Greek Chicken

I purchased Nigella's How to Eat Cookbook in April, as this has been hailed as the best of Nigella's books so far, but have only cooked twice from this book. I can proudly say I am the owner of Nigella's "How to Eat", Nigella's "How to be a Domestic Goddess", Nigella's "Feasts", Nigella's Forever Summer" and Nigella's "Kitchen". I plan on purchasing"Nigellissima" in September when it is released and will be trying lots of lovely recipes that i'm sure the book will contain.
Anyway, back to "How to Eat"  I remember recalling a recipe in her Kitchen book called "Greek Chicken" which Nigella stated was a variation of the recipe in her How to Eat cookbook.  I thought I would try this out, and must say I was pleased with the results of this low fat dinner.

I first started seasoning the Greek yoghurt with mixed herbs, chilli powder and salt (2 tbsp). I initially added one tbsp of salt but found the yoghurt had a sour aftertaste but the second tbsp of salt made the yoghurt taste better.

I then added the chopped cucumber and spring onions to the mixture and stirred. 

I seasoned the chicken using mixed herbs, black pepper and garlic powder, and then slit the breasts to make the chicken quicker to cook (I was hungry!)

The finished product, I ate my Greek chicken with jacket potato and salad with the yoghurt mixture topping the jacket potato. 
A variation of this recipe is available on Nigella's website Greek chicken.
I am entering this picture to a blog hop which is guest hosted this month by but is run by the fabulous Maison Cupcakes There are usually lots of lovely variations of Nigella's recipes on these blog hops, so have a look at the lovely pictures.
