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.
