This is an easy dish with a Greek flair. If you are not into smoking foods as I am either the oven or the grill is fine as well. I removed the skin after smoking the breasts and finished them on the grill with the baste. If you prefer leaving the skin on that works. Boneless breasts would work but I like the added depth and moisture that bone in meat brings particularly when slow smoking. The avgolemono sauce will be thick. If it is too thick for your liking thin it down with some more lemon juice and whole milk if necessary. I served the meal with grilled asparagus, butter lettuce, Spanakopita and Tzatziki. With all the acid in this meal a wine with some degree of acid is in order. I chose Viansa Sonoma Valley Reserve 2010 Pinot Grigio. It has 10% Chardonnay which breaks the acid just enough to work well and compliment the avgolemono sauce.
