The Chew March 22 2016 Recap
With My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 premiering in theaters, the hosts of The Chew were inspired to share their favorite Greek family-style recipes.

The Chew: Yogurt-Marinated Chicken Kebobs Recipe
Daphne Oz knows all about cooking and enjoying Greek-style dishes. Her recipe for Yogurt-Marinated Chicken Kebobs is not only easy to put together, but a great way to get even the pickiest eaters to wolf down a healthy meal.
The Chew: Moussaka Recipe
Michael Symon is part of a Greek family, so he and Nia Vardalos were able to laugh about everything that makes Greek tradition so much fun. Because food is essential in Greek families, what better way to show that off than with a traditional Moussaka? This casserole can easily be made without the meat if you’d prefer it that way. But when served just as Michael Symon prepared it, this recipe is an absolute delight.
The Chew: Apple Rose Pie Recipe
Speaking of delightful recipes, Clinton Kelly then explained how a Pinterest recipe inspired him to combine crafting and cooking. The recipe for apple roses has been pinned hundreds of thousands of times, and Clinton found a way to turn them into an absolutely stunning and delicious Apple Rose Pie. The finished product looks so beautiful, you almost won’t want to eat it. “Almost” being the key word there!
The Chew: Lemon, Ricotta, Yogurt Cake With Carrot Preserves
Finally, Carla Hall shared a Greek-inspired dessert recipe of her own. Her Lemon, Ricotta, Yogurt Cake with Carrot Preserves combines light, creamy cake with, as Clinton put it, candy made with carrots!
