Greek Lemon Chicken and Potatoes

Rating: 4.76 stars
I don't have the energy or courage to cater for a living but, if I did, this Greek lemon chicken and potatoes would be one of my go-to entrees, and not just for big, fat weddings. It's a proven crowd-pleaser, simple to make, and easy on the wallet.

Greek Stuffed Tomatoes and Peppers (Yemista)

Rating: 4.4 stars
This is my favorite! The best time to make it is in August when the garden tomatoes are ready for harvest. Hothouse tomatoes are just not the same. My mom made this every year, and when she did, I thought I died and went to heaven. Enjoy!

Arakas Latheros (Greek Peas with Tomato and Dill)

Rating: 4.5 stars
Peas are normally considered a side dish, but in Greece it is common to eat a plate full of vegetables as a main course. This traditional way of cooking peas is so satisfying and healthy, it will most certainly become a favorite. Serve with crusty bread and feta for the ultimate meal!

Greek Lemon Chicken and Potato Bake

Rating: 4.63 stars
I love one-pan meals, especially when no measuring and exact ingredients are involved. I made this one Sunday when I didn't want to babysit my food in the kitchen! Turned out great, and I served it with tzatziki sauce.

Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce

Rating: 4.74 stars
Greek kabobs. Fantastic flavor for chicken. Marinade can also be used for pork.

Greek-Inspired Seared Pork Chops

Bursting with flavor and perfect for a light summer dinner, these Greek-inspired pork chops are anything but boring. The pork is well seasoned and the flavor is amplified through the caramelization that occurs during searing. The bright acidity is balanced out with salty, brininess from the olives and feta.

Greek Island Chicken Shish Kebabs

This is a nice change from the ordinary grilled chicken. This is excellent served with pita bread, a garlicky tzatziki, and a Greek salad. Lamb can be substituted for the chicken, and many variations on vegetables can be used.
