Grilled Greek Chicken

Grilled Greek Chicken (gluten-free) | The Baking Beauties
I’m always looking for new ways to serve up our supper, and I know I will be making this Grilled Greek Chicken again. This chicken is flavoured in a Greek-inspired marinade. If you can allow the chicken to marinade for a few hours, or overnight, you will have some fantastic flavoured chicken. This is perfect for the upcoming barbecue season. This chicken grills up in minutes, and is fantastic served along-side the Greek Quinoa Salad, which can be made in advance.

    Ooh! This looks like such a simple and flavorful recipe!! I have all the ingredients on hand, so I just may defrost some chicken to make this! My Mom makes a slightly similar marinade, but also adds some plain greek yogurt to it!!
