Ingredients

For the chicken marinade

  • ½ lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • Zest of ½ a lemon
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper

For the casserole

  • 2 pounds small red potatoes, cleaned and scrubbed; larger ones cut in quarters, smaller ones can remain whole or cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • ½ dry pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ½ cup chopped baby spinach

Preparation
Prep Time: 20min | Cook Time: 60min

For the chicken marinade

1. Add the chicken to a large resealable plastic bag.

2. Whisk the remaining ingredients together in a small bowl and pour into the bag with the chicken.

3. Seal and set aside to marinate for at least an hour, up to overnight.

4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and place the marinated chicken in the pan. Cook until browned on each side and chicken is fully cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and shred with two forks. Set aside.

For the casserole

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

2. Toss the potatoes, olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper in a large bowl until all the potatoes are evenly coated.

3. Add the olives, tomatoes, feta and shredded chicken to the bowl and gently toss to combine.

4. Transfer the mixture to a 9 x 9 or similar sized baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes.

5. Remove the foil, increase the temperature to 400°F, and bake for another 20 minutes until the potatoes start to brown and crisp around the edges.

6. Remove from oven, top with chopped spinach and serve.

It was delicious, I did it without the chicken to serve it as a side dish for steak.

Haven't tried it yet, but it sounds fab! I'm going to take out the olives, and put in sliced purple . And, instead of the chicken thighs, I'm going to do breasts, grill them, then slice thinly and serve on the side. Yum!

This is fantastic. Made a couple of changes -my family won't eat olives so we left those out and put in a minced clove of garlic for a bit of flavour. I've added it to my regular list of recipies!
