They say to beware of Greeks bearing gifts, but they never said to beware of Greeks bearing chicken. This Greek chicken is less “beware” and more “beloved,” with a sour cream and dill sauce that dresses the chicken beautifully. Tip: Want to get the most juice out of your lemon? Before cutting, microwave the lemon for 15-20 seconds to "soften" the fruit. Then, gently roll the softened fruit on your work surface while pressing on it with your palm. Finally, give yourself some serious mechanical advantage by placing a cut half in between the arms of a pair of tongs to make squeezing much easier.
