This chicken is delicious and so satisfying! The blend of spices are what make this chicken so flavorful. The Mediterranean Diet emphasizes big flavors through the use of a variety of spices, fresh herbs and seasonings. In addition to adding a ton of flavor, using spices, herbs and seasonings reduces the amount of salt needed to flavor a dish.

To make this a complete meal, serve this chicken with your favorite whole grain like brown rice, farro or quinoa, and a vegetable side like a big green salad or steamed broccoli.
