greek marinade for chicken

Ingredients
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 2 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
    • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
    • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
    • 1/2 teaspoon bay leaf
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Preparation:

    Combine all ingredients and mix well. Use this marinade on all cuts of lamb. Plan on marinating chops and small cuts for about 4 to 5 hours. Large cuts (double recipe) like leg of lamb should be marinated for 8 hours to overnight.

Instructions
  1. Mix all the ingredients, minus the chicken breast in a bowl. Place the chicken breasts in a dish and pour the marinade over them, turning them in the marinade to ensure that they are completely coated. Cover the dish with a lid or plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least an hour.
  2. Place the chicken on a hot grill and cook, turning once, until the meat has an internal temperature of 165F. Grilling boneless skinless chicken breast takes about 15-20 minutes, but can vary depending on the size and thickness of the meat. Remove from the grill and let the chicken breast rest for a few minutes before serving to allow the juices to draw back into the centre of the meat.
