Grilled Greek Chicken Recipe



Combine all the marinade ingredients in a large ziplock bag. Seal and massage the bag to combine all the ingredients.

Add the chicken to the bag turning to coat. Marinate for 4-24 hours. Turn the bag a few times while marinating.

Preheat gas grill to 400F.

Pour the marinated chicken pieces into a large strainer to remove the excess marinade. Thread chicken pieces onto the skewers alternating with peppers and onions. Grill until the chicken is cooked through, about 4 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.

Marinade works great for any kind of chicken pieces from whole boneless, skinless to bone-in thighs and legs. Adjust grilling time to allow for larger pieces
