Greek Chicken

I love Greek food.  A lot.

I even based my Honeymoon on my love of the cuisine.

Greek Food Honeymoon Greek Salad

I swear there’s a salad under that hunk of feta ;-).

But what I love most about Greek food is just how fresh and flavorful it can be.  There’s no need for a ton of processed ingredients.  And my food motto these days is “keep it simple.”

So I give you Greek Chicken.

Due to rain, my grilled Greek Chicken became baked and broiled Greek Chicken, but it still came out great all the same. I prepared a batch for the week to serve over Greek salad, rice, and alongside grilled (or now soon to be roasted) veggies.

You simply marinate the chicken for several hours (or overnight).

And then bake or grill it up!
