It Tastes Like Chicken (Part 1)



It Tastes Like Chicken (Part 1)

It’s no wonder why chicken is the most important weapon in any college cook’s arsenal; it’s versatile, cheap, crowd-friendly, and widely available at grocery stores large and small. Unfortunately, far too many people have become accustomed to cooking and eating chicken dishes that just “taste like chicken.” My goal is to prove to you, the reader, that making healthy, affordable, and great-tasting chicken dishes is very within reach.

 

Part 1 of our 3 part series chicken-related articles will showcase the dish “Greek Chicken,” invented by myself and college roommate, Aaron Belson.
