Grilled Mediterranean Chicken Recipe

Sharing is caring!

I don’t know about you, but I love Mediterranean food. I could probably eat it every day.

I have a weakness for hummus, actually.

I had some pepperonis, olives and sun-dried tomato basil spread that I wanted to use in different recipes. I thought a grilled Mediterranean chicken recipe would be perfect. We were headed over to our friend Amanda’s house to let the kids play and they were grilling hamburgers. I offered to bring chicken that we could throw on the grill.

This time of year is the perfect time to grill, and I love cooking things in foil packets. Easy recipes like this are perfect for summertime when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen.

Take it out of the foil packet and plate it up.

We served this with an easy spinach, strawberry and feta salad with a raspberry vinaigrette. It was what was in the fridge. Super simple!
