Mediterranean Grilled Chicken

Mediterranean Grilled Chicken is jaw-droppingly juicy, tender, and flavorful. My one-of-a-kind marinade takes grilling to a whole new level!

  • In a small bowl whisk together the marinade ingredients and scoop out 1/4 cup to baste chicken. Pour remaining marinade over chicken in a plastic resealable bag. Squeeze the air out of bag and seal. Massage chicken with your hands and allow to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Heat your grill (350°F) or grill pan over medium high heat. Spray with cooking spray and add chicken to cook.
  • For entire breasts, grill 2 minutes then move a quarter turn to create crosshatch grill marks and grill 2 more minutes. Baste with reserved marinade. Turn over repeat grilling to create grill marks and baste again before taking out of pan.
  • For really thick breasts: if sliced horizontally, cuts grilling time on each side down 2 minutes total SO 2 minutes each side, 4 minutes total time. Thighs 4 minutes each side. Allow to rest 5 minutes before cutting. Serve with a salad or over rice.
