Chicken in tomato and wine
This chicken in tomato and wine dish was served to us in a little Cretan village with some french fries and a simple salad. It tasted exactly like the way my mother used to make it, simple and delicious. I went to the kitchen and asked the cook if she would give me the recipe — I wrote it on the back of a small piece of paper. So glad I did!

Rice and lentil pilaf is a simple but hearty dish that can be eaten as a main meal with a dollop of greek yogurt or tzatziki, or as a side dish. I personally love it with a couple of fried eggs.
