Greek cuisine is a Mediterranean cuisine. Contemporary Greek cookery makes wide use of vegetables, olive oil, grains, fish, wine, and meat (white and red, including lamb, poultry, rabbit and pork). Other important ingredients include olives, cheese, eggplant (aubergine), zucchini (courgette), lemon juice, vegetables, herbs, bread and yoghurt. The most commonly used grain is wheat; barley is also used. Common dessert ingredients include nuts, honey, fruits, and filo pastry.

Tzatziki (English pronunciation: /tætˈsiːki/, /tsætˈsiːki/, or /tɑːtˈsiːki/; Greek: τζατζίκι [dzaˈdzici] or [dʒaˈdʒici] or in Cypriot Greek: τταλαττούρι ) is a Greek sauce served with grilled meats or as a dip. Tzatziki is made of strained yogurt (usually from sheep or goat milk) mixed with cucumbers, garlic, salt, olive oil, red wine vinegar, and sometimes dill. American versions may include lemon juice, mint, or parsley.
Carl Butler writes: I love to cook and eat chicken. This is a variation which occurs frequently in my kitchen. In Greece they often prepares these all-in-one dishes in large baking ovens. But I know from experience that a most ordinary kitchen oven gives an equally delicious result.
