INGREDIENTS (serves 4)  

For the chicken: 

4 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless 

1½ TBSP. dried tarragon 

1½ tsp. sea salt 

¾ tsp. freshly ground pepper 

¼ tsp. paprika 

3 med. dried bay leaves, crumbled  

1 TBSP. lemon zest 

3 med. garlic cloves, finely minced 

1 TBSP. Kosterina extra virgin olive oil 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1.Trim the chicken and set aside. In a small bowl, mix the next 8 ingredients to make a paste. Rub the paste all over the chicken breasts. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours. 

 

2.Preheat the grill to medium. Oil the grates well. Grill the chicken over direct heat, uncovered for 5-7 minutes per side (depending on the size of the chicken breasts.). The chicken will be done when the temperature registers 160°F.  

 

3.Remove from the heat, cover loosely with aluminum foil, and let it stand for 5 minutes or so as it finishes cooking.  

 

For the tomato relish: 

 

1 large, ripe organic tomato (or two smaller ones) 

2 TBSP. shallots, minced 

2 TBSP. red wine vinegar 

1 TBSP. small capers, rinsed well 

3 TBSP. Kosterina extra virgin olive oil 

1 tsp. Greek dried oregano 

½ tsp. sea salt 

¼ tsp. freshly ground pepper 

 

 

  1. Remove the skinand seeds of the tomato, chop it and place it in a sieve for about 10 minutes to drain the juices. 

 

2.Mince the shallots and place them in a small bowl. Add the red wine vinegar and set aside for 10 minutes. To the same bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and toss to combine. Fold in the tomatoes, taste and adjust the seasoning. 

 

3.To serve, place the grilled chicken on a serving platter and top with the fresh tomato relish (or serve on the side).
