Grilled chicken

This chicken is everything! It’s just what you need on a weeknight when you don’t know what to do with the chicken you defrosted and you want to eat dinner NOW. You don’t have to marinate it  in advance either, just ten minutes will do the trick. I make this chicken on a grill pan, because the charred lines make it taste even better, but a simple frying pan will do just fine.

Here’s what you need:

2 pounds chicken fillets, thinly sliced

4-5 T lemon juice

1/2 t paprika

1/2 t dried oregano

1/4 t mustard powder

1/2 t freshly ground black pepper

salt to taste

Just mix everything up and leave the chicken to marinate while you make a salad or set the table. Then heat your grill pan on a medium heat, when it’s hot add a little oil and grill the chicken, turning only when each side has a beautiful set of charred lines.


I serve this chicken with some delicious falafel, hummus, fattoush and pita bread. I sometimes alternate this recipe with my lemon oregano chicken. Both are delicious, but this one seems to be my favourite nowadays!
