Grilled Greek Chicken Primavera

Hiding in my cupboard was a shaker of Cavender's Greek Seasoning. After a bit of experimentation,
I discovered it made a good marinade for grilled chicken! Just to change things up,
I hauled my cast iron skillet to the grill and sauteed some vegetables while the chicken was grilling.
We had leftover egg noodles, so they got to be the sauce carrier....

1 lb chicken tenders or boneless chicken
Marinate for 1/2 hour to 4 hours, refrigerated
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup white wine (I used Chardonnay)
2 TBSP Greek Seasoning
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 garlic clove sliced thin
3 TBSP olive oil
When ready to grill, drain the chicken.
Always oil your grill grates after they get hot, then grill chicken until done, about 3 minutes per side if thin.
1 yellow or red bell pepper, cut in 1-2 inch long thin strips
1/2 onion, cut into thin slices then quartered
5 garlic cloves sliced very thin (feel free to use less)
1 stalk celery, cut thin
1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced
15 cherry tomatoes cut in half
1 tsp fresh rosemary (for dried use 1/2 as much)
1 TBSP fresh parsley (for dried use 1/2 as much)
2 tsp Greek Seasoning
1/2 tsp Sugar
2-3 TBSP Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Dried Oregano
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
4 TBSP White Wine Vinegar
1/2 cup White Wine
1/2 cup Chicken Stock
Saute the veggies in the olive oil. Add the mushrooms, garlic and tomatoes about 3 minutes
after the others have started. When softened, add spices and liquids, heat to a boil,
and thicken with 1 TBSP cornstarch mixed into 1/4 cup water or stock.
Hmm, I wonder if a bit of ouzo would be good in the marinade? :)

Nice job GF!


If eating tasty stuff is a sin, I am certainly going south.

If you can't find a prepared blend, make yourself a mixture of oregano, rosemary and thyme.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Here's a clone recipe for the brand seasoning I use. Looks pretty close, based on package ingredients...

2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1-1/2 teaspoons onion powder
1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules, (or pareve bouillon)
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sugar

Harrison, Arkansas (my home town) is the home of Cavender's Greek Seasoning (about 2 miles from my house.) If you can't find it in a store near you, let me know and I can mail some to you.

Or for bulk orders:
