Greek Grilled Chicken Recipe

Greek Grilled Chicken
This recipe for Greek grilled chicken is an easy meal to prepare for summer. The chicken is marinated with ingredients such a lemon juice, red wine vinegar, garlic and fresh herbs. The chicken is then grilled on an outdoor grill. If you don’t have an outdoor grill, I would recommend using an indoor grill pan instead. A lot of the flavor in this recipe comes from fresh rosemary, thyme and garlic. All that you need to go with this delicious chicken is a good sidedish. Enjoy.
