Zeus and Hera, those oldie-but-goodie Greek gods, never seemed to have that great of a marriage, what with all his cheating and… well, all his cheating. That's not to say every Greek marriage is doomed: This one, of salty briny feta and fresh spinach, is a match made in the Elysian Fields. It enrobes the chicken with a flavor that's rich, cheesy, Greek perfection; every bite will make you wish the gods would grant you more and more. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.
