Greek Chicken Thighs

Greek Marinated Chicken Thighs are simple and easy to make on a weeknight. You can add this chicken to a salad, make it into a sandwich, or just serve it with a side.


How long to marinate? : The longer you marinate the chicken, the better. I find it’s easiest to do it right before work. It should only take 10 minutes to put the whole thing together. One time I only marinated the chicken for 20 minutes, and it just wasn’t the same. The longer, the better
