I'm not sure how 'Greek' this is. However, my father made this, his parents came from Cephalonia, and he called it 'Greek stew.' As with many such recipes, the leftovers are even better a day or two later.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare a Dutch oven or large pot with cooking spray. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in hot oil until onion soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove onion mixture to a bowl.

  • Heat remaining olive oil in the pot again over medium heat. Cook chicken in hot oil, turning a few times, until browned, about 5 minutes.

  • Pour wine over the chicken; bring to a simmer and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes.

  • Stir onion mixture, tomato sauce, black pepper, lemon juice, hot pepper sauce, and cinnamon with the simmering chicken; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, place a cover on the pot, and cook at a simmer until the chicken is easily pulled apart, about 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

Serve with a Greek salad and bread for sopping. As kids, the sopped bread was the main course for us, and the chicken was a side.

Substitute any cooked rice for bread and put stew over the rice.

Will definitely make it again. Very tasty and a little different flavor from what I am used to. I made a few slight changes .. I added a more then a drop of hot sauce, gave the bottle a few good shakes. I used three cinnamon sticks to simmer in the stew while cooking. The biggest change was, I simmered it uncovered rather then covered. The stew looked too watery, and I like a thicker stew. It reduced nicely. Read More

This recipe was just okay. It was bland and quite watery. Probably won't make this again. Read More

Very tasty! The chicken cooked up tender and juicy. The flavours were a wonderful treat ranging from the citrus and tomato to the nutty cinnamon. Thank you Craig Chandler for your recipe. Read More

If you re looking for something a little different in a chicken dish you may want to try this recipe. The flavor profile is complex and the chicken comes out moist and flavorful. I deboned the chicken for ease in serving. Read More

I have actually made this recipe many many times. It's so easy and my husband who is a picky eater requests this meal. The only thing I change is I half the recipe and then add canned tomatoes instead of just tomato sauce because I think the stew needs the extra consistency that the tomatoes bring to the dish. It's so easy especially for people with young kids who need a meal fast or one that they can leave on the stove. Forever and always love this meal. Read More

I just made this recipe and the only change was that I had to substitute half of the white wine with chicken broth because I didn't have enough wine (didn't know what else to do). It was so good! My husband and daughter liked it but I went back for seconds. I served it with white rice. This is a new way for me to make chicken and it was simple and tasty. I'm so happy I found this recipe!
