Greek Chicken – Recipe #2

Busy Woman Pre-Roasted Chicken

 This Greek Chicken is Amazing! It’s hard to believe we are using a store bought pre-roasted chicken.  Use just part of the chicken or if you are preparing for the whole family use the whole thing. The most convenient part is that you can buy the pre roasted bird from the store several days before and store in the fridge.  It is super easy to carve up cold.  This recipe literally takes less than 15 minutes and that includes the cooking time!  Your tastebuds will be delighted  when this chicken is transformed from ordinary to extraordinary!
