greek chicken cutlets and tzatziki

May 22, 2013 § 26 Comments

Here is a delicious Greek chicken recipe for you to make.  I have been able to find chicken cutlets at most markets these day.  If you can not find cutlets you may simply slice a chicken breast horizontally into three flat slices.  You could pound them out a little more with a meat mallet if you like.  Served with tzatziki,  spanokópita, mache’ salad and greek olives.



  • 4 chicken cutlets
  • a dusting of all purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and smashed
  • salt and pepper
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons of large capers, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons of hot water


Lightly pat both sides of chicken in flour.  In a large skillet, heat the olive oil with the smashed garlic over medium high heat and cook until the garlic is aromatic.  Add the chicken and fry until golden.  Turn the chicken over, season with salt and pepper and continue to cook other side until golden.  Turn again, season and squeeze in the lemon juice, add the capers, parsley and hot water.  When it starts to bubble put a lid on the pan and cook for a few minutes.  Turn off the heat and serve right away.

  • 16 ounces of full fat plain greek yogurt (I really like Fage)
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled and grated
  • 1 handful of dill, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt

Using your hands, after you peel and grate the cucumber, squeeze out the excessive juice.  Place in a bowl and mix well with all the other ingredients.  Taste and add salt to your liking.
