Greek Style Marinated Chicken While summer is still hot-and-heavy, I’ve been trying to come up with fun and easy marinades for grilling to spice up any weeknight. This Greek Style Marinated Chicken is perfect and it goes with pretty much everything! I love serving it with this simple Greek Salad (aka Horiatiki) for a fresh side dish. If you are wanting something a little more filling, try making my Greek-Style Lemon Potatoes

  1. I make this all the time. This is our favorite greek chicken recipe I make for my husband & myself. It tastes great the day after on salads too!

  2. 5 stars
    We made this last night & it was AMAZING! We let it marinated for 2.5 hours & it still came out great. My husband was raving over it too.

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! It’s raining today so I ended up grilling inside on my Staub grill pan and it turned out perfect! I increased the marinade a little and used 2 lbs of chicken so we can eat it all week. Delicious!

  4. Absolutely LOVE this marinade! I often use it to meal prep lunches for the week and I am never disappointed after having it 4 days in a row! I love it on chicken thighs but have also tried it on lamb kabobs and that was delish!
