Girlfriends in the Kitchen - Greek Chicken Baked in Yogurt

How it works:
Isn’t cooking a lot more enjoyable when you get to cook for somebody or cook with somebody? I love cooking with my husband and I especially love cooking with my girlfriends! It’s just a soulful experience being in the kitchen with the ladies.
Since I love cooking with my girlfriends, I am encouraging all of YOU to start your own Girlfriends in the Kitchen group.  We try to cook one dish recipes that you could use with your group or you are more than welcome to create your own recipes to use. Everyone is delegated an ingredient to bring. You all make the dish and then get to take it home to bake later.
*Pick a group of 5 but no more than 10 of your cherished friends
*Pick a place, date, time & frequency per month
*Decide on your recipe & delegate ingredients to each friend
*Everyone needs to bring a casserole dish & an apron
*Cost is FREE
*Children are welcome
I encourage all of you to start your own group TODAY! I love all of the wonderful ladies in my life and treasure all the moments that I get to spend with them. I hope all of you create some wonderful memories with your “Girlfriends in the Kitchen”.
