3 tbsp olive oil

Let's get cooking!

1. Marinade Combine the marinade ingredients in a large bowl or ziplock bag, add

chicken, and mix well to make sure each piece is coated. Marinate for 24 hours, or at least 3.

2. Cook the chicken

Grill: place chicken on a nice med-high heated grill, and cook for 4-

5 minutes on each side until nicely charred. 

Skillet: heat a large non-stick pan with 1

tablespoon of olive oil over med-high heat, and cook chicken for 4-5 minutes on

each side until nicely browned.

3. Let the chicken rest for a few minutes and slice!

To Serve:

Pile onto a platter alongside flatbreads, lettuce, sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion

and yogurt sauce, tahini or hummus and enJOY!

Chef’s Pro Tip:

You can use chicken breast, just be more careful to not over cook! You can also make this recipe ahead by mixing the marinade and chicken in a Ziplock bag and freezing, and

then pulling when ready to use. P.S. Try it with our legendary Garlic Tahini Sauce

I decided to order Meal Joy on a whim after stumbling across the Instagram. Ive tried many meal prep services and I haven't been too impressed until now. I'm on my first week of meals and I am extremely happy. Fresh and delicious...always being on the go it's hard to prepare the foods to eat clean. Sergio was accommodating and made sure I received my meals in time after traveling on a Sunday. Will definitely be signing up for the weekly meals and already recommended friends..thank you!!

Ron Axeirad

By far the best option around for tasty and easy prepared meals. The food is delicious and fresh, and best of all delivered to your door. The quantities are generous and the options change every week with something to please everyone. The owner Sergio is very accommodating and occasionally throws a nice surprise in with your order (chocolate dipped strawberries for Valentines Day). Wish I could have given it six stars.

Ryan M

Been a customer for two weeks straight now and couldn't be happier. Delicious, convenient, variety, portioned perfectly, reliable delivery service. I'd recommend to anyone who wants QUALITY food at an affordable price right to your door. I'm in love with the service and see myself being a longtime customer. Just ate Chipotle chicken dish (3/28/21) Absolutely amazing taste. Thank you MealJoy !!!
