There is just something magical about the simple Greek/Mediterranean flavour combo with olive oil, lemon, garlic and oregano especially when used in a marinade for chicken, pork, or lamb! This Greek style grilled chicken is as easy to make as marinating it for 30 minutes to overnight and then grilling it! That’s less than 15 minutes of active time! My favourite way to cook this marinated chicken is on the grill which adds a nice smokiness to it and you can also pan-sear it, broil it, or oven roast it so you have lots of options! This Mediterranean grilled chicken is fabulous all by itself and you can use it in pitas, sandwiches, salads, etc.
