Grilled Garlic Herb Chicken (Paleo, Keto, Whole30)

Kate APosted by

Grilled Garlic Herb Chicken – Grilling season is almost upon us, which calls for my favorite marinade. It’s bright, packed full of flavor, and slightly tangy. It comes together quickly and it’s so versatile. Don’t try to substitute the herbs for dried in this recipe, fresh ones are essential here. This recipe is technically for chicken, but I use the basic marinade for all vegetables and pork. I save a little bit to drizzle extra on top of my chicken when it’s done cooking.  Asparagus is in season right now and my favorite vegetable to throw on the grill alongside the chicken.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium shallot
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 3 ounces fresh basil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/8 cup + 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2-3 lbs chicken thighs

Directions

Roughly chop the shallot, garlic, basil, and thyme.
