Italian Spice Rubbed Grilled Chicken
It’s a new year and I’m assuming some of you have made a resolution or two to lose some weight. You’ve come to a good place then; I’m here to help. Nutrition is key to a healthy lifestyle but it doesn’t matter how disciplined you are, if you don’t enjoy what you’re eating then eventually you’re going to give up. That’s why I love this recipe; it’s virtually fat free and is loaded with flavour and protein. Use this as a method instead of a recipe and experiment with the spices and herbs you love. Check out another recipe of mine here for more inspiration.
1 tsp (dried) oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp (dried) thyme
¼ tsp pepper
4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts, fat trimmed off (about 3.5 oz/125 g each)
Combine the oregano, garlic powder, salt, thyme and pepper and rub it all over the chicken breasts, coating them completely on both sides.
Let the rub sit on the chicken for 5 – 10 minutes before cooking.
Cook the chicken according to my Guide For Awesome Grilled Chicken.
Transfer the chicken breasts to a cutting board to rest for at least 5 minutes and then cut them into strips.
- I love this chicken on a sandwich with tomato and pesto-mayo (combine 1 tbsp light mayo with 1 tsp pesto sauce).
- If you like a little heat you could add a ¼ to ½ tsp cayenne pepper.
