This past weekend, I decided I wanted chicken thighs at some point this week. So I started with my friend Kamala's recipe that she shared with me a couple of years ago, then tweaked it a little bit.
(Mostly) Greek Chicken
chicken thighs (though you can use any part of the chicken)
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tbsp minced garlic
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 bottle of beer
Put your chicken in a large enough container to hold them all in a single layer. Cover with the minced garlic, olive oil and the lemon juice. For all the spices, sprinkle over the top of all the chicken (if you need measurements, roughly 1-3 tbsp will season all of it, but I'm a fan of season to taste). Pour in the bottle of beer. Marinate for 8 hours or over night. Turn them over once and spread them around to make sure they're thoroughly marinated.
To cook, use either the grill or the oven. I used the oven on 350 on the broiler pan for 1 hour.
They turned out lovely, smelled delicious the entire time they cooked, and tasted great as well (:
In case you wondered, Kamala's original recipe for Greek Chicken uses 1/2 cup of oil, no beer and no parsley. (;
In either case, it's excellent served with couscous or rice!
