Mediterranean Chicken

This is an absolutely quick and easy dinner to throw together when you have friends coming over. They would probably think that you had taken half a day to put this together.

Serve it on Sunday as well which means you would have time to put your feet up, have a cup of coffee and enjoy your favourite magazine. Let the oven to all the work!
