This Greek Chicken Marinade is perfect for making tender, juicy Greek flavored chicken on the grill, in a skillet, or in the baked oven. With only a few simple ingredients it packs the chicken full of flavor and helps to tenderize the meat. We love it on it’s own, or in salads, wraps, and gyros!
Greek Style Chicken
Greek food has been a favorite of mine since I visited a little family-run place that opened in our mall when I was a teenager. The flavors are incredible, and almost all the dishes are healthy and delicious!
Since the love affair started, I have made all sorts of different takes on Greek food, like this easy Crock Pot Greek Chicken, one of my favorites, these Greek Chicken Bites which can be turned into Loaded Greek Wraps, and of course, the Greek Layer Dip (heaven people!)
All of these use this Greek Seasoning which is a staple in my kitchen. I make it in big batches and keep it on hand to use on everything from meats, to veggies, to potatoes. If you haven’t tried it, do it now!
This Greek Chicken Marinade uses my favorite seasoning, in combination with a few other simple greek inspired flavors to create chicken that is tender, juicy and just dripping with delicious flavor!
2 lbs chicken breast boneless, skinless
1/4 cup olive oil extra virgin
1/4 cup lemon juice fresh
2 tbsp greek seasoning
2 cloves garlic pressed
To make marinade, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, greek seasoning, and garlic.
Poke chicken all over with a fork. Place the chicken in a dish or zip top bag and pour the marinade over the chicken to cover completely. Refrigerate for up to 4 hours, with a minimum of 30 minutes.
Heat the grill to medium heat and brush with oil to prevent sticking. Place chicken on the grill and cook for 4-6 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Cook to an internal temperature of 165°F.
Once done, remove chicken from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Then serve warm. Enjoy!
You can use any cut of chicken in this recipe, however the cooking time will change depending on the cut that you use.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the refrigerator or in the freezer for up to a month.
