Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 10 mins
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Greece
Keyword: chicken, feta cheese
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 medium yellow onions, sliced
  • 8 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh oregano leaves
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • Juice of 1/2 of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup pitted Greek olives
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese chunks
  • Lemon slices for garnish

Instructions

  • Pat the chicken pieces dry and season both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the oil and butter over medium-high heat in a Dutch oven or other heavy-bottomed pot. Working in batches, place four of the chicken thighs in the pan, skin-side down, and fry for 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is browned and releases from the bottom of the pot.
  • Turn the chicken and brown the other side for 3-4 minutes. Remove from the pot and set aside. Repeat with remaining four chicken thighs.
  • Add the sliced onions to the pot and saute for 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic and oregano, followed immediately by the white wine.
  • While the wine is bubbling in the pot, use a wooden spoon to scrape up any brown bits attached to the bottom of the pot.
  • Return the browned chicken to the pot skin-side up and nestle the pieces into the onion mixture. Squeeze the lemon juice over the top.
  • Cover the pot and turn the heat down to medium-low. Braise the chicken for 40 minutes, or until cooked through.
  • Remove the cooked chicken from the pot and stir the olives and feta into the onion mixture.
  • Transfer the onion mixture onto a serving platter, then place the chicken pieces on top. Garnish with lemon slices and additional oregano if desired.
