The chicken is brushed with olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper and then grilled. The best part about this recipe is the dressing that gets a lot of its flavor from roasted garlic and fresh herbs such as oregano and parsley. The dressing is prepared in a blender and served over the chicken. I like to also serve a salad on the side and use the dressing for the salad. Enjoy.
