Greek Chicken

This is quite easy and quick dish to prepare. You could either put it in skewers and grill or just cook it on a skillet indoors. Pair it up with some Lemon Rice, Tzatziki, Roasted Potatoes, Greek Salad, Hummus and Pita bread and you've got yourself a feast :). Or just chopped it up and put it over Greek Salad and serve with some pita bread as a light meal.


Greek Chicken

Serves: 2
Preparation and Marinating Time: 35 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast - sliced into 1/4 inch thick slices
1 tablespoon garlic – pressed or finely chopped
2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon dry oregano
Salt to taste
Oil spray for cooking

Directions:
  1. Combine chicken with all above ingredients, mix well and let marinate for about 30 minutes.
  2. Spray a large skillet with oil and heat over medium to high heat.
  3. Once the pan is hot; place chicken pieces keeping about 1 inch space in between each piece and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes per side until it is cooked through and browned nicely. You might need to cook in two different batches as you do not want to over crowd the pan. Try not to move the pieces too much while cooking to get even brown color.
  4. Once cooked through, transfer to a plate and serve hot.
