up chicken. But I think that the thighs just get more tender and juicy when baked.

Steamed green beans or any other green vegetable finish out this easy meal.
