In food processor, puree together parsley, vinegar, 1/4 cup (50 mL) olive oil, oregano, garlic and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper until smooth.

Loosen 1 side of skin from each chicken breast; evenly spread parsley mixture under skin of each, pressing skin back to enclose filling. Brush skin with 1 tsp (5 mL) olive oil; sprinkle with 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper.

Place chicken on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and cook, turning once, until no longer pink inside, about 45 minutes.
