From the Test Kitchen

In this case, it’s all Greek to us, chefs. In this recipe, you’ll be exploring yet another world cuisine. Feta, Kalamata olives (from the southern Peloponnese), cucumbers, lemon and parsley are some of the cuisine’s hallmarks. Here, you’ll use them all in addition to a signature spice blend, which includes cardamom and Greek oregano. Both of these spices have been used in Greek cooking (and even perfumes) since ancient times. Their mellow, aromatic quality complements the rich succulence of the braised chicken.
