Honey Dijon Greek Chicken


We came up with this recipe to use our new grape seed oil we brought on our Alabama Wine Trail.  Chicken Legs loves Greek food with all the lemon and great spices and we thought the grape seed oil would work well with those flavors.  We marinated the chicken all day and then grilled it for dinner.  The chicken smelled fantastic while we were cooking it - the oregano was so fragrant.  It turned out great.  It had a nice tanginess from the lemon juice, which made Chicken Legs very happy.  We both really enjoyed the chicken.  It was a nice change to our usual grilled chicken and I enjoyed getting to use our grape seed oil.

1/4 cup grape seed oil
1/4 cup lemon juice

1 Tbsp oregano
1 tsp paprika
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

2 boneless, skinless chicken breast

Pound the chicken breast to an even thickness and set aside.  Combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken.  Let marinate in refrigerator for 4-8 hours.  Grill approximately 10-12 minutes, until done.

  5. Seriously, is there anything better than grilled chicken? It's the perfect food! I like your Greek influences.

    This would make a great sandwich too with some feta cheese and red onion. Have any leftovers you can send me? ;)
