Grilled Chicken and Vegetables

 I wanted to go Mediterranean with this grilling. So I chose chicken, peppers, potatoes and feta. Of course with lots of Greek Oregano.  The beauty of Mediterranean cuisine is that it is very simple and yet very very delicious. You don’t have to labour over the hot stove for hours, no need to gather lots of spices and herbs. Just a few simple ingredients, a few simple steps and voila, dinner is served!

Join me at my table today for this flavourful Mediterranean meal.

Here’s how I made it.

Grilled Chicken and Vegetables
1 lb. bonelss, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
2-3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup olive oil
2 tbsp oregano, crushed between your palms to release the flavour
1 each red, orange and yellow pepper, medium sized, cubed
3 russet potatoes, washed and thinly sliced

How to
Marinate peppers and potatoes separately using oil, salt,pepper and oregano for about an hour.
Marinate chicken as well. Overnight is the best.
Preheat the grill.
Skewer chicken or just leave the cubes as it is and grill chicken and peppers and potatoes until vegetables are tender and chicken is cooked through.
Arrange on a serving platter and garnish with chopped parsley(optional) and feta cheese crumbles and serve.
