Greek Chicken Breast & Yarithes Scorthates

A very tasty way to ring in the New Year!

This pairing of tender chicken breast with succulent garlic prawns brings forth great flavors of lemon and garlic. The chicken is marinated in our own wonderful variety of Greek herbs and spices, grilled over an open flame and then topped with our signature lemon Greek sauce. The prawns are prepared in a delicious garlic wine sauce. Your entree is served with your choice of rice pilaf or potatoes & begins with our house garlic bread and a small Greek salad to enjoy. 


Suggested Wine: Makedonikos White

Kali Orexi! (Bon Apetite!)
