Five-Ingredient Grecian Chicken

**Have you voted for my cupcake yet?**

I used to relish the time on the weekends to cook things that I didn’t have time to during the week. Homemade croissants, ravioli, super-deluxe-fancy cupcakes… now, those things are saved for extra days off, and weekends have been relegated to extra days off and weekends have been designated “cook delicious stuff for the week and work on grad school homework” days.

Last weekend, I made an Asian-style crockpot chicken which was decent, and delicious on rice, but not what we’d call “blog-worthy.” This weekend, I went back to my early cooking roots.

When I was in college and first really learning how to cook, there were three things I was good at making: Pizza chicken (kind of a chicken parmesan), baked pasta, and Greek chicken. I made these things so often that my one baking pan was permanently stained red from the pasta sauce, and my one big plastic bowl constantly had the scent of lemon and garlic thanks to marinating Greek chicken multiple times a week.

Yes, it’s that easy. I hesitate to even call this a recipe! I served the chicken nicely sliced with some roasted potatoes, but any vegetable would be delicious. Sometimes, really, simple is best.

I love using a similar marinade to make grilled chicken, especially on a Greek Salad. Looks delicious lady! I used to use Sunday’s as my cooking day, but now, that’s obviously changed. Now I’m just trying to find at least one day a week that I can cook.
