    A deliciously light BBQ chicken recipe bursting with Greek flavours. I serve it with sliced tomatoes, feta cheese and pitta bread.

    2. Preheat barbecue for high heat.
    3. Lightly oil the cooking grate. Place chicken on the barbecue and discard the marinade. Cook chicken pieces up to 15 minutes per side, until juices run clear. Smaller pieces will not take as long.

    I am a caterer and made this for a wedding rehearsal dinner a few months ago. It was a huge hit! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and pounded them so that they were uniform in thickness. I marinated the chicken for 2 days & grilled them about 3 1/2 minutes per side. I garnished the platter with lemon halves, roasted heads of garlic & sprigs of fresh rosemary. My only suggestion is to be careful with the fresh oregano...it is very pungent, so don't get carried away!!  -  31 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This is incredible! I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and placed them in the marinade before I froze them. I then thawed over night. I grilled the chicken and it came out perfect. I used a teaspoon each of the dried herbs. The chicken had a great strong lemony taste, plus the hint of the garlic and herbs gave it great kick. I cooked my chicken about 10 minutes per side and they turned out perfect. I can't wait to make again.  -  28 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
