I came up with this after visit to a Greek Restaurant and having a wonderful meal of Greek Roast Chicken. I wanted to make it at home. This is a pretty close second.
It's a great dinner when you are going to be home all day or if you aren't afraid to leave dinner in oven.

I found Cavenders at a gourmet food shop here in West Michigan but my girls friend ( who has used it for YEARS) can get it in her local grocery store near Detroit. They do sell it on line at:
I am going to order it since I bought the last of it and haven't been able to find it since.
You will probably be as surprised as I was when you see it is from Arkansas!
If you are anywhere near Naples Fl. I'd try a store there. I think there is a large Greek Community there.

I have tried many other Greek Seasonings and this is the one we like the BEST by far.
I hope you can find it it really is GREAT!
