One Pot Greek Chicken & Lemon Rice

One Pot Greek Chicken & Lemon Rice

This is not an authentic Greek dish (as far as I know!) but it is made using classic Greek ingredients. The beauty of this is that it is all made in one pot / pan. Cooking the rice with the chicken on top adds extra flavour to the rice because the chicken juices get soaked up by the rice.
