This Greek style casserole is the perfect combination of bold, Mediterranean flavours. As the dish is low carb and high protein and fat, it is perfect for those following a keto diet too! The chicken is cooked with the salty, creamy feta, herby pesto and pitted green olives. This dish packs so much flavour that it is great served with a simple side salad or, if you aren't watching your carbs, some Greek style potatoes would be perfect.


I love how easy this dish is to throw together. Because the flavours speak for themselves, it really is a case of throwing it all together and letting the oven do all of the work!

Let the bold flavours of the fresh ingredients do all of the talking and serve with a simple side salad.

The flavours of tangy feta, salty green olives and herby pesto will transport you straight to the Mediterranean, whatever the weather!

Perfect for sharing, this really is home style cooking at its best, without adding in too many calories!
