Mediterranean Chicken

Escape to the Mediterranean with the flavors of this month's special dish. Your dinner will start off with our house garlic bread and either a cup of homemade soup of the day or a salad. The main entree is an explosion of flavor that includes a sauteed chicken breast cooked with mushrooms, artichoke hearts and white wine. It is then served over rice pilaf and finished off with a sprinkling of feta cheese.


Suggested Wine: Makedonikos White
