Greek Chicken with Feta

Amazing recipe for Greek chicken.

Maybe my late Grandma Roush had something in mind when she sent this recipe for Greek Chicken my way, knowing that it would come in handy in my married life. (In my experience, there is nothing a Greek man loves more than good cooking, except maybe IU Basketball and a comfortable couch). So in honor of my big fat Greek wedding, I am passing this greek chicken with feta recipe to you, with love. Make it in bulk for a bridal shower luncheon and your guests will thank you.
