Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Oil grill and pre heat to medium. Finely grate 1 tbsp lemon peel into a large bowl. Squeeze 1/4 c juice from lemon. Stir in oil, garlic, oregano, salt & pepper. Add Chicken & turn to coat evenly. Let stand while you prepare the sauce.
  2. For sauce, pour dressing into a small bowl. Cut tomato in half, squeeze out and discard seeds. Coarsely chop. Stir into dressing and add onion and basil.
  3. Place chicken on grill. Save oil mixture in bowl. Grill, covered, 6 minutes. Then bastes with oil mixture. Discard any remaining oil mixture. Turn chicken & continue to grill, covered until chicken feels springy when pressed 6 - 8 minutes. Place on platter, spoon sauce over top or serve sauce on the side. Excellent with Spinach - Red Onion Salad.
  4. ** You may want to increase the amount of sauce, it is yummy and I always want more.**.
