The first time we dined at this popular Mediterranean restaurant, this entree was not on the menu. On a subsequent visit, however, Chef Maha described the dish and prepared it for us, saying it was going to be added soon. It was so delicious, with just a hint of lemon and wonderfully heady with oregano, that we asked her for the recipe. It's a superb way to serve chicken.

Ingredients

Vegetable Stacks:

Directions

Place the chicken cubes in a shallow dish. Whisk together the lemon juice, wine, olive oil, oregano, salt, if using, and white pepper. Pour over the chicken. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Spread the potatoes in a shallow roasting pan. Roast for 15 minutes. Add the chicken with its marinade. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover, stir the potato-chicken mixture, and continue to bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes before dividing among 4 heated dinner plates. Serve with a Vegetable Stack alongside.

Vegetable Stacks:

Place the carrot slices and squash strips in a vegetable steamer over simmering water. Cover and steam for 2 minutes. Add the snow peas to the steamer and continue to steam for another 1 to 2 minutes, until all the vegetables are crisp-tender.

Divide the snow peas among the 4 dinner plates, arranging closely together lengthwise to form a flat base. Arrange the carrot slices on top of the snow peas and top with the strips of squash in the same direction as the snow peas. Serve hot.
