Olympic Chicken


  • Review by: ChicagoKelly

    I used the Mt. Eulous greek seasoning as a sub for this Olympic Chicken recipe- While it turned out well, I found this seasoning to be a little "muddy." I sprinkled lemon juice on everything and that really helped to brighten up the dish. This seasoning would probably work really nicely on ground beef or grilled turkey meatballs. The recipe itself was very easy, although you cannot "brown" wet marinaded chicken very well. The process did toast up the seasoning left behind by the chicken. I would make this again because it was relatively fast to put together (if you don't count the time it takes to marinate the chicken.)

"Recently I had the opportunity to visit the store in St. Petersburg, FL. What a treat to meet those guys and be treated like one of their regulars! They were willing to break up a set for me so that I could get my Cuban Island Spice -- who does that?! So impressed with them as well."
