Greek Grilled Chicken
Updated: Jan 30
Mmm... All things Greek!
This meal brings Josh and I back to our honeymoon, cruising around the Greek Isles... Oh, what I would pay to be back there now.
In the mean time, we LOVE this authentic Greek salad (deconstructed for the kiddos, though they are starting to dig lettuce):
~Marinated lemon herb chicken bites
~Homemade roasted red pepper hummus
~Olives, cukes, maters, stuffed grape leaves, feta and tzatziki sauce
If you haven’t noticed yet, I’m not a fan of strict measures....
1 lb chicken cut up into 1 inch pieces. It cooks up faster, creates more surface space for that delicious marinade and is ready to go for the kids.
Juice of 1 lemon
A few tablespoons of EVOO
A few tablespoons of red wine vinegar
1 tbsp each: oregano, thyme, rosemary
salt to taste
Get a plastic bag and put it in a measuring cup. This is just my little trick. It holds all of the marinade in the plastic bag without making a mess.
Grind spices in mortar and pestle. I hate when I’m eating chicken and get a huge piece of rosemary. It’s like a toothpick in my mouth!
Throw into the bag along with the liquids.
Throw in salt to taste and chicken.
Marinate for at least one hour and then sauté!
