Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 lemons, juiced
6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional for extra kick)
3 sprigs fresh rosemary, chopped
3 sprigs fresh oregano, chopped
3 sprigs fresh thyme, chopped


Cut 3 slits in each chicken breast to allow marinade to penetrate.

In a small bowl whisk together the marinate ingredients for about 30 seconds.

Place chicken in a large ziplock bag and pour over the marinate.

Massage marinate thoroughly into the chicken.

Refrigerate for at least 1 - 2 hours and preferably overnight.

Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil grate.

Cook chicken on grill until meat is no longer pink and juices run clear, approximately 5 minutes per side depending on your grill heat.

Serve with either greek style rice or greek style roasted potatoes.
