I had bought some leg quarters and was needing a dish I could easily prepare and let cook while I took care of some yard work. The Greek Chicken Dinner worked perfectly. I had everything I needed on hand, it came together quickly and baked while I took care of other things. I served it with a green salad and some yeast rolls from the freezer and it was delicious. The seasoning gave the chicken and vegetables a good taste. Browning the chicken gave it a nice crispy coating.

It's hard to go wrong with this classic recipe. The seasoning gives it a lot of bounce. If you like a little more moisture in the cooking, add a little chicken stock. I added a bit more potatoes and carrots and onion just to extend it, and it was still excellent. Good wholesome food for a relaxed Sunday night.

I made this last night and the whole family rated it "A Keeper"! It was easy to prep and it looks like a very versatile recipe; you could sub any veggies that roast well, change up the seasonings or the quantities, etc. This one is in my recipe box for good!
