Greek-Style Chicken or Shrimp Summer Saute


This saturday I will be the guest chef at a new farmer’s market in town-the Valleydale Farmers market in Birmingham, Alabama. The director said they will be selling a lot of squash, zucchini, onions, tomatoes and red bell pepper so I thought why not come up with a simple, healthy recipe with all of these summer vegetables and cook with chicken or shrimp. I decided to flavor it Greek-Style with fresh oregano, Italian parsley, feta cheese and kalamata olives. Come see me at 10 a.m. See Valleydale Farmer’s Market.
