Greek Style Garlic Chicken Breast
This recipe was passed down through my family for years. If you're looking for a great tasting, tender chicken breast, this is what you're looking for - Greek style.
- Serves: 4 persons
- 4skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
- 1cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1lemon, juiced
- 2teaspoons crushed garlic
- 1teaspoon salt
- 1½ teaspoons black pepper
- ⅓teaspoon paprika
Step 1Cut 3 slits in each chicken breast to allow marinade to penetrate. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, and paprika for about 30 seconds. Place chicken in a large bowl, and pour marinade over. Using your hands, work marinade into chicken. Cover, and refrigerate overnight.
Step 2Preheat grill for medium heat, and lightly oil grate.
Step 3Cook chicken on grill until meat is no longer pink and juices run clear.
