Greek Chicken Bake

I’m a fan of recipes that basically boil down to throw everything in a pan and bake.  That’s what drew me to this Greek chicken recipe.  (Of course, Feta cheese was also a pretty big draw for me.)  I’m a fan of the flavors that are in this recipe, so I was ready to give them a try all together.  For this you will need:

  • Chicken
  • Tomatoes
  • Artichoke hearts
  • Green onions
  • Feta Cheese

Greek Chicken Bake

Review

This was disappointing, but not necessarily a “never again” recipe.  My problem with this recipe was that there was all this delicious goodness in what I poured on top of the chicken, but the chicken itself was kind of tasteless.  I think, though, that this has a simple solution.  I think that if I modified the recipe to chunk the chicken instead of leaving full breasts it would allow the flavors to mingle better and be absorbed into the chicken on a deeper level.  The idea is that there will be more surface area for the flavors to penetrate, thus an overall tastier experience.

As far as ingredients go, I was good except for the Greek seasoning that the recipe called for.  I couldn’t find anything that was labeled as such, or even anything that was remotely close.  In the end, I picked up a garlic and herb seasoning mix and hoped for the best.  I think it went fine, but I’m curious how much better the final product might have been with the proper seasoning.

Will I make this again?  Yes.  If for no other reason than I want to know if it is possible to add some flavor to that chicken, which was the real letdown of this recipe.
