The Mediterranean Chicken Platter

I keep being asked for this recipe and I keep forgetting to give it to everyone so here is my shortcut. This is a great crowd pleasure and can feed a bunch of people. The best part though are The Leftovers in my humble opinion. Oh BTW the base recipe came from Sunset Magazine sometime in the past. You will need a really big platter...I found this turquoise one I use and it measures 19 inches across. I made this the first time for Linda Gibson's birthday and ironically that is the picture I cannot find.

The ingredients:

1 -1/2 C chopped parsley

3 TBS minced garlic

Heavy squeeze of anchovy paste

1/2 tsp each salt and pepper

1/2 tsp red chile flakes

1 tsp lemon zest

1/2 C EVOO

chicken tenders-pound out any really thick ones. I use about 4 chicken breasts worth. For a really large crowd double)

1 C each sliced green olives and halved cherry tomatoes

2 TBS capers..I don't drain nor chop.

1 TBS lemon juice.

1. Make marinade: Stir together parsley, garlic, anchovy, salt, pepper, chile flakes, lemon zest and EVOO in bowl. Put 1/2 of it in large ziplock, add chicken, massage it in and put in fridge for at least 8 hours if not overnight. Keep rest of marinade in fridge.

2. About 45 minutes before serving mix together the green olives, tomatoes, capers, lemon juice and the remaining marinade, let get to room temp.

3. Drain and pat dry the chicken, grill on medium high heat until golden and cooked through.

4. Platter in this order, arrange decoratively anyway you wish.

6 C cooked quinoa

Grilled Chicken, pour marinade over it.

Fresh Mozzarella cheese (either a log of fresh you can dice up and marinade in artichoke heart marinade plus Italian seasoning and red chile flakes for a day or get the marinaded buffalo mozzarella)

1 C kalamata olives-whole

1 C artichoke hearts, cut into smaller pieces

Grilled pita, sliced into triangles, brushed with EVOO and za'atar.
