Fire up your Louisiana Grills pellet grill on SMOKE mode and let it run with lid open for 10 minutes then preheat to 400°F. If using a gas or charcoal grill, set it up for medium-high heat.
- Place chicken breast on a cutting board and trim off excess fat and cartilage. Season chicken with Champion Chicken.
- Grill the chicken 3 to 4 minutes per side, then remove and set aside on a plate.
- Place a cast iron skillet on the grill, then heat olive oil and butter in the skillet, then sprinkle in the flour. Stir for 1 minute to cook the flour, then add in the chicken stock, garlic, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, lemon zest and juice. Stir well, then return the chicken breast to the skillet. Allow chicken to simmer in sauce for 5 to 7 minutes, until cooked through.
- Remove Mediterranean chicken from the grill. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve warm.
