This Chicken Zorba recipe is my nephew’s favorite dinner. It’s a recipe from a Sainsbury’s card from the early ’90s. I have to say, I understand why it’s his favorite dinner. The chicken is so tender (due to marinating it overnight) and flavorful. Also, the hummus and Greek yogurt mixture is heaven!
