This recipe is a wonderful one. Simple, easy and quick to make, and completely delectable.
My husband and I have always enjoyed ordering Greek for take-out nights. It’s one of the healthier options out there so it’s great if you are looking for a more guilt-free choice, but let’s face it take-out is expensive.
For years I have wanted to be able to recreate my take-out experience with my own recipe. And I have finally done just that!
What you’ll need:
2 Chicken Breasts or 1 Pork Tenderloin (cut into medium sized pieces)
1/2 of a Red or Yellow Onion
1 Red Bell Pepper (chopped into large pieces)
2 Cloves of Garlic (finely diced)
1 Lemon’s worth of lemon juice
1 Tsp Oregano
Salt & Pepper
2-3 tablespoons of Olive Oil
Naan Bread or Pita
- Prepare the marinade: mix together the olive oil, oregano, salt & pepper, garlic, and lemon juice.
- Cut the meat (chicken or pork tenderloin) into medium sized pieces and place in a container. Pour in the prepared marinade over the meat, and mix thoroughly. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for 30 min to 1 hour (or longer if you like and have the time).
- Once the meat has marinated, in a large pan add in a splash of extra olive oil, the chopped onion, and the meat. Sauté until the meat is cooked through. Add in the bell peppers and cover with a pot lid to let the peppers cook and soften. *You can also make these into kabobs and cook them on the barbecue if you’ve got one!
- Once the meat, onions, and peppers are cooked through they can be served with your preferred sides.
A favourite in our house, I am so proud of this marinade. And with the sides? It really is like having take-out but less expensive and homemade!
I’d love it if you gave this marinade a try. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
