How to Make Grilled Greek Chicken

There are only 3 simple ingredients in this Greek marinade – Greek dressing, lemon, and honey. Whisk everything together and pour over the chicken. Let the chicken hang out in the refrigerator for several hours to overnight. When you are ready to cook the chicken, remove it from the marinade and cook.

I used boneless skinless chicken breasts with the marinade. This will work with any cut of chicken – tenders, breasts, thighs. You can also use bone-in chicken. Just make sure to cook the chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 165ºF.

How to Grill Chicken without a Grill

We grilled the chicken on our charcoal grill. Don’t have a grill? No worries. You can make this chicken inside. Pan sear the chicken for 3 or 4 minutes per side. Place the chicken on a baking sheet and bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes.
