Greek Chicken

DF, GF

With spring in the air I can’t help but think of recipes that cater to the warmer weather and fresh spring ingredients.  Herbs are one of the first crops of the season.  They grow just as quickly in pots in the city as they do in a garden in the burbs.  And they add so much flavor without any added calories or fat, which is one thing on everyone’s mind as bathing suit season approaches.  This recipe can also be prepared on an outdoor grill, so versatile and delicious its one everyone should have in their back pocket.
