  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts 2 in chunks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried mint
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes


  • Cut chicken breasts into 2 inch sized chunks and place in a large zip loc bag.
  • In a small bowl, wisk together marinade and pour over chicken.
  • Marinade 30 minutes or overnight.
  • When ready to grill, heat over medium-high heat rotating once until chicken is cooked through about 4 minutes per side.


Please note: most of the marinade falls all while grilling so the fat and sodium will most likely be lower once cooked.
