Cooking Tips:

If you don’t have a grill, you can also cook the chicken in a skillet on the stovetop.

If you want to add more flavor to the dish, try adding some fresh herbs such as rosemary or thyme.

For an extra kick of flavor, try adding some freshly squeezed lemon juice to the marinade.

If you’re looking for a healthier option, try using boneless, skinless chicken breasts instead of bone-in pieces.

For an even juicier chicken, try marinating it overnight in the refrigerator before grilling.

To make sure the chicken is cooked through, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. The chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165°F before serving.

This cava grilled chicken recipe is sure to be a hit with your family and friends. Serve it up with some fresh vegetables, a side of rice, or even some crusty bread for an amazing meal that everyone will love. And don’t forget the lemon wedges for squeezing over the top! Enjoy!
