“This grilled chicken recipe is a nice change from the usual grilled chicken. Although the recipe says to serve it over green chili sauce, I think it will also be great with rice and a green beans or brocolli. Recipe source: Coyote Cafe”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make a horizontal slit in each chicken breast.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper and then marinate chicken in the olive oil for 30 minutes.
  3. While chicken is marinating combine cheese, marjaram and garlic until a smooth paste is formed.
