Mediterranean Chicken

  • 3-5 chicken breasts, thin cut
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt 
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste 
  • 1/3 cup olive oil 
  • 1 lemon, juiced 
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced 
  • 1 tablespoon paprika 
  • 1 tablespoon lemon pepper 
  • salt & pepper

1. Put yogurt, tomato paste, olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, paprika, & lemon pepper in a mixing bowl. 

2. Mix all ingredients together. 

 3. Salt & pepper the chicken on both side. 

4. Coat both sides of each piece of chicken with the marinade. Cover & let sit in the fridge for 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.

 5. Grill on medium high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or longer if using a full size chicken breast. 

6. Top with fresh basil & serve.

 7. Top chicken with garlic basil spread. Serve this dish with orzo rice pilaf, pita bread, & hummus.

I bought some garlic basil spread at a farmers market & was determined to come home & cook some Mediterranean chicken. You can make the spread & hummus from scratch or purchase it at the store. 


 There are many herbs that can be added to this dish, parsley, basil, or curry would be the best fit. I used a thin cut chicken breast but a regular chicken breast or thigh would work as well.
