Let’s Make Greek Chicken:

  1. Add the garlic, oregano, thyme, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, pepper and oil in a bowl and stir to combine
  2. Place the chicken breast in a shallow dish or in a sealable bag and pour the marinade over top. Move the chicken around to make sure it gets completely coated
  3. Let the chicken sit in the marinade for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours (in a sealed container in the fridge) before cooking
  4. When ready to cook, take chicken out of the marinade and gently pat with paper towel. Season both sides with salt and pepper and cook with your desired method – internal temp should be 165′
    1. Preheat grill to 425′. Once grill is hot, grill the chicken for about 7-9 minutes per side. The time will depend on the thickness of your chicken breast. Remove from grill when the internal temperature reads 155-160 and let rest on a plate covered with foil. This will bring the temperature up to 165′ and will keep the chicken nice and juicy
    2. Preheat oven to 375′. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat and add in cooking oil of choice. Sear the chicken on both sides for 2-3 minutes and then transfer the skillet to the pre-heated oven. Cook an additional 10-15 minutes. Cooking time varies depending on the size of the chicken breasts. Internal temperature needs to read 165′
