This Mediterranean mixed grill is the perfect, easy, summer night dinner on the barbecue. Healthy, satisfying and most importantly full of flavour. Switch out the vegetables for any of your favourites; asparagus, mushrooms, eggplant, sweetcorn or more.
  • In a bowl or large ziplock bag, combine the chicken breasts, along with the marinade ingredients. Refrigerate for up to 2 hours.

  • Arrange the mixed vegetables and chicken breasts onto a platter. Scatter the chopped herbs and crumbled feta over the vegetables. Drizzle the lemon over the chicken and vegetables then serve.

Tips:

To check that the chicken is cooked through, we recommend using a meat thermometer. Once it reaches an internal temperature of 71°C in the centre of the thickest part, remove the chicken from the barbecue and leave to rest for at least 5 minutes, the internal temperature will continue to rise past 74°C which is the safe doneness temperature for chicken.
