This perfectly seasoned Greek-inspired chicken is lemony, garlicky, and altogether fuss-free! You are going to love how easy it is to make. ♡
This Greek chicken is a new family favorite. I mean WOW! It’s ridic-u-lousy deee-lish!
This recipe came right on time too. I mean, it’s now January, and there’s nothing else that can help me through the winter blues like a nice summer-inspired recipe. This Greek Chicken did just that.
The marinade is versatile. You can add cayenne pepper for heat, or if you don’t have parsley, feel free to swap for cilantro.
Greek Chicken Ingredients
|Olive Oil||Use nice high-quality olive oil—as it will aid in adding a nice olive taste and buttery texture.|
|Zest and Juice of One Lemon||Both will add a nice bright and tangy flavor.|
|Garlic||Either fresh garlic or dried garlic will work just fine in this recipe.|
|Herbs and Spices||Like oregano, parsley, smoked paprika, sea salt, and coarse black pepper.|
|Chicken||You will need one pound of thin-sliced chicken breast fillets.|
|Feta Cheese||Is the backbone is giving this dish its Greek flare. Look for dry, crumbly feta—none of the creamy stuff.|
I find that marinating the chicken for at least thirty-minutes deepens the citrus flavor.
Here are some ideas on how you can cook this Greek-inspired Chicken.
- Throw it on the barbecue.
- Pan-fry it.
- Bake it.
- Put it in the Instant Pot ( keep in mind to sear both sides golden brown before pressure cooking it).
I decided to pan-fry it and it was perfect.
How to serve Greek Chicken with lemon and feta
There are so many ways one could enjoy this epic Greek Chicken.
Over a bed of salad.
After building a cold crisp salad with romaine lettuce, thin-sliced red onion, and juicy tomatoes—topped the salad with the chicken. Keep the chicken whole, cut it into thin fajita-style strips, or dice into bite-size pieces.
Alongside buttery rice or quinoa.
Keep whole and serve right along a hot and cozy corner of buttery rice or quinoa. Don’t forget a nice yogurt side dish to accompany the rice.
