I was in the mood for Mediterranean flavors so I picked up some chicken thighs and marinated them in some olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, and red wine vinegar for a few hours. The meat was tender, juicy, and very flavorful – this dish was a huge hit with my entire family. I served this chicken with Greek Orzo for a delicious and healthy meal.
Mediterranean Chicken Thighs:
- 5 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of any fat
- 4-5 tbsp olive oil
- Juice and zest of one lemon
- 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
How to Make Mediterranean Chicken Thighs
Combine all ingredients together in a large zip lock bag. Let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Once the skillet is hot, lay the chicken thighs smooth side down in the pan and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Turn the chicken over and place it in the oven. Cook for 8 minutes or until cooked through. Let the meat rest for a few minutes.
While the meat rests, pour the marinade into the skillet and cook over high heat until it boils rapidly, about 1-2 minutes. Place the chicken on a serving plate and pour the boiled marinade on top. Enjoy.
