Do not let this huge list of ingredients and steps scare you off of one AHH!-mazing Greek dish. This is one to set aside some time, and help, and put right in there on your meal planner and envision yourself off at a Greek taverna in Santorini whiling away during sunset. If you are able to, you can make the chicken while you make the other components, just carefully read the instructions and steps to make sure you don't miss anything important in the process. In the end, this is simply marinated chicken, souped up fries, and a cucumber garlic sauce. Make this dish and report back!
Combine all the ingredients, add chicken and refrigerate for at lease 2 hours or overnight. Longer is better. Let chicken come to room temperature before cooking.
Two cooking options: one is to grill the chicken and then slice it, OR roast it in oven. If baking, preheat oven to 425.
Place chicken in a baking dish and roast for 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool for 5 minutes, then shred or slice the chicken.
In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients up till the potatoes. Place the potatoes in a large bowl and pour half the oil mixture over them. Toss to coat.
Turn onto baking sheets, more than one if needed. Bake with the chicken for 15-20 minutes, or if you are grilling the chicken bake at 425 for 15-20, then reduce the oven to 400 and bake for 15-20 minutes more.
Remove from the oven and toss with the remaining oil mixture and the feta.
Roasted Garlic Tzatziki
Preheat oven to 425.
Chop the top portion of the garlic head to reveal the cloves. Peel any extra papery skin off. Place the bulb on a piece of aluminum foil and drizzle about a teaspoon of oil over the top. Cover with foil making a little pouch. Roast the garlic directly on the oven rack for about 45 minutes or until the garlic is soft and brown. Remove the pouch form the oven, open and let the garlic cool for about 5 minutes.
Squeeze the cloves out into a bowl and mash well with a fork. Add the remaining ingredients to a bowl and mix well, adding the roasted garlic to taste.
Plenty of options here: you can make this 'gyro' style and use a lettuce wrap or pita bread or make it more of a greek platter plate: put together the chicken, feta fries and lettuce on a big ol' plate. Drizzle with some of that incredible tzatkiki sauce and serve with warm pitas or other chips or dippers of choice.
