{Grilled Greek Chicken}

Let me first start by saying these are not my finest photos!  Derek and I enjoyed this delicious Greek Chicken a few weeks ago outside by our pool and I didn't have my camera with me... so iPhone photos it was!  But hey, photos are better then no photos in my eyes!   

This chicken is what I would classify as a perfect summer meal.  The chicken is light and full of flavor... and  pairs great with warm weather, wine, outdoor dining and grilled veggies!  All the things I love about summer cooking! Perfect for week nights or a weekend grill out with friends... enjoy and happy cooking!
