Braised Greek Chicken

Author Notes: A graduate school friend of mine used to serve a version of this meal over pasta. I've tweaked it over the years and while it's still good with noodles, I love it most as a simple, one-pot chicken dish, with its unexpected flavor combinations, on cold, wet Northwest evenings. Many thanks to Phil Memmer for the inspiration.eggnation
