I’m just going to get straight to the point here, this Grilled Greek Chicken Recipe was AMAZING. It was so beautiful, and full of flavor, and so incredibly easy to make.
I marinated it the night before, so the chicken breasts were really tender and juicy. I grilled mine using an indoor grill pan because my husband wasn’t home, and I hate messing with the real grill. It turned out perfect, and I was able to get it on the table in about 15-20 minutes.
My favorite part is the amazing tomato, mint, olive, and feta topping…OH.Em.GEE….it is incredible. So fresh and light tasting…absolutely perfect for a Weight Watchers Summer Recipe.
Plus, it’s low carb, high in protein, and very satisfying for being so low in Points. My whole family loved this, and I cannot wait to make it again. This one is a MUST try.
