“Its Greek to Me” Chicken
The South Arm Older Adults Cooking Club met again at the South Arm Community Center.
Michelle prepared the above menu for a heart smart cooking session.
The main dish is “Its Greek to Me” Chicken.
- 1 pound chicken tenders (we substitute with chicken breast, cut into 3 strips as Michelle cannot find chicken tenders)
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon onion powder (we substitute with garlic powder as onion powder is not in the pantry)
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
