I've been making this for years. I can prepare it in the morning and leave it to marinade all day. As long as you have chicken, a fresh lemon and garlic - you are all set to go! Serve with salad or this is especially nice with cubes of roasted potatoes, flavoured with rosemary.

A back-to-basics roast chicken recipe that is a staple in all Greek homes. Lemon, oregano, salt and pepper - and that's all you need for a gorgeous Greek roast chicken. There are variations to 'kotopoulo sto fourno', but this is the delicious bare-bones version that will become a family favourite.

Roast chicken and potatoes is a staple in every Greek home. You can use lemon or orange juice in this roast chicken recipe; I like both. Lemon is more typical. Also, my aunt never uses garlic, so you can leave it out if desired. Serve with a crisp green salad.

For a fabulously flavourful dish that takes just minutes to make, simply sauté garlic, onion and tender strips of chicken. Add artichoke hearts, tomato, feta cheese, parsley, lemon juice and oregano, and toss with hot pasta.

This is traditional hearty Greek comfort food. Stifado is typically made with rabbit or beef. This version uses chicken.

These chicken pitas are packed with tasty salad leaves and a sauce made from cucumbers and yoghurt. They are incredibly easy to prepare, so when you are short of time, skip the fast food and try these instead.

This is a delectable chicken dish from Kozani, a city and region in northern Greece. The prunes and onion lend sweetness, while the paprika offers a smoky flavour. Serve with steamed rice.

In this glorious Greek dish, chicken is braised in a rich tomato sauce with orzo pasta. Top with a grated hard Greek cheese, such as Mizithra or Kefalotyri, or any other hard and salty cheese, such as Parmesan or Pecorino Romano.

Greek fried chicken is not the same as your American variety. Fried in olive oil and served with lemon, there's a definite Mediterranean flair to this recipe. Serve with a green salad or Greek salad on the side.
