Greek Chicken Breast & Yarithes Scorthates

A new combination special to enjoy for the entire month of August!

This pairing of tender chicken breast with succulent garlic prawns brings forth great favors of lemon and garlic. The chicken is marinated in a wonderful variety of Greek herbs and spices, grilled and then topped with our signature lemon Greek sauce, while the prawns are prepared in a delicious garlic wine sauce. Your entree is served with your choice of rice pilaf or potatoes and begins with our house garlic bread and a small Greek salad to enjoy.
