green chicken lemon artichoke tomato paleo gluten free low carb I found this recipe at Beauty and the Foodie, a great food blog that I found recently. Check it out if you get a chance. I made a couple of changes to their recipe like using boneless chicken breasts and kalamata olives for example.

Start to finish, this delicious Greek chicken bake took less than an hour. And it really could not have been easier. Serve topped with some crumbled feta if that’s your thang or some lemon slices for some extra zing. Yum-may!
