Grilled Chicken Recipe - Mediterranean Style

The following grilled chicken recipe is quick and easy to prepare, utilises some wonderful Mediterranean flavours and is healthy to boot!

Whether this grilled chicken recipe is cooked on your indoor grill, griddle pan or outside on your barbecue grill, it is equally as delicious.

Grilled Chicken with Rosemary, Garlic and Extra Virgin Olive Oil

4 Large Boneless Chicken Thigh Fillets
2 Sprigs Fresh Rosemary (or 2 tsp dried if you can't get fresh)
2 Cloves Garlic
4 Tblsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tblsp Balsamic Vinegar
Sea Salt & Black Pepper to taste

Lightly pound the chicken fillets with a mallet to an even thickness, it cooks a lot quicker this way as well.

Lay the fillets into a baking dish or marinating tray and season with Sea Salt and Black Pepper.

Sprinkle over Rosemary leaves, crushed Garlic, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar and gently rub into the meat.

If you are in a hurry you can grill the chicken immediately or leave to marinate for up to a day in the fridge. It really depends on the depth of flavour you would like, the longer you leave it, the more intense the flavours will become.
