  • Yields: 4 Servings


Essential Tools

Meat mallet

Instant-read thermometer


4 (7 to 8 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp Mediterranean Rub & Marinade

Vegetable oil (for grill)



1Preheat a gas or charcoal grill on medium (350°F-400°F) for 15 minutes.

2Lay chicken between plastic wrap on a cutting board. Use a meat mallet to pound the chicken to ¾-inch thick. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel. Sprinkle the chicken with Mediterranean Rub & Marinade.

3Place chicken breasts on a well oiled, hot grill grate. Cook the chicken, covered, turning once halfway through, for approximately 12 minutes until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast reaches 165°F.

4Serve immediately.


  • Use 1 tsp Mediterranean Rub & Marinade per 7 to 8 ounce chicken breast
  • Pounding slightly allows them to cook evenly.
  • Perfectly cooked chicken should feel springy when pressed and the juices should be clear without any reddish tone.
  • To freeze leftover chicken, let the chicken cool completely, then cut into strips before freezing.
  • To cook the chicken breasts on the stovetop, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to skillet and reduce the heat to medium. Add the seasoned, pounded chicken breasts and cook 1 minute; turn the chicken and cook 1 minute longer. Reduce the heat to low and tightly cover the skillet. Cook chicken undisturbed for approx. 12 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the chicken reaches 165ºF.
  • Serve with a side of dipping sauce by combining ½ cup mayonnaise and 1 tsp Mediterranean Rub & Marinade.
