Jump to Recipe

Sarah- Hey everyone! I’m back with the brand new different recipe. When we lived in Connecticut, we used to go to an authentic greek restaurant. They had a yummy dish that I always ordered. When we moved to Tennessee, I check if there is an authentic greek restaurant available near by but sadly there was none. So I started searching the web for authentic greek food recipe, but all of them sadly included alcohol. So I came up with my version of Chicken Tigania.

Pork or Chicken?

Chicken Tigania is usually made in pork, but I don’t eat pork so I made it in chicken. The restaurant I went to always made it in chicken too. That’s why I used to order it.
