Mediterranean Grilled Chicken with Vegetables

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Marinade: In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, minced garlic, oregano, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  2. Marinate the Chicken: Place the chicken breasts in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken, ensuring it's well-coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  3. Preheat the Grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  4. Prepare the Vegetables: In a large bowl, toss the sliced bell peppers, red onion, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  5. Grill the Chicken and Vegetables: Grill the marinated chicken breasts for about 6-8 minutes per side or until fully cooked (internal temperature of 165°F or 74°C). While grilling the chicken, place the seasoned vegetables on the grill and cook until they are tender and have nice grill marks, usually about 5-7 minutes.
  6. Serve: Remove the chicken and vegetables from the grill. Slice the grilled chicken into strips. Arrange the grilled chicken and vegetables on a platter.
  7. Drizzle with Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Just before serving, drizzle some extra virgin olive oil over the grilled chicken and vegetables for added flavor and richness.
  8. Garnish (Optional): Garnish with fresh herbs like parsley or basil if desired.
