Our philosophy here at Living Well Spending Less is that you can never have too many quick & easy freezer meals ready to go, especially ones that use budget-friendly chicken! This tender, juicy Easy Greek Chicken is a snap to throw together but so full of flavor that it feels extra-special.

To make it as part of a freezer cooking day, just split the marinade & chicken into multiple bags, then throw it right into the freezer–no cooking required! Making it ahead of time is not necessary, though, as it is equally delicious just marinated in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Easy Greek Chicken

You can use any type of chicken but my family much prefers the boneless, skinless chicken thighs, which are a darker, juicier meat and also tend to be cheaper than the boneless skinless breasts.

Assemble the ingredients for this easy Greek chicken: lemon, rosemary, garlic, seasonings and of course, chicken.

Here is what you need:

2 lemons
1 cup olive oil
8-10 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/2 cup fresh rosemary, chopped
 3.5-4 pounds boneless chicken
 

Juice the lemons by hand into a liquid measuring cup.

Step 1: Squeeze lemons to release 2/3 cup of fresh lemon juice.

Use a garlic press to mince the garlic for this easy Greek chicken recipe.

Step 2: Mince or crush garlic in garlic press.

Chop the fragrant fresh rosemary into a fine mince for this chicken recipe.

Step 3: Remove  rosemary leaves from stalk, discard stalk, and chop leaves.

Add the rosemary to the olive oil, lemon and spices to flavor the chicken.

Step 4: Whisk lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, rosemary, cracked red pepper flakes,  seasoned salt, & pepper together in bowl, then divide into 2 1-gallon freezer bags. (If freezing, be sure to label bags ahead of time.)

Spoon the sauce over the top of the chicken, in a freezer bag over a bowl.

Step 5: Marinate chicken in bag for at least 30 minutes or longer, or press out air from bag and freeze.

Grill this delicious, moist and flavorful Greek chicken for a yummy dinner.

Step 6: Thaw if frozen. Grill 7-8 minutes per side, basting with additional marinade, if desired. Alternatively, you can pour contents into slow cooker. Cook on low for 4-5 hours or high for 2-3 hours, or place in casserole dish and bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Serve over cooked rice.
