George Psarias (Papa G) is back again for Tasty Tuesdays with this delicious Greek chicken dish. George often appears on national and Greek TV cooking traditional and modern Greek dishes. He owns three multi- award winning The Olive Tree Restaurants in Leeds.
George regularly writes for magazines and newspapers.
8 Chicken pieces (thighs, drumsticks or a mixture of the two), skin removed
2 medium onions, peeled and sliced
4 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
Juice and zest of one lime
1 tbsp dried oregano or leaves from 3-4 sprigs of fresh oregano
2-3 bay leaves
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1x400g tin tomatoes
2 tbps tomato puree diluted in 150ml water or chicken stock
1 tsp cinnamon
A small handful of flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
Preheat the oven to 180
Place the chicken on a roasting tray with the onions, garlic, lime juice, oregano, bay leaves and season with salt and pepper.
Liquidise the tin tomatoes or break down with a fork and scatter over the chicken. Mix in the tomato puree and sprinkle the cinnamon over the chicken pieces.
Place in the oven and cook for 1 hour. Add some water if it gets too dry. Check it is ready with a skewer or sharp knife.
Sprinkle with the chopped parsley and serve with roast potatoes or a crisp salad.
