He looks Greek to me.

"People who are not Greek; wish they were Greek"
Gus - My Big Fat Greek Wedding

My family turns Greek every time we watch M.B.F.G.W. and when I cook Greek Chicken. I have to admit that it's pretty good. And...it is so easy to make. I tell you now:

4 boneless skinless chicken breast
3 lemons (juice)
1/2ish cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4ish cup of oregano (fresh is best, but dried will work)
4 garlic cloves
4 to 6 Yukon Gold Potatoes (peeled)
1 - can chicken broth
1 baking dish

1. Spray backing dish with non-stick spray and place in breast (the chickens.)
2. In a small mixing bowl whisk olive oil, lemon juice and oregano together. (I use a small wire strainer when squeezing the lemons to catch the seeds)
3. Quarter peeled potatoes and place around the breast.
4. Place whole peeled garlic cloves in dish.
5. Pour olive oil mix over chicken.
6. Pour enough chicken broth to bring liquid up to almost cover breast.
7. Bake uncovered at 375 for about 1 1/2 hours on middle rack until done.

This dish smells great cooking. As a bonus slice lemons thinly and place in baking dish for added lemon flavor. Potatoes should brown nicely at exposed tips. Serve with pita bread and tzatiki(cucumber sauce - super easy to make)

And there you go. Now you are Greek.

Opa!
