Easy Greek Marinade

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)

Marinade:
2 Cloves of Garlic (finely diced)
1 Lemon’s worth of lemon juice
1 Tsp Oregano
Salt & Pepper
2-3 tablespoons of Olive Oil

Sides:
Tzatziki
Steamed Rice
Naan Bread or Pita

  1. Prepare the marinade: mix together the olive oil, oregano, salt & pepper, garlic, and lemon juice.
  2. 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).
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
